Overview

Iron & Wine is an Urban Fantasy set in a world full of hidden magical places and secret societies cloaked by modern day. In the first instalment of the Iron World Series, young artist Avery Quinn reluctantly leaves behind her quiet and comfortable home in the country and moves to the city with her best friend Julie Ryan. With the expectation that college will be the most exciting part of her life, Avery hopes that her little world remains quiet and simple. But after a troublesome blue sprite looking for help appears in her bedroom one night, her boss turns out to be a three hundred year old vampire, and her best friend accidentally reveals herself as an orphaned pixie, school quickly becomes the least of her worries. Every aspect of Avery's life explodes with mythical beings and legendary creatures who all play a very important role in her existence. Some are friends, some are guardians, while others quickly become life threatening and deadly enemies. Avery must learn to juggle living in both her world and theirs, but in this magical tale of strange love, strong bonds and scary beings; what once was nothing more than mere fairy tales told to her by her Aunt Tess are now a scary reality and Avery has somehow landed deep in the middle with little or no way out except death or worse...the loss of her humanity.

Meet the Author

Born in 1985 in North York Ontario, I began to travel with my parents at the very young age of four years old. I had lived all over Canada and seen everything my country has to offer, from the enchanting shores of Newfoundland to the gigantic snow capped mountains of British Columbia all by the time I was ten. I did, however, spend most of my life in Eastern Canada where I was surrounded by folklore and legends, not knowing how they would shape my personality and imagination for the rest of my life.
Being the only girl of my age in a small group of kids, in an even smaller town, left me spending most of my time by myself and, in result, letting my imagination take over. I would sit by the shore and dream up stories of mermaids and other fantastic creatures to pass the time. Coming from a family with writers and artists dispersed throughout, it was only natural that I spend my time writing, drawing and reading. I dreamed of becoming nothing more than an artist, a creator of any kind. By the age of eleven, I spent most of my waking hours scribbling down short stories, poems and anything else I could think of, while adding my own personal illustrations. By the age of fourteen, I had won numerous minor arts and writing competitions.
I excelled at anything art and literature related so, naturally, I planned to attend university for nothing more or less than that. In 2003 I planned to attend university for Creative Writing and Literary Studies. But, with the fear that I would spend all my time and money on an education and end up in a field that I may very well struggle to succeed in, I backed out and attended school for Design instead. Now, a successful Designer specializing in interiors, I met a man and fell in love. His passion and talent for art far exceeds my own, but he motivated me and awakened my old habits of staying up late and waking up early to scribble down dreams and ideas before I had forgotten them and they disappeared forever.

    Dear Anonymous/ x2 stars/ For Teens,
    Thank you for your comment, I take it as nothing more than constructive criticism =) I always appreciate an opportunity to improve! Now that Iron & Wine is set to be available in paperback I will look more closely at the grammar.

    Sincerely,
    Candace Osmond, author of Iron & Wine

    In all fairness, this chick is an idependant author. According to her website she has no technical training in writing, her experience is with design. I read the book, yes there are grammar mistakes, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will read the next one and anything else this girl writes. It's not the writing that draws you in it's the imagination she uses.

    Dear author,
    While I enjoyed this book enough to finish it, I highly recommend you spend more time editting it. The constant conflict of verb tenses and inappropriare punctuation detracted from my enjoyment of the book. Better luck next time.

    I hate grammar nazis. At least the author tried. But with hateful criticisms like yours, i doubt she'll continue. Get a life and stop harassing others.

    An interesting story and take on the whole faeries, vampires, werewolves thing. I really enjoyed this book. There were a few grammar and spelling errors but not enough to distract me from the story line. I can't wait to read the next book.

    Not a bad first attempt.  The book is in need of a good editor to fix the grammar and continuity. In lieu of an editor, having a few people from a writer's workshop look it over would also be helpful.
    This is definitely a book for teens rather than older readers.  I couldn't personally make it past page 130 due to some of the odd phrasing and grammar.  This seems more like a rough draft than a final copy to me.

    Now, with all that said, I believe the book has promise, and could be an entertaining read for younger readers.
