Overview

Book One of the Awakening Trilogy: Bonus Edition

In the middle of the night Caislyn Vadoma auto-sketches a scene in which her parents are kidnapped from the family bookstore. She awakens in the morning to find that her sketch, a rare glimpse into the future, has already become reality.

Jasmine DeLaney leaves her life behind when an abusive boyfriend puts her in the hospital. She becomes Jaxon, an art consultant in a new town, always looking over her shoulder for the danger she knows will catch up to her eventually.

As Caislyn scrambles for clues to her parents' whereabouts, she casts a spell that leads her to Jaxon. From the moment they meet, the girls are immersed in a world of chaos and secrets. Finding out they are part of a very dangerous prophecy not only has them on the run, but discovering their own hidden pasts as well.

While trying to come to grips with who they are, how they fit into this prophecy, and where Caislyn's parents are the girls must also face the fact that the stalker vampire who appears to be helping them, may just be putting them in more danger.

* This is the bonus edition of Birthrights which includes the novel as well as three short stories.

Editorial Reviews

Patria Dunn-Rowe
Don't you hate when you get to the end of a book, and you are so into it, that you find yourself checking to make sure there are no more pages to read!? ...With so many books out here today focusing on the Vampire world, I was pleasantly surprised to see how the author -Christine Butler- incorporated `Vamps' in such a way that they played more of a background role throughout. I, personally have never fallen in love with a Witch story like I did this one...
J.A. Paul
...The two main characters in this story come across as being very relatable to the reader. As I read along, I found myself nodding my head as the character's mannerisms and quirks felt real. I know someone like that...
I also felt as though I was fighting and struggling right alongside the two main characters. Oh, and there's that troublesome, meddlesome vampire who... well I don't want to give anything away.
...I found this book to be an entertaining read which left me wanting more.
Jax Hix
Birthrights is an exciting read that is impossible to put down! From the moment I began reading, this book wove a spell around me and I found myself reading late into the night... a world where humans and non-humans coexist, with character descriptions and personalities so vivid they become real. Worth every penny and then some...Birthrights definitely has a place on your favorite book list!

    Birthrights!!! WOW!!!!!

    Don't you hate when you get to the end of a book, and you are so into it, that you find yourself checking to make sure there are no more pages to read!? This is what happened to me at the end of Birthrights. The extreme detail, and the vivid description of each character and creature ranging from Feys to Lycans to Weres to Vamps, and last but certainly not least in this story -Witches-, left me feeling like that author is indeed a witch herself -living among us in our human world-. How else could she have written so specifically about the many different powers that each of the character had, their way of life and the story behind it? *Shaking my head in awe*



    In my mind, I was living the story with the two main characters -Caislyn and Jaxon-. I laughed with them through their discoveries, and my heart went out to them at their human like need to search for answers to what had happened to the both of them that brought them to the point in the book. By the end, I found my self wishing that the second book in this trilogy was already out so that I keep on reading. I want more! More answers, more story, more Witches!



    With so many books out here today focusing on the Vampire world, I was pleasantly surprised to see how the author -Christine Butler- incorporated 'Vamps' in such a way that they played more of a background role throughout. I, personally have never fallen in love with a Witch story like I did this one, and it has really opened my mind to wanting to check out more book like this.



    I can only imagine what Caislyn and Jaxon have waiting for them in book 2 of the Awakening trilogy, and I'm anxiously waiting for its release in September 2011!

    WOW A Must Read

    Birthright is an exciting read that you just can't put down. From the moment I started to read i was spell bound...the 2 main characters Cari and Jax are great. Its a world where humans and non-humans coexist the character descriptions and personalities are so vivid they become real and you laugh and cry with them. I loved this boook so much that i had to purchase the 2nd one called Revalations and can't wait for the final book to be released this year.

    Typos!!

    This is a really good, although long book. My only probem is that there are way too many typos and I have to read certain parts over again to realize what is going on. To me, it seems that this book was not properly edited or published because I haven't seen this many typos since junior high school.

    Thanks to all for the info..I am so disgusted by this trend  that so many Authors are  now using  called  "CLIFFHANGERS ".. I have  started keeping a list of Authors who end their stories  this way so that I will never  pick up a story written them.
