The Crucible Book 3 Synopsis
Well, I’ve been trying to finish this synopsis for quite a while now, and though I may end up tweaking it in the future, I am essentially done! So here’s the “official” announcement of Book 3, Strange Brew.
Feeling out of touch with her magical gifts, Aislinn Carmichael is a witch seeking a means of restoring her ability to its fullest potential. Despite the warnings of family and friends, the endeavor inevitably drives her to accept the initiation trial of a witch coven called The Trine.
Their test demands the capture of a supernatural creature, a task Aislinn has little doubt she can accomplish with relative ease. But of all the potentially benign creatures she could’ve snared, none other than a feral werewolf stumbles into her trap. Making matters worse is The Trine’s intentions for her dangerous captive, forcing Aislinn to release him and potentially risk retaliation.
But vengeance is the farthest thing from the werewolf’s mind.
Troy Ashland is a werewolf standing at death’s door, slowly losing his humanity until there’s nothing left but savage instincts. It’s a process all werewolves face, and the only thing that can appease his restless beast is his mate. So when word arrives from an oracle saying to travel to the Southern US to find her, he’s on the next flight out.
After his arrival in Arkin City, the last thing Troy expects is to be caught in a magical trap. But all is forgiven with one glimpse of his temporary jailor, who turns out to be the very woman he was searching for. Still, the task of winning her is surprisingly difficult. Not only is Aislinn inexplicably resisting their attraction, but The Trine won’t leave well enough alone …
I think I mentioned in my last post that this book will take us back to Arkin City and alluded to witches being a focus, but I can’t quite remember. In either case, with witches and werewolves being two of my favorite supernatural creatures, having the chance to combine them together in a story has been a ton of fun! So work is going smoothly, but I can’t promise a release date, and can only say that I’m hoping to publish in the early fall of this year!
