Overview

Robin St. James and the Secrets of the Chosen, a young adult literary fiction, follows the plight of a teenage girl, who uncovers a dark family legacy that thrusts her life into a spiral of intrigue, deception and uncertainty.

In a desperate search for answers to her grandfather George's mysterious disappearance, Robin stumbles upon a seemingly fictional reality that not only provides painful answers, but a given destiny beyond rational comprehension; a quest to return a core stone of unbridled power and knowledge to it's rightful place, ensuring the future equilibrium of life.

With danger around every corner Robin confides her plight to her American cousin Terry. Their path is fraught with difficulty, from a complicated love interest with Logan Elgar to a first encounter with the Collective - an evil clan driven by lustful greed. A final collision between forces proves Terry's loyalty to a devastating end. Robin fears defeat but is confronted by echoes of the past that show the way forward.

Fulfilling her legacy, Robin readies herself for the next journey, aware of the continuing struggle that lies ahead and the bittersweet taste any relationship with a nemesis will bring.

Read an Excerpt

What makes a legend? By definition it’s a popular story handed down from earlier times whose truth has not been ascertained. There are many that have been told from generation to generation, but what about the ones that are so monumental they are kept as secrets? The ones deemed so totally fantastical, surely they could never be a reality. They are the ones that shield the most honest truths and the reason for that is simple; to protect us from ourselves in our crazed quest for understanding and power and ensure the continuation of life as we have come to know it.

The St Jameses are the keepers of one such monumental legacy, probably the largest with which you could ever be entrusted. They live on the outskirts of the seemingly sleepy village of Hollymartin, in a pretty little house called Lillyway. The past years have been strangely cruel to the St Jameses and they have been scrutinised following a series of weird occurrences, leading people to believe this family must be avoided. The most recent oddity occurred on March the 6th this year, when George St James mysteriously disappeared without trace.

Let me explain.
