Overview

For many years the humans in Orgarlan have been forbidden to learn magic of any kind. In fact the humans were to be eradicated by order of Lord Ky'debaul unless there were special exceptions of the species that he claimed for his slave stock. But a band of humans escaped his clutches by hiding well beyond his reaches.

Monica, Wenda and Darmin are three cousins in this group of humans who have been living with their Aunt Grecha since they were small, in the midst of the jungle of Orgarlan, safe from Lord Ky'debaul.

These three cousins have been learning magic from their aunt who happens to be one of the strongest witches on this side of the continent.

Monica and Darmin are at the age to pass their first rite for learning this magic from their aunt, the ability to learn the magic that is held in the pages of the book of Hestate.

Darmin wants the book of Hestate but Monika inherited it. With this book she can destroy Lord Ky'debaul and take his castle and his throne.

Monika fears her Aunt Grecha is mortified by her failing the rite of passage with a binding cloth her cousin has switched on her. She goes in search of someone else who is willing to teach her how to use magic.

As time passes, Monika learns her Aunt has passed away and has left her estate behind to Monika's care. The most important part of this estate is the secret magic book of Hestate, a book that has been handed down through the ages and left in the care of one of whom will keep it from being misused.

The only problem - the demon imps that Monika and Darmin have bonded with from their rite of passage as familiars are playing a game of shell with this very special grimoire.

Meet the Author

While in high school, Linda discovered her love for reading fantasy. It all began with the Tolkien Hobbit series. From there she found Ann McCaffrey's Dragon Riders of Pern. After that she couldn't stop reading fantasy.

After high school she moved from Massachusetts, where she grew up, to New Hampshire. That is where she raised her two now grown children. Her daughter blessed her with a granddaughter three years ago. These two children brought issues in to her life while they were in their teens, sparking her to begin writing Teen Contemporary. This was how the Wings from Ashes series came about.

But her love for fantasy is still strong, leading to her desire to write her fantasy series. Orgarlan Saga is her escape from reality series. She has had a lot of fun writing it too.

When Linda isn't writing, she likes being in her garden. She is also a knitter, crocheter, and a reader. The rest of her time is spent with her dog Julie, two cats - Sam and Gracie, and her pet laying hens.

She still lives in Southern New Hampshire.

    Our story begins with Monika, a young witch, that has to practice in
    secret thanks to Lord Ky'debaul taking them to his castle. Monika is
    preparing for her first rite of passage bonding with an imp familiar.
    She is proud of her binding cloth now finished waiting for Lunar
    Ceremony. Little does Monika know that her cousin Darmin covets what
    Monika has. Darmin secretly wants all the attention that their Aunt
    Grecha lavishes on her cousins Monika and Wenda. Darmin feels that she
    is the better witch and cannot understand why her Aunt Grecha only
    teaches Wenda and Monika instead of her. Darmin switches her poorly made
    binding cloth with Monika's binding cloth then she asks her Aunt Grecha
    to be included in the Lunar Ceremony in two days time. Aunt Grecha
    reluctantly agrees to Darmin's request wondering what she's up to now.
    Monika discovers that the binding cloth she has is not her own yet can't
    prove it to her Aunt Grecha before the ceremony. The Lunar Ceremony
    moves forward as plan, Monika knows that her binding cloth is not her
    own, when the demon Belial appears in sacred circle instead of an imp.
    Monika is heartbroken and crushed by these turn of events where she
    flees to her room after the ceremony. Monika is unable to sleep and
    seeks out a spell to prove that she is not lying about the binding cloth
    not being the one she made. Wenda warns Monika about proving Darmin
    switching binding cloths to be dangerous for Monika. The truth is
    revealed yet Aunt Grecha won't hear of it at all and tells Monika that
    she can no longer teach her magic. Monika resolves to leave that very
    day to find a teacher stronger in magic. Monika feels that she is being
    guided by the Moon Goddess in her quest. Eventually Monika makes her way
    Cut Back Bay and Paniz's house. Paniz is surprised to find Monika at her
    doorstep two months earlier than expected but maybe tha is for the best.
    Paniz slowly teaches Monika about the magic she has within herself.
    Meanwhile back at Aunt Grecha's, Darmin is seeking more and more magic
    around her. Wenda stays out of Darmin's way much to Darmin's dismay.
    Aunt Grecha suddenly dies which frightens Wenda to no end. Wenda sends
    letters to her brother and Monika about her fears. Darmin is searching
    for a powerful grimoire called Hestate which has been in her Aunt
    Grecha's possession and now is nowhere to be found despite Darmin's
    efforts to finding it. Who are the imp's familiars belong too? Will
    Darmin find the grimoire? What will Monika learn from Paniz? What does
    Lord Ky'debaul do about human witches? Can Wenda and Monika escape Lord
    Ky'debaul's grasp? Will Darmin get what she wants? Your answers await
    you in Witch Book.
