Talion

A chilling portrayal of fifteenth century England. Out of the dark ages comes the uninhibited story of a young woman's struggles. It is the story of Darkess. A twin disowned at birth by her father, a wealthy knight.

Spirited away as an infant to be raised by peasants, she has a loveless and abusive childhood. When grown she seeks revenge and suffers betrayal. Vowing to regain her postion and all the wealth owing she uses the skill of a witch and cunning deception. Aided by a secret passage and stalked by an apparition, Darkess desperately seeks to claim her birthright.   

Talion is now available on e-books, Amazon Kindle and the new ipad.       


Excerpt

He pressed hard with his body on hers and pain shot in one of her breasts. Hugh gripped the sides of her head and held it. His open mouth covered hers and his wet tongue forced between her lips. Darkess clenched her teeth and pounded him with her fists squeezed tight. Hugh, unfazed by the blows, tried to force her teeth open.

Darkess grabbed his hair with both hands pulling, exerting every ounce of strength in her. His head angled back releasing her mouth. She gave short jerks with his thick mass in her hands. He moaned and demanded she let go.



Professional Reviews

Reader L. Millan
Captivating. Outstanding characters. The author makes medieval times come alive and brings them into reality.

Wichita Eagle
Another fast paced compelling suspense by Karen Stokes. A true page turner that can't be put down. A plot out of the ordinary tropes of the genre destined to be a best seller.

Author Joy Everett
Interesting twist, Stokes propels the reader into the fifteenth century and guides you through a troubled life. Darkess struggles to obtain what she deperately believes is her right leaving no one standing who gets in her way. Well worth reading again and again.
