Here at Reign Publishing, we are thrilled to add another author to our publishing house. The award-winning author, Karri Thompson, will be publishing her brand new fantasy series with us. Before we get to her exciting new book, let me share a little bit about the talented author. Karri Thompson, a native of San Diego, attended San Diego State University where she earned her bachelor’s degree in English and master’s degree in education. When she’s not writing novels and teaching high school English, she can be found nerding out at San Diego Comic-Con and cooking delicious meals for her family. Karri is the recipient of the San Diego Book Awards Best Published Young Adult Novel for 2014.
The Grove will be releasing September 21, 2021. It is the first book in The Legend of Tena series. Here’s what it’s about:
Entering the woods is forbidden. To go in can mean a fate worse than death. At least that’s what seventeen-year-old Laura has been told. But living in a new town with nothing to do, she ignores her mother’s dire warnings and explores the forest near her home.
The trees entice Laura deeper into the woods. A captivating, soothing voice calls her name, and she becomes lost. When a young man finds her, she thinks she’s saved. He introduces her to the Grove, a secret world of magic and mystery, and insists their meeting is more than a coincidence. For centuries, his colony has been waiting for a savior. With his alluring eyes and gentle smile, Laura almost believes his crazy story.
Caught between worlds, and with her life at stake, she doesn’t know who to believe or trust. Her heart tells her one thing and her head another.
Will following her destiny lead to peace, or will it only postpone the inevitable?
The book is now available for pre-order! Make sure to grab your copy because this is a story you won’t want to miss!
