Fiction

Ashley Mackintosh is living the perfect life---a great job, a long-term relationship, and a nice house. Her world suddenly changes with a mysterious invitation from her Aunt Judith, an aunt she hasn’t seen since her father’s death. She knows nothing about her father’s family, and now she is, unwittingly, being drawn into a world of “immortals.” A journey beckons that only she can take. In a world of mystical truth, the spirits of those that were sacrificed slowly invade her mind. Judith is desperate to bring her niece back into the Mackintosh realm, and the invitation is their only hope to ensure her cooperation. Ashley is about to inherit a fortune, but there’s a catch---she must go to her aunt’s and take part in a type of Celtic ritual. Ashley must decide between the life she has now, or a life of riches and immortality. When the truth is discovered, Ashley is forced to cross the line between good and evil. A power play between the forces of the universe ensues. A web of intrigue, forged before time itself, traps Ashley in the ancient ways of the Druids, and in a battle with the forces of evil that yearn for her very soul.

Excerpt

“I fell into a restless sleep and immediately began to dream. Somewhere, a long time ago, a deal had been made. The faces in the dream looked familiar, but the black shape hovering over them emitted a force of pure evil. I wasn’t afraid and quietly watched as a dagger was plunged into David’s chest. My hands were holding the bloody knife. I woke up in a sweat, with my heart pounding…”



Professional Reviews

Auntie
“Ashley Mackintosh was living a perfect life. She had a great career, a beautiful house, and the boyfriend of her dreams. Little did Ashley know that an unexpected invitation from her long lost Aunt Judith would change her life. Ashley finds herself confused as a whole new world is opened up to her as she realizes that her father’s family are all Druids who through an act of trickery serve the dark master.
Auntie is a dark story that illustrates the fine line between survival and imprisonment as well as good versus evil. As in real life, these lines are often blurred and difficult to define, especially when our own survival is on the line. This story is also about trust. Trust in our own decisions. Trust in what we feel is right. Trust in ourselves to make the “right” choice.
As I started reading this book, I expected this story to show a negative point of view of Druids, a very typical “witch, witch” reaction. However, I was surprised that the good versus evil aspect was directed not at the belief system itself but at the choices of those practicing these beliefs.” Tami Brady, TCM Reviews
