Dark Winter by John Hennessy
Romilly Winter is no ordinary heroine, just a reluctant one. She has a gift. She can see the future. But can she see far enough? The world in which she lives is under attack – the dead are rising, and evil follows her at every turn.
From the Diary of Romilly Winter, October 14th.
“I’ve had two years to prepare for this. In that time, I have never told a soul. Of course, my Nan knew. She’d bequeathed me the mirror, after all.
Now, maybe tonight, tomorrow, in a few days, the event that I don’t want to happen with all my heart, will come to pass. I’m not ready. I know I’m not ready, and yet, it will happen nonetheless.
Nan had this thing in her possession for nearly seventy years. She had told me I simply had to be at Rosewinter, prior to my sixteenth birthday no matter what objections my parents raised. She said I was ‘special’, and was the only one equipped to deal with what was coming.
The problem is, I don’t feel special, I just feel…different, and in all probability, that isn’t going to be good enough.
In just two days time, I will be sixteen years old, and if anything my Nan said is remotely true, I will be lucky to survive that long…”
My first book was published in 2011. Whilst I am working on a follow up, I’ve been interested in all sorts of genres, and I will pretty much read anything.In 2012, I completed a first draft of an epic fantasy novel and hope to release it in 2013. Closer to release in 2013 is ‘Dark Winter’ – a paranormal horror aimed at the YA/NA market.
If that’s you, and you are planning to / have read the book (s) let me know, I’ll always be happy to hear from you.
