On Tuesdays I post a teaser for my current work in progress along with my friend M.R. Graham. I invite my writer friends to join in. If you do, post a link in the comments.
Post a link, image, quote, or excerpt related to or taken from your current WIP.
State the name of the WIP.
Do NOT explain yourself! Resist the urge to wax poetic. This is a hint, not an outline.
ALCHEMY (First Draft is DONE!)
Zoe Delarey has been hiding her entire life.
She's not a normal girl, even by witch standards. Created by her father with forbidden experimental magic, Zoe is an alchemical child.
When the Regent suspects her father has broken sector laws, he hides her away in a secret stasis chamber protected by powerful magic.
But it isn't her father who wakes her. Instead, Bastian, a handsome stranger after her father’s secrets, releases her from the chamber. With her father arrested, Zoe finds herself on the run from the Witches Council. She has no choice but to accept Bastian's help, even though she doesn't trust him. He might be rescuing her; he might be using her... Zoe is not sure.
Thrust into the real world for the first time in her life, she needs to learn to control her magic and, at the same time, get a handle on her feelings for Bastian. Neither of which is going to be easy. Especially when Zoe turns out to be the key to saving the sector from the savage beasts that prey on the lives of the people.
Will she fulfill the secret destiny that runs through her blood?
Alchemy is the thrilling 9th part of the The Othala Witch Collection. This is a paranormal romance that you won't be able to put down.
