Overview

A fresh and exciting debut novel introducing the Chronicles of the Applecross.

Lora Blackgoat, smuggler and mercenary, has been laying low after a job gone bad made her a laughing stock in the industry. When a childhood friend turns to her for help, Lora leaps to restore her reputation and starts hunting a killer who is stalking the gas-lit streets.

She never expects that her path will lead her to the Order of Guides, a sadistic militant religious organisation - or to Roman, a deadly and dangerously attractive half-angel warrior who also hunts the killer.

When Lora discovers that the killer has broken fundamental laws of magic to enter the city, she also uncovers a conspiracy that leads back into her own dark past.

    Dark and Sinister

    Welcome to a dark world filled with demons and satyrs and magic. Chaos Born by Rebekah Turner is the foundation for a new series, Chronicles from the Applecross. Within the Weald, a magical world within another, its citizens all are some type of supernatural beings, and there is an organized hierarchy on the streets that almost seems mob-like. Lora has fallen on hard times, her last job was a disaster, there is a contract out on her and just staying alive seems to be a fulltime job. When she is approached to help out an old friend, how can she say no? In a world where loyalty can be bought, Lora is unsure who to trust, it seems everyone has their own agenda and Lora is caught in the middle. When the hellspawn attack and the leylines go wonky, even her magic could fail her. Welcome to Lora’s world. Think Thunderdome with dark magic.

    When an author starts a new series, there has to be a sturdy foundation. Rebekah Turner has created an intensely dark world, gritty and intense, almost over-powering with its detail, but I did say ALMOST! As the backbone of the series, I see some intriguing reading to follow! There is an edgy and sinister feel that runs throughout this tale that sometimes feels rather steampunkish in its attitude.

    Lora is a tough, but lonely and sometimes self-conscious heroine, definitely flawed, right on down to her limp. She has magic, and brains and snark to the hilt. Told through her eyes, the journey through the Weald and Lora’s life while inside her brain is like a trip through an emotional maze, listening to her mental banter, her assessments of each situation, her feelings toward others around her. The satellite characters are equally well done, but interestingly, they have a slight smudge, making them just a little mysterious, as if they are hiding something from Lora. From start to finish, the action unfolds one scene after another in vivid detail.
    Ms. Turner has created a great series for lovers of dark fantasy who enjoy edge of the seat turmoil, oily dark villains and intensely twisted plots!

    The first book in the Chronicles of Applecross is an adventure of magic and the paranormal.
    A job gone wrong has made Lora Blackgoat a laughing stock as a smuggler and mercenary, so when a friend asks her for help she jumps at the chance to restore her reputation. What she uncovers in her investigation not only leads her to the sadistic militant religious Order of Guides and to Roman, a dangerous nephilim who also hunts the killer, she discovers that the killer has broken the fundamental laws and of magic and a conspiracy that goes back to her own dark past.
    The author has created a great urban fantasy world that promises great entertainment.  The conflicts in the plot are well detailed and the motivations of the characters clearly defined in this smooth flowing plot.  All of the characters have strong, attention grabbing personalities that keeps the readers entertained throughout.
    Lora is a kick ass heroine, who makes mistakes and thinks she knows it all, but finds that everything is what it seems. She’s one of those characters you don’t know whether to cheer her on or yell at her to stop, but the reader definitely wants to know what she will do next. She has a romantic interest in Seth, one of the Black Watchmen, but also finds herself attracted to Roman.  
    I almost put this book down at first, the book starts off with Lora on a job, but seems to proceed slowly to the next point, but I am very glad that I kept reading and once the plot really gets going there is never a dull moment with lots of action.  The author creates an intriguing and complex world with vivid intensity and great detail.  I am looking forward to reading Lora’s next adventure.
