Local author L.A. Nicholson asks,
“What would you do if the dark winds call,
pulling you down into mystery’s thrall?
Witches and warlocks, visions and wands.
Jump through a wormhole to worlds beyond.
Within my books’ pages, deep magick dwells
for those who dare to cast their first spells.”
The former Mayfair Games story author’s MAGICK trilogy sets teens Lincoln and Summer Page on a path of magical discovery of both their own abilities, and the secrets of an alternate dimension. Laurel will help witches and warlocks ease into the Hallowe’en spirit with Twizzler licorice wands, and other seasonal décor.
In The Awakening (book one of the MAGICK trilogy),teens Summer and Linc Page discover that their neighbor Jules Blakely is a witch and beg her to teach them the art of magick. Under Jules’ tutelage, they learn how to manipulate energy through spells and willpower, transforming reality and changing the material world around them. What starts out as an after-school adventure turns deadly when Jules is kidnapped by an evil Warlock from a parallel dimension. Armed only with the basic spells they have learned, Summer and Linc plan a desperate attempt to rescue their friend and teacher. Time is short and the price of failure is steep. To survive the rescue attempt, Summer and Linc will need every bit of skill, courage and cunning they can muster.
In Kiss of the Butterfly (book two of the MAGICK trilogy), Linc and Summer are willing to risk everything to rescue their magick teacher, Jules, who was kidnapped and buried alive in the Warlock’s victory wall. Linc is working undercover in the Warlock’s castle, secretly plotting a rebellion. Summer is desperately searching for a spell that will break apart the wall, while Jules is rapidly running out of air. Every day that passes, the dangers increase, the Warlock’s suspicions are aroused, and time is running out.
In Race for the StarWreath (book three of the MAGICK trilogy), the Warlock of Wintermire flees to the high snowy mountains of Craghorn Springs in search of the ancient and powerful StarWreath – a fabled crown leaving terror, death and destruction in its wake. Linc and Summer join a small group of warriors desperate to stop the Warlock from possessing the crown’s powers. They cannot fail or their own world is in danger of falling under the Warlock’s evil grasp.
