Liam Edwin Severin is a brooding young wizard whose home has fallen prey to the Dark Circle, a group of wizards ever on the search for the chosen hero who can bring their wicked reign to an end. Having given up on any hope of a normal life, Liam succumbs to the Circle's every whim and command, in hopes that he might at least spare his parents from their wrath.
However, one evening, Liam finds an unexpected gift in his room. A young girl whom the Circle captured in hopes that Liam will gain her trust- only to torture her into becoming their spy. Liam is used to this kind of work, but this girl is different. She is Esma, a Story-traveler as well as a friend and flame from his childhood.
Can Esma use the last of her Story-traveler wishes to save both Liam and his family? And if not, how can Liam possibly spare her from the Circle's wrath? Though it seems impossible, he must find a way. For her love has made him human again, and he cannot bear the thought of losing her a second time.

"Oh my goodness. This has to be one of my favourite stories I have ever read."
~ Oriana, Goodreads
~ Stephen Burke, Goodreads
"I love the worlds and characters Christine imagines. This was such an amazing story, I couldn't put it down. "
~ Jessica Dumitru, Goodreads
"...I found that, once I started reading it, I couldn't stop...some of the writing was almost poetic. .. I was actually sorry to see it end. I can re-read it, of course, but it's not the same as reading a story for the first time... I knew I had to give the story five stars when I was about halfway through and thinking, 'I really should be going to bed... but it's only 4-something-am and I want to find out what happens at the end'."

She also donates 25% of all royalties to ALFA, a local charity that supports many of Trinity's programs.

Her most recent project includes the professional re-editing and remastering of two YA fantasy series, The Gailean Quartet and The Hero Chronicles, the latter of which will be released under the new name A Shadow Beyond Time. For this series, she has also brought an amazing new co-author onto her team, Kira Lerner, whom she has used many a time as her editor for other works.
