About the book...

A School Beyond Magic and Time...

The stories of Amberly Wakefield and Morgan Achron connect in a place of magic and mystery...

After her parent's divorce, Amberly arrives in Locke Lake with her mother to move into the "Gray Lady," a historic home with a local reputation of tragedy and paranormal activity. After experiencing some ghostly events, Amberly meets Violet, who offers to solve her problem. Violet's reasons for helping seem to match the motives of her mentor, Markus Burne.

Miles away, Markus Burne's daughter Morgan Fay Achron has the power of three and the gift of time. Abandoned by her father, she exists in misery with her stepmother. Then her grandfather, Arthur Achron arrives. She leaves the only home she's known to seek answers.

With ingenuity and a white lie, she surprises the Illuminiers. They find her dishonesty unwelcome, distrusting her nearly as much as the person who tried to destroy them. To use the framework, Morgan has to fight to gain the trust of the Illuminiers. When the time comes, will Morgan betray the Illuminiers as her father would have it? Can she resist the lure of unlimited power?

This book is a good contemporary reading selection for anyone who likes mythical creatures; some invented, some from legends. There are two stories in this book that combine into one. The first portion features some background on Locke Lake's most haunted house and the story of Amberly Wakeland.

The second story is about Morgan Fey Burne who would rather be referred to as Morgan Achron. She follows her own path and with some mysterious objects, she finds Elderwynne's Academy.

Eventually, Amberly's and Morgan's paths collide and their lives are drastically changed.

Editorial Reviews

Book Reviews - Kara J
Talking statues, fiendish demons and magic timepieces abound in this clever book about the mysterious town of Locke Lake and the students of the secret Elderwynne Academy.

After the death of her mother and the sudden disappearance of her father, Morgan Burne moves to Locke Lake to live with her grandfather. It only takes one day at her new school to flip Morgan’s entire world upside down. She learns that she is an “illuminier” and heir to a powerful magical legacy (and fortune).
New York Book Pundit - Meghan NY
Fans of JK Rowling’s ‘Harry Potter’ series who have been aching to find a worthy successor to fill the void created by the fact that Rowling has put an end to the story should go check out Patricia Arnold’s ‘The Illuminiers’. Brilliantly and beautifully written, with an emotional gravitas and dazzle that remind you of some of the genre’s best books in the past decade, ‘The Illuminiers’ is hugely entertaining that people of all ages.
