Katie McCory & Destiny's Diamond

 Hello ~
I have been working very hard on the second book in the McCory Chronicles. Here is a little sneak peek for all of my followers.

"Oh dear, oh dear. I'm afraid I have come too late."

            Katie had somehow managed to fall asleep while reading a book of banishing spells. The woman's voice that woke her was hauntingly lovely. It was filled with knowing yet wonder, all at the same time. Katie cautiously opened her eyes. Inside her head she recited one of her newly acquired hexes. She would not be taken by surprise again.

            The woman pacing at the foot of her bed was tall and thin. Her indigo hair was swept up into a mass of curls on the top of her head. Its beautiful blend of violet and midnight blue took Katie's breath away. A dazzling array of diamonds woven into the indigo curls sparkled like stars in a sky of midnight blue. The fairy's dress reminded Katie of the ancient robes of Greece. It was a slightly lighter shade of blue than her hair and wound loosely around her slender body. A black velvet pouch attached to a silver and diamond braid bounced on her hip. The fairy woman wrung her delicate ivory hands as she paced causing a cloud of diamond dust to float to the floor. 

            "I should have known he would send a Nipper to harvest the blood. I should have figured out sooner what his real plan was. Oh my, because of my neglect and carelessness many humans will suffer, and this dear girl most of all." The elegant woman dropped into an overstuffed chair in the corner of the room and started weeping.

            Katie slowly slipped out of bed. She didn't want to startle the distraught fairy, but she had to find out what she was rambling about and what she knew about the giant bug that had tried to get her blood. What had she called it? A Nipper? She was about to speak to the woman when a puff of brown smoke billowed up in front of her, sending her scurrying back under her sheets.

Update on The McCory Chronicles: Katie McCory and Destiny's Diamond

Hello! Sorry I haven't posted much on this page lately.
I am halfway through the first copies of Destiny's Diamond. Pan has been giving me a lot of trouble, but I stole his flute, so maybe he will behave now. Let's hope so if I am ever going to get this book done. He is such a bad boy. 

I will be checking back with you soon.
Until then don't forget to grab a book and have Fun If Fey!

Fairy Tale Games

 Hi! It is me Shasta! What has everyone been doing? I have been having a fun time in Fey,
dancing with the nymphs and flying to the moon with the moon fairies. While I was gone, I had a brilliant idea. I decided that it would be fun to test your knowledge of Fey, so every week I will be asking you a question about Fairies. It will be fun to see how much you know.
Okay, it is time to start our first game. This game is called Name the Fairy. The rules are simple. I will give you a clue and you will have to name the fairy. 
Here we go!

Clue: I lurk beneath bridges and demand a payment for passage. The Three Billy Goats Gruff gave me a lot of trouble one day. What am I?

New Review!

It's Me! Shasta. I've just found
A Wonderful Review for 
Katie McCory and the Dagger of Truth!

Katie McCory loves reading about fairies. While she and her brother Billy are visiting their Grandma for Halloween Katie discovers a mysterious chest. Later she, her brother, and their friends are taken to the magical world of Fey, home to all sorts of fairies. The fairy queen tells them that an evil fairy has gotten a hold of a powerful weapon and is turning it evil. Katie, Billy, and their friends must work together to recover the dagger and save the fairies from evil.
I've always loved fantasy and this book is a masterpiece. The story is well written and the plot is paced out nicely. Some might say there are too many fairies in one book, but this is hardly the surface of the world of fairies. There are a few punctuation errors but it's nothing to worry about. If you wanted to find a land as magical as Oz or Narnia, you will find it in Fey. C.L. Collar's knowledge of fairies, combined with her excellent storytelling, engaging characters, Christian parallels, and wonderful imagination, is giving rise to a new generation of fairy tales.
Some fairies and demons may be scary for young readers. Characters are in peril from evil fairies and dark magic.
We can overcome problems by putting aside our differences and working together. We can be kept safe from evil by listening to the Spirit and warnings from our parents. No matter who we are or what we've done, we can change and become better. The powers of darkness are no match against the things that are good. Good will always prevail over evil.
