A bit of a late in the day post from me (manic day at work!) but I’m absolutely delighted to be on the blog tour for Awakening the Trinity by Brittany Elise today……fantastic, gripping supernatural story!
In the seventeenth-century, an all-powerful witch called Rionach the Dark ruled the Celtic nations with an army of enslaved werewolves. In order to restore balance between Light and Dark, the Trinity of Light was summoned to vanquish the Dark Witch and end the Battle of the Dark Ages.
Seventeen-year-old Quinn Callaghan lives in the small, rustic town of Silver Mountain. Its location may be rural, but it is home to an ancient pine forest that surrounds a supernatural hotspot–a nexus of raw and powerful energy.
When a charismatic witch from Ireland, and a mysterious guy with a secret of his own are drawn to the area, Quinn finds out that she inherited her rare abilities from a revered ancestor. Could it be that she shares a bloodline with the Original Trinity? Nearly 300 years later, the Darkness is returning to Silver Mountain, and the Trinity must stop it.
I love Young Adult books and a supernatural story so was looking forward to reading this and I wasn’t disappointed!
We meet Quinn, a young witch living in a small town. She’s with her best friend when she notices that there is another supernatural being around (a ‘supe’) but she doesn’t know what he is….despite the fact that she keeps bumping into him…..
On a visit to the local ‘witchy’ shop, she then meets another witch, from Ireland…very rare in her corner of the world, who helps her realise that her abilities could be more powerful that she anticipated.
We get to join them as they build relationships, find out about the powerful dark forces that are happening in their small town and discover they all could be more important and powerful than they first realised. There’s romance, suspense, murder, battles, friendship and love in this novel and it all had me completely gripped!
I really enjoyed the authors writing style and completely fell in love with the main characters. As the story progressed I was completely immersed and honestly didn’t want to put it down! I was so disappointed when I got to the end….but not because of the story, because I was gutted that it had ended!!! I’m so glad I got to read this, and literally cannot wait for the sequel……I need to know what happens next to Quinn, Wren and Blaire!
This is my first story by this author and I will definitely be looking out for more from her. Awakening the Trinity comes highly recommended from me…..roll on book number 2!!!
About the author….
My love for writing began at a very young age–way before I could even type on a keyboard. I was always writing short stories and poems with a fan club of one (my mom.) I never stopped writing, but I don’t think I believed in myself enough to actually pursue it as a career. When I enrolled in college, I took as many creative writing classes as they offered, and ended up graduating with a degree in photography and minoring in English. I enjoy art in all its forms, but writing has always been my first love. Even when I was pursuing other careers, writing was always my go-to comfort. I later became an animal obedience instructor and met a children’s author through my dog training. She helped me get my foot through the door, so to speak, and I haven’t turned back since. During the day, I manage an FBO at my local hometown airport, and by night, I dive into my writing with my husband and my four-legged children by my side.
