Born and raised in California, Rachel DeFriez wandered about Europe a bit before graduating Summa Cum Laude from B.Y.U. where she studied French and English. She taught both subjects in high school until she and her husband, Curt, took up the extreme sport of raising four children. Once her youngest was old enough to watch PBS for an hour or so a day, Rachel sneaked in a few hours to write her first novel, A Shadow of Light. When the kids were all in school, she followed it with a sequel, Out of Annwyn, which she wrote in between teaching French classes in Massachusetts. She has written several articles, two of which appear in the award-winning e-anthology “Inside Scoop.” She’s a very engaging and inspiring speaker in schools and writers’ workshops. Currently, Rachel serves on the board of directors of the Writers’ Guild of Texas and teaches high school French
WHERE THE REALM OF THE TUATHA DE DANAAN ENDS, THE RATH HAVEN CHRONICLES BEGIN.
Where do they come from, the makers of legend, those larger than life leaders of men like Alexander the Great, Arthur, Caesar and Napoleon?
Jane Weston only wanted to save her best and only friend Margaret from Russell's merciless teasing. But dabbling in the dark Tuathan magic isn't the way to go. The dark magic is tricky--you get what you want quickly, but lose what you love. In the balance of the magic, every plan has a price. Jane's trip to the Forest of Souls in Book 1 saved her Grandmother Ounatha, but it also kindled Maeve's vengeance. The Dark Princess conjured up terror in the Forest of Souls and sent the demon Balor to stalk the woods of Rath Haven. Jane is going to need some help, and not just from Jack, who's learned a little too late some of the pitfalls surrounding his own Averien powers. He had no idea an innocent first kiss could get him into so much trouble. This time, the price of the magic to set things right may be more than Jane and Jack are willing to pay.
Ulrich O’Connor, alchemist, has learned the price of living beyond his years. His fountain of youth is fast running dry. To keep his life flowing through the centuries, he needs the soul crystal of the girl he loves—a girl he hasn’t even met yet—Jane Weston.
Jane has just come of age and stepped into her blossoming druid powers. She’s a well-meaning healer with an unfortunate knack for aggravating whatever she sets out to fix. She has no concept of balance. She’s landed her best friend’s soul in the Celtic underworld and her brother in a nasty mess; he’s killing his girlfriend—one kiss at a time.
In true Jane style, she has a plan to fix it all. She’s hot on the trail of Ulrich O’Connor, the only man alive who can help her. As usual, she has no idea what she’s getting into.
