A teaser on Book 2:
Summer of 1936. Assassinations are underway in Europe, targeting people with meta-abilities. It is an undercover German operation to deprive future targets like Poland and France of important Talents.
Now the killings have begun in England and they are young people, their bodies left in public places, ritually murdered. But how can the killer know which youngsters have Talents?
Kim Tavistock is sent to penetrate a religious cult tied to the Earth Mysteries movement, a cult that believes there are places of power linked to neolithic henges and stone circles. In the forbidding Sulcliffe Castle in Wales, the elderly matriarch of this movement is Baroness Ellesmere, an ardent Nazi, who, though dying, wants to confer spiritual power on her handsome but Talent-less son.
Kim is always on the side of the innocent, and she closes in on the killer, learning that he has a previously unknown Talent that makes him a frightening threat to England. Cut off from support and with the Secret Intelligence Service too late to the rescue, Kim must face off alone with the malevolence of the assassin and the denizens of Sulcliffe Castle. — Available April 10
KIRKUS REVIEWS on Serpent in the Heather:
Paranormal fantasy and historical fiction fans alike should find Kenyon’s saga featuring assassins, spies, and secret agents to be supremely entertaining. A unique concept that is superbly executed.

A fun evening at Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego Friday night. I talked about the forgotten women who played heroic roles undercover in WWII. Inspiring stories, surprising and at times devastating. Thanks to all who turned out! If you’re interested in this topic, see the category “Women Spies of the World Wars” in these posts.

“Women spies of World War II” will be my topic at Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego on January 19. I’m excited to talk about what has become my favorite topic: the women who inspired me to write At the Table of Wolves, the first book in my Dark Talents trilogy. (Featuring the women shown below and more.)
Check it out here! Mysterious Galaxy is one of my very favorite bookstores, and I’m so happy to be there on Friday. For those of you who’ve inquired, my cat Winston has declined to accompany me since he will be napping, but my husband Tom will be there–I know, a poor substitute for Winston fans. . . So who was my cat named after? Yup!
The sequel, Serpent in the Heather, is out April 10, and the trilogy concludes with Nest of the Monarch, coming soon!
