What happens on the Island . . . Stays on the Island.
Horizon Island is a sleepy fishing community off the coast of Maine. In the summer, tourists flock to its picturesque wharf and explore its beautiful hiking trails. In the winter, the locals board up their shops and fight shape-shifting monsters. Of course, this isn't in the brochures.
They are Clan, a magical warrior race. And they are the only ones keeping the mysterious and murderous Terrors from overrunning the world.
Nicia Silverthread doesn’t live on the Island, but she knows the truth about the Clan. She’s the daughter of an outcast. Although she has magic within her, she’s no warrior. But when she learns her grandma is dying, Nicia is determined to see her one last time. Sneaking back onto the Island is easy, but to leave...?
All she has to do is break a few magically bound contracts, destroy a Terror unlike any other, catch a murderer before they strike again, find a flower on a mountain not-quite-of-this-world, and stop herself from falling for a fiance she never wanted in the first place.
Definitely not in the brochure.

Book.2. defers the Olli & The Gate’s Story. There is however s short story at the end to catch up with them. This book continues with different characters allowing the authors imagination to be just as creative as in the first book, and is fast becoming one of my favourite series, as it is so cleverly and ingeniously written. The main characters in this story have to battle similar situations but for a whole different reason, and in a very different way. The storyline engages your attention and interest from the very beginning. The story and characters felt actual rather than imaginary, ideal or fictitious, and very real. I was transported to another world where the characters beliefs, traditions, Anger, doubts, suspicions and misgivings was challenged by the main female character, which was refreshing but scary. She constantly challenged every single decision including her own emotions whilst trying to hide her own insecurities. All this ran alongside a very innocent and meant to be, love story. I don’t like giving spoilers, so to sum up. The author has an expcetional talent, to tie this series together with different stories in each book. The emotions she gives you, become yours, your time becomes hers, as she intwines her heartfelt realism into your head and mind, until the final word. This story shows strengths, weaknesses, love, an abundance of fantasy with monsters and magic and I highly recommend this series and can’t wait to read book.3.
Amazing book! This book will draw you in and leave you wanting more. I read it in less than 24 hours, and will be first in line to receive book three when it is released. I found myself unable to put the book down. If I could give this book 10 stars I would. I recommend this book to all. Give it a shot... you will be glad you did……
