Book 1 of the Landers Saga

The odor of burning flesh and the screams of those condemned to the flames disturb the dreams of young Safire of Long Marsh. Safire struggles to keep the curse of her psychic abilities secret, lest she be burned at the stake as a witch in her native land Cormalen. Forced to keep her talents hidden instead of learning how to use them, Safire is ill-prepared to face the evil that awaits her. When she meets the rebellious Merius of Landers, a nobleman determined to escape his overbearing father’s influence, she finally finds someone who accepts her. But their romance interferes with court plots and family duty and ultimately leads Safire to confront the dark secrets of the House of Landers alone. What she finds there proves to be a test of her unusual gifts, a test that could free the soul of a haunted man–or end in her death.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I was fully satisfied when I finished, except that I did not have the next book ” Tapestry Lion ( Volume Two)” in hand to continue reading. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves Paranormal Romance with substance and depth. The Witch Awakening is a robust story that will leave you wanting more. I give it a worthy 5 stars!


The Witch Awakening is a great read. I can’t wait for the next in the series!


This is the most fun I’ve had from a book in months. Lively, intriguing, and suspenseful, The Witch Awakening kept me awake–a real page-turner!

This is a fantasy novel that even readers who don’t think they like fantasy can enjoy. Although the book is complete in itself, it does hold the promise of a sequel in the the ending. The author indicates this is the first of a series. I hope so. I anticipate a long, close friendship with Safire and Merius, Mordric and Eden.

About The Author

Karen is currently writing the final book in the Landers Saga, The Curious Fear of High and Lonely Places, due out in 2012.

Imagine you’re invited to a house you’ve never been to before. The host meets you at the door and escorts you to the living room, with its polished furnishings and the latest magazines scattered just so across the coffee table. You sink into the immaculate cushions of the couch and look around at the tasteful artwork on the walls. Everything is in its place, all the pictures hanging straight, not a speck of dust to be seen. If you’re like me, you wonder what’s through the darkened doorway off to the side, the doorway that leads to the rest of the house. Maybe you want to get up and poke around, find out what’s under the surface of perfection. Maybe you even want to sneak up to the attic or down to the cellar and let loose a few bats and skeletons to wreak havoc. If you’re shaking your head, that no, you would never do such terrible things, then quit reading now. My story won’t be your cup of tea. However, if you’re nodding, that yes, you don’t mind a few cobwebs and in fact, even enjoy the occasional bat, then please continue. You, dear reader, have a true taste for the gothic.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Karen Nilsen and ENT appreciate it.
