Congratulations to my friend and fellow author JP McLean on launching Secret Sky, the first installment in her Gift Legacy. It’s available on Amazon (.com, .ca, .uk…) and other major e-book sellers for a promo price that is less than a “medium regular” at Tim Hortons.
This exciting and beautifully written story could be a lovely present for someone who likes this genre. Amazon has a super-easy gift option. The “Give as a Gift” button is on your right hand side, below the orange “Buy It” button. You can e-mail it to the recipient.
As a child, Emelynn Taylor accepted a stranger’s gift that changed her life forever. This gift wasn’t wrapped in pretty paper and tied with a bow, nor could it ever be returned. Now, it’s taken over her life. Striking without warning, it strips Emelynn of gravity and sends her airborne, unchecked.
Haunted by terrifying flights she can’t control, Emelynn returns to the seaside cottage of her childhood, where she vows to take command of her dangerous gift. Here, she discovers an underground society whose members share her hidden ability, and a man who sends her heart soaring.
But is this secret society using the gift for good, or for evil? Unravelling the truth will plunge Emelynn into a fight for her freedom—and her life.
The first book in The Gift Legacy series, Secret Sky is a thriller that skirts the edges of reality in a world within our own. Buckle up and escape the ordinary: take flight with Emelynn Taylor.”
I reviewed the whole series, and gave each book five stars. Here is a excerpt from my review:
The Gift Legacy is one of the best fantasy series I’ve ever read.
JP Mclean’s four novels – Awakening, Redemption, Revelation and Penance – are one beautiful, extremely satisfying journey into a world hidden within our own. Part fantasy, part thriller, the series shines with a distinctive light: the world that comes out of JP McLean’s wonderful imagination is not only original but also real to the point that it’s hard to think that it is not a part of our reality. This juxtaposition of something so highly phantasmagorical and so authentic is simply irresistible.
The Gift Legacy is an addictive read. I finished the first book, “Awakening” in four days, happy that there were three more books. By the time I started book two, I was in love with the story and its characters. Within a week I read the four novels and started experiencing the full spectrum of fiction withdrawal symptoms…
