Trinkets, Treasures, and Other Bloody Magic







Synopsis: Three months ago, I lost my foster sister, Sienna, to the darkness. As in blood magic and chaos and general mayhem. No one saw it until it was too late, but I should have. Now, I have a wounded heart and soul that I can’t even reveal to anyone around me, because I’m supposed to hate Sienna with the fiery passion of the justified. And I do. I just wish I didn’t feel so lost without her, so unsure of the path I thought I had carved for myself, and so outclassed by the powerful Adepts constantly by my side these days. I’m not even sure if they’re with me for my own protection or because my shiny new powers are rare and valuable. Assuming I ever figure out who or what I am, and how my magic actually works. Even chocolate can’t save the day every time … just most of the time. At least I’ve got that going for me.

Book Cover by Elizabeth Mackey

5 stars – Great sequel. I couldn’t put it down I’m really glad I found this author… but now I need to read the third book immediately… this one left my hungry for more, and hanging off my seat. – Amazon USA reviewer

5 stars – Funny, witty, charming main character. Clever writing, with sass and humor. Totally enjoyed this book so much, that once I was done, I immediately bought the others in the series. – Amazon USA reviewer

5 stars – Twists and turns. This book will keep you guessing! A great follow-up to the first book of the Dowser Series. If you read the first book, you will not be disappointed with this entertaining, attention- grabbing storyline. – Amazon USA reviewer

5 stars – Brilliant! I loved the first book, but this one adds dark magic and other elements (to say would give the game away!) to the exquisite mix of cupcakes, lust, witches, vampires and werewolves. I previously asked what more could you want? I found it! – Amazon UK reviewer

5 stars ­– Two words … freaking amazing. – Goodreads reviewer

      LOL, Catherine! I’m indeed getting a lot of “forget the stupid prerelease hype and giveaways, just publish the book!” feedback on this one. Currently writing #3! I love writing Jade.

    I just finished reading the second book in this series, Trinkets, and can not wait for the next one. Please do not make me wait too long. Do you have any idea when the next one will be coming?

      So glad you like the series, I love writing it, so that works out for both of us!! I’m halfway through the second draft of Treasures (Etc) aka Dowser 3. But by the time it goes through me (third draft), then the editor, then me again, and THEN the proof reader (etc) I think we are looking at a beginning of May release. MAYBE end of April if everything goes smoothly. With that said, the month before I releases a new book I often do eARC giveaways – one a week – here on the blog, so you might be able to get your hands on it even before it officially releases!!

      Thanks for reading and commenting here!

    That you so much for your quick answer. I will be looking and waiting for the release and maybe I can get one before the release. I do love your writing style and I can not wait to see how things work out.

      Hopefully I don’t disappoint!! Poor Jade, the third book is a bit of a rough ride for her tho. Ah, such is life. Sometimes I post teaser snippets here or on my facebook/twitter feed as well FYI. Maybe I’ll try to cobble something (unedited, of course) together for this Thursday, if not then next.

      So happy you found the Dowser Series!!

    Is there a piece about the Conclave that was in the Smashwords books 2 or 3 but not in the Amazon ones? Perhaps I’m getting Dowser confused with another series.

      All versions of books should be identical. I’m not sure what you are referring to specifically. The vampire conclave is referenced in all the books. ????
