Destiny’s Rebel is the first book in a trilogy of fantasy adventure novels: The series is listed as Teenage/Young Adult Fantasy, but is suitable for able readers from about the ages of 10 or 11 upwards – and adults enjoy them too!
The stories are set in an imaginary medieval world of castles and kingdoms, swords and sailing ships, gods and a sacred relic, as we accompany 17-year old Kat (Princess Katelin of Anestra) in her struggles to become Queen.
BOOK ONE: Destiny’s Rebel:
The ancient Crown of Anestra, lost and broken, is a sacred relic of the Divine, and plays a key role in the adventures of Princess Katelin, and in the story of Destiny’s Rebel.
Can you escape who you’re meant to be?
Kat never asked to be in line to be Queen. Eleven days until she comes of age and she feels suffocated. Bullied by her guardians and oppressed by expectation, Kat dreads the Coronation Day that will end her dreams of freedom and adventure. She refuses to surrender to her fate and runs away – straight into a different kind of trap.
Will Kat get back to Anestra in time to save her Kingdom from their enemies’ schemes? Can she accept the fate from which she flees? Can she, on this last quest, restore the lost and broken Crown of Anestra with its sacred powers as a relic of the Divine?
So, if you have a few minutes, grab a drink, sit back and relax, and allow me to read you some of Chapter One of Destiny’s Rebel:
