Initiation: The School of Exorcists (YA paranormal romance and adventure, Book 1)

Ruby Carmichael is your typical teenage girl, trying to ignore the unusual fact she sees ghosts. After she almost kills someone, she discovers she isn't so typical and has abilities and responsibilities she's never dreamed of.

After almost ending the life of her school crush at a dance, Ruby is humiliated and confused. She isn't prepared for the revelation that she's fated to join the School of Exorcists, a mysterious school that trains young Senders in the art of crossing over the undead and protecting the world from dark magic forces.

In this fast paced teen and YA paranormal romance and adventure series, Ruby meets Andreas, an undead member of the School, who introduces her to the weird and magically freaky world of the School of Exorcists.

There's also the issue of Jarrod Deveral, a handsome but dangerous magic using soul freezer, who lingers in Ruby's mind. With the romance heating up between Ruby and Zander, she can't ignore the issue that her birth parents are causing trouble by using dark magic.

But when Ruby and her new friends come under attack from dark magic, she must draw on her new found powers to save herself and the School she has grown to love.

Initiation, Book 1 in the School of Exorcists teen and YA paranormal romance and adventure series, features fast-paced action, romance, magic and mystery.

Q & A with the Author

Q - How would you describe The School of Exorcists series?

A - The School of Exorcists is a mix of teen and YA romance and adventure, sc-fi and fantasy, with lots of paranormal bumps along the way. I've always enjoyed reading books aimed at teens and young adults, especially coming of age series best sellers, they speak to my own inner teen, so you'll find lots of this throughout the series.

Q - Why did you want to write paranormal romance and adventure novels?

A - I love thinking about love and reimagining my own teenage years, making them much more exciting! This series has been ten years in the writing and Ruby Carmichael and her paranormal adventures and romance can now be released for others to immerse themselves into. I wanted to write young teen and young adult books that engaged and excited readers of all ages and I hope The School of Exorcists has achieved that.

Q - What does it mean to you when readers buy your books?

A - I get a huge smile on my face, it great to know people enjoy my writing. Paranormal romance and adventure books can get a bad rap, too much Twilight and not enough action, but I will always enjoy this type of writing, and if I never sell another book and the best seller list isn't for me, I will still write paranormal books because I love them. The School of Exorcists has so many stories to tell, lots of undead, plenty of ghosts and magic by the bucket load. The School is going to keep me busy for years, and I hope readers will enjoy this journey with me.

The Hill - Ben's Story (Book One): A Paranormal Murder Mystery Thriller

'The Hill reveals the world for what it is; a place where the impossible is real, and the dead speak with the living'

What if you were murdered? And what if by supernatural intervention you are given the chance to help the police find your killer? This is what happened to rookie police officer Ben Walker after he and his new girlfriend, Liz Mason became victims of a callous and brutal attack by Daniel Boyd, a grudge bearing drop out, and his gang.

Ben's body lay alongside Liz, who was unconscious and barely alive at the bottom of Mill Tut, a Bronze aged burial mound in the beautiful Badock's Wood in Bristol.

DCI Markland Garraway, who at the last moment is brought in to lead the investigation into Ben's murder has a reputation of being a maverick detective who thinks outside the box.

The mystical powers of the ancient burial mound begin to influence Garraway's attitude towards the case and soon he is alienated by his colleagues. Mill Tut, or The Hill as Garraway refers to it, opens up a Pandora's Box of supernatural happenings which infiltrate his waking and sleeping life, creating a host of mental demons which the Scottish detective must learn to deal with.

Daniel Boyd has fled Bristol to evade capture for the crime he has committed. To those who know him, he's vanished off the face of the earth. But can he escape the mystical powers of The Hill?

The power of The Hill does not only affect Garraway. It reaches out to many, including Christopher Jameson, who was born at the precise moment Ben's life ended.

The Hill reveals to Garraway and the others who are affected by its influence, the world for what it is; a place where the impossible is real, and the dead speak with the living.

What a fantastic book. I have been reading books for 50 +years and never ever have I come across anything like this one. I just had to keep reading and reading. The plot was unlike anything I have ever encountered. Very well thought out and even believable. I was constantly asking myself if the story could be based on truth it was so convincing. I find it hard to believe this was the author's first book.

Sarah's Ghost: Part One: Heaven is Waiting

SARAH'S GHOST:

Ray Pearlman is a successful lawyer, who has just been told that his wife (Sarah) is expecting a baby. This is fantastic news, as they have been trying without success for years. Unfortunately, on the day this news is revealed, Sarah is also run over and killed by a car.

Ray struggles to continue with his life, but he endures constant visions of his dead wife. The barriers between fantasy and reality soon break apart, and Ray battles both the natural and supernatural in a final showdown.

SARAH'S GHOST is a supernatural thriller that will make you laugh, cry, and reel in shock. It contains terrifying suspense and multiple twists.

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR

Q: Sarah's Ghost (Part One: Heaven is Waiting) is your first novel. What's the book about?

The story is about a man called Ray trying to come to terms with the loss of his wife (Sarah), after she is killed in a brutal accident. But Sarah isn't gone for long, because she returns to haunt him. Ray has no idea if what he is seeing is real, and so he enlists the help of various friends and other professionals to determine the truth. But everything is not what it seems... and if you want to find out more, you'll have to read the book!

Q: Who is the book for?

I call this book a supernatural thriller, rather than just a true horror story. Readers of thrillers and horror stories will both like this. It will also appeal to romance readers, because the love story between Ray and Sarah is so strong (and ultimately unbreakable). This book could be called a cross between The Sixth Sense and Ghost. If you like those movies, then you're going to love this book.

Q: What will the reader get out of this book?

Sarah's Ghost starts off as a contemporary adult drama/romance, which has a great sense of humour. It then serves up a helping of tragedy, which later introduces a paranormal/supernatural element. It is a scary, suspenseful and thrilling read that ultimately leaves you with an unusually satisfying (happy) ending.

Q: Are there any twists?

Of course! I managed to stick in a few jaw-dropping twists and turns that will hopefully stun the readers. Obviously, I can't reveal them here.

Q: What's next?

SARAH'S GHOST (Part Two: Hell on Earth) and SARAH'S GHOST (Part Three: Battle of the Gods) are on the way. I've almost finished the first book in a new psychological thriller series called A FRAGILE MIND. I have no shortage of ideas!

Q: How can readers contact you?

My website will shortly be finished. It can be found at benkavaliro.com. I have FREE book offers and links to new books, etc.

What Readers are saying

Lowe writes an amazing powerful, suspenseful and captivating story that draws the reader in from page one. There is so much tied up in this unique tale from paranormal, demons, supernatural and so much more.CC

A spine tingling read, author Wesley Robert Lowe successfully merges the supernatural, history, and culture of China together into an intelligible paranormal thriller series. The writing is articulate, the characters are remarkable, and the story takes off with horrific intensity and continually builds a web of paranormal imbued mystery that kept me riveted to the book.

Lowe's book is a great addition to the paranormal thriller/urban fantasy genre, and readers who are tired of the same old/same old Western supernatural tropes will be delighted by the way the Chinese lore has been woven into the tale, along with a lot of twists and turns. KT
