Victorian London: For five years, Charlotte (Charlie) Holloway has lived as a boy in the slums. But when one theft too many gets her arrested, her only means of escape lies with a dead man. Charlie hasn’t raised a spirit since she first discovered she could do so five years ago. That time, her father banished her. This time, she brings even more trouble upon herself.

People are now hunting Charlie all over London, but only one man succeeds in capturing her.

Lincoln Fitzroy is the mysterious head of a secret organization on the trail of a madman who needs a necromancer to control his newly “made” creatures. There was only one known necromancer in the world – Charlotte – but now there appears to be two. Lincoln captures the willful Charlie in the hopes the boy will lead him to Charlotte. But what happens when he discovers the boy is in fact the young woman he’s been searching for all along? And will she agree to work for the man who held her against her will, and for an organization she doesn’t trust?

Because Lincoln and his ministry might be just as dangerous as the madman they’re hunting.


Maggie Elizabeth Harrington

Maggie Elizabeth Harrington

Maggie Elizabeth Harrington was written by D.J. Swykert and first published in 2013. In is a coming of age story set in an American mining town in the 1800s. The focus of the story is the title character – a thirteen year old girl from a poor family – as she experiences her first love. The novel also has a sequel – Alpha Wolves (2013) – which follows Maggie into young adulthood.

Maggie Elizabeth has never had an easy life. Her mother died while giving birth to her and she now lives with a father who never speaks to her and a very stern grandmother. Preferring her dreams to real life, Maggie has grown very adept at retreating into her own world in order to escape the grim reality of her life.

When a bounty hunter kills a she-wolf on the outskirts of town, Maggie and her two friends – Tommie and Annie – decide to rear her orphaned pups until they can survive from themselves. This mission gives Maggie’s life a new purpose. She has never really understood why people slaughter animals for no reason when the Bible teaches them never to kill and now is her chance to save the lives of four beautiful creatures.

As they care for the wolves, Maggie grows closer to Tommie and decides that she wants to spend her life with him. When disaster strikes and the wolves are discovered, the two of them head off into the wilderness to ensure that the creatures are not destroyed. They know that they have to keep ahead of the search party at their heels at all times because if they are caught, the wolves will be killed and they will never be allowed to be together.
