AUTHOR VIRGINIA MCKEVITT ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF
BOOK TWO OF HER FANTASY SERIES IN HER HOMETOWN OF NEW ORLEANS
Author Virginia McKevitt is pleased to announce that Pirates Alley Café and Absinthe House, in New Orleans, Louisiana, will be hosting a book signing for the release of The Hunted, on March 28, 2013 from 10:00am until (open ended). Steeped in the rich history of New Orleans, Pirates Alley Café is the perfect setting to sit and relax, enjoy a good book, and talk to the author about why she chose this special place for book two of her series Fracture The Secret Enemy Saga.
A story of death, survival, revenge, and even love. Two people, worlds apart are on a collision course with destiny. One, an assassin. A man who lives in a world where a king’s word is not questioned, and if it is, well that is what he is for. The other, a young woman whose world is about to come crashing down around her.
When Kristina Conners finds her parents brutally murdered, she vows revenge. Little does she realize she is not the only one looking for the people who killed her parents. A stranger like no one she has ever seen before is also hunting for the killers. The story he tells her is crazy. A fairytale of a world that could not possibly exist, but deep down she somehow knows he is telling the truth. Together, they will embark on a journey that will change both of their lives, forever.
McKevitt’s first book in the series, FRACTURE The Secret Enemy Saga, was released as an e-book and in paperback at Amazon.com, Barnes and Nobles, Smashword’s, and the Apple Bookstore, in early 2012. Book 2, The Hunted was released in the same format in December of 2012, with two more in the series, to be released by the end of 2013. The e-books are available worldwide via Amazon.com and Smashwords, on the Kindle and Nook, and most reading devices.
McKevitt says; “FRACTURE, is a fantasy that is set in two worlds, one similar in ways to medieval times, the other in present day small town America. Fracture not only represents the separation of two worlds but a deeper look into the lives of a man who kills for a living and a young woman who realizes her life has a different path, one that entangles them both in a destiny neither will be able to walk away from.”
Set in the shadows of Pirates Alley, and steps from the famous Saint Louis Cathedral, book two follows Tegrin and Kristina, with her friends, Jimmy and Sissy, as they embark on a journey to New Orleans to hunt, Alexasia, the High Priestess of the Couton Clan, and her sisters. Alexasia’s lust for human memories, combined with the dark magic of Voodoo, makes for a powerful enemy. One that the four companions are determined to destroy at all cost.
Mckevitt says; “The Hunted, is far more complex than just a battle of good over evil, or one enemy over another. Each of these characters, good or bad, is in conflict with their own inner demons, as well as the external forces that cold destroy them all. I quote, ‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.’ We shall see.”
Ind'tale Magazine- Virginia McKevitt writes a great sci-fi mystery thriller! She develops an enticing, believable plot, and uses each character to contribute to the story line that both intrigues and enthralls...leaves readers yearning for more.
Juliesbookreviews-Fracture was an extremely entertaining book. I loved the slow way the author lets us into the true identity of Kristina's heritage. The world of Patwain is very well developed. There are back-stories to the characters and the women of Couton could have their own book to reflect their culture and customs. As the intrigue and conflict that envelope Patwain become more evident you get pulled more and more into this world of Kings and concubines, fierce warriors and the pull and tug for power. Along the way, our heroes are helped and hindered by external forces that work against them as well as their refusal to accept their own destinies.

She has been many things in life; a wife, a mother, a salesperson, owned her landscaping business and raised horses, but her love of writing never waivered. Hurricane Katrina, a curse to many, changed her life. The business gone and family scattered, she moved to Alabama, then to the mountains of Georgia.

Her vivid imagination and love for fantasy has culminated into a story she hopes will captivate anyone who loves a good journey. Fracture The Secret Enemy Saga, started so many years ago was the beginning of the road. The Hunted is the continuing journey. Who knows where the road will end.
