THE MEADOWSWEET CHRONICLES by KATIE M. JOHN
A modern tale of witchcraft.
October marks the first year anniversary of the release Katie M John’s ‘Witchcraft’, book one of The Meadowsweet Chronicles.
The Meadowsweet Chronicles is an upper YA / cross-over, seven book series; blending together traditional English Folklore and the American Gothic. An epic scale, dark adventure with paranormal romance elements, The Meadowsweet Chronicles takes the reader to the heart of a sleepy English village, to the Witch Markets of Mexico, to Salem in the U.S.A and to the island of Haaiti.
Heargton is an ancient English village, settled on the intersection of powerful and magical lay lines. For as long as anyone can remember, it has been steeped in the occult and pagan rituals, becoming a magnet for modern day paranormal investigators and tourists. However, behind the folklore is a dark and powerful truth.
It is the year 2015 and a local college girl is found ritualistically murdered and displayed right at the very heart of the village. Her murder ignites deep rooted prejudices and village rivalries. The Meadowsweet sisters, long known to follow the ‘old ways’, come under increasing suspicion, but it isn’t until a young child is kidnapped that they really begin to understand the role they have to play and the powers they possess.
It is during these fearful times that Jeremiah Chase arrives from New York. Heir to the Chase Family fortune, he is an exiled errant playboy sent to his Aunt, Lady Penelope Asquithe, Misstress of Cold Stone House. Only Jeremiah soon discovers the Chase family, despite coming from a line of infamous Witch Hunters, has been hiding its own evil and nefarious history.
“In this highly charged, action packed, classic style occult horror series, Katie M John builds a world and characters that are truly dark and magical.”
