The Afterland Chronicles series:
Ascension of the Whyte
book 2 - tba

Sara Carson did not believe in life after death, Heaven, Hell or even reincarnation. However, what she didn't know was that some of us are special. For some of us, death is just the beginning of our next great adventure.

Sara Carson was one of those special people, and her most incredible journey did not begin, until the day she died.

A magical début novel that will leave you breathless.

My two-bits:

Good start to this fantasy series.

This first book in a series establishes the world and its characters in a magical infused setting.

I liked how the main characters were presented as a team and worked together rather than one hero being highlighted.

As there are a lot of characters in this story, Karen's guest post about the main characters here was a very helpful guide.

It will be interesting to see how each one develops and hone their skills in the next installment.

In general, it was interesting to think of this life after death scenario.

About the author:
Karen Wrighton was born in a small town in the English county of Staffordshire and began writing prolifically and drawing from a young age. Karen trained as a Psychologist and Teacher before finally finding the time to pursue her love of writing, firstly by creating a successful Psychology blog and now by writing her first novel.

Karen's début novel 'Ascension of the Whyte' is a magical epic fantasy novel for young adults and is to be the first book of the 'The Afterland Chronicles' series.

Karen's style is strongly influenced by the books she loves to read, such as Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. This is evidenced by the magical quality that pervades her writing.

Karen has two daughters and lives in Norfolk, England with her husband John.
