For all you fantasy readers out there, take a peek at Canadian author Lena Coakley’s debut novel Witchlanders, a compelling tale set in a richly rendered world of witches, magic, and mythology. It’s set to release August 30, 2011.
In this story, witches protect the Witchlands by throwing bones and foretelling the future. Ryder’s mom is one of them. Her early death left Ryder taking care of his sister and farm alone. But before her death, she claimed she has seen her last prophecy — an assassin across the mountains that Ryder must stop.
Follow Ryder on his fantastical journey to face a terrifying new magic that threatens both his village and the coven.
Witchlanders got a starred review from Kirkus Reviews!
Lena Coakley is in the midst of making an awesome trailer for Witchlanders. Be sure to read about the making of her trailer and other musings on her blog. By the way, did you know writing was the only course she ever failed (nothing was ever good enough to hand in!) in high school? But undeterred, she went on to study writing at Sarah Lawrence College.
