Chloe Shipton & The Quill of LeFay Excerpt & GiveawayI jumped at the sound and looked around the small room. There was a wooden clerical desk and matching chair that dominated the space. I scanned over the shelves of books lining the edges of the room and took in the comfy looking baby blue love seat sitting on wooden clawed lion’s paws. Like the rest of the third floor, no wall mounted windows were in this room. I noticed as I glanced around, that this room was larger than the rest. Another thing which differed from the other spaces on this floor was that this space wasn’t lit by skylights. Instead, there was a wrought iron chandelier which hung from the middle of the ceiling and held many enchanted, long, white, tapered candles. So the fact that someone might be able to see me was not surprising. However, that wasn’t what snagged my attention the most. Someone had heard me! I let my eyes roam around, but the room still appeared to be empty.
“This isn’t funny, show yourself,” I said already tired of the game.
“Alright, alright, there’s no need to shout, I was just having a bit of fun, but all joking aside you shouldn’t be in here,” The voice said again.
On the baby blue sofa, the owner of the voice materialized. He lounged in his seat as if all was right and good in his little world. He didn’t wear a uniform, which meant he wasn’t a student, but he wasn’t a Master Instructor either. As I examined him, I took in small details you had to look for to see. There was the slight pointedness of the ears, the perfectly symmetrical, almost whimsically handsome face, the violet eyes, the ridiculous air of confidence, and the taller than average height. Then the attractive young man smiled revealing slightly elongated eye teeth, and I knew for sure.
“You’re a Faerie, aren’t you,” I said casually.
About the Book
Chloe Shipton & The Quill of LeFay by Lynn Veeverson June 12th 2018
When fifteen-year-old Chloe mysteriously disappears, the rumors at Grammaire Hall point to murder, but spiritual entrapment isn’t the same as dead. In a library that’s believed to be nothing more than a myth, Chloe's spirit is separated from her body after witnessing another student's murder. Try as she may she can't remember what happened to her before she woke up as a spirit in the campus graveyard. As Chloe uncovers clues leading to the mythical library's location and her body, a secret the Magical Parliament doesn't want to get out, starts to unravel. Rogue sorcerers have infiltrated the school, intent on reinstating the Third Edict, and sorcery students are dying because of it. Destroyed long ago for horrific crimes against humanity, the return of the Third Edict would spell disaster for both magical and magicless societies. To prevent her own demise and the fulfillment of the Third Edict’s return, Chloe must find a way to reunite body and soul without giving the rogue sorcerers the weapon they need to succeed, a weapon only Chloe can activate.
