Family Ties & Thicker Than Blood: The Kinnear Chronicles, Books 1 & 2

"In a world not unlike our own, Alys Kinnear, a young mage on the way to becoming a full-fledged wizard, leaves her training behind to stand on her own for the first time. Taking a job in London brings her more adventure than she’d expected, even from the capital city of Albion.

When Alys finds herself implicated in a string of ghastly murders, her bonds with her new snow leopard familiars - Athena and Artemis - are tested, and the motives of Scotland Yard’s Detective Inspector Ben Donovan may not be as innocent as they appear.

As the pieces fall into place, everything she’s experienced begins to feel interconnected, leading Alys inexorably to a confrontation with a mysterious sorceress who seems to know more about her than she knows about herself."

This is a revised edition of the first two books in the series.

Available in all eBook formats at the BookBaby BookShop, for the Kindle (and Kindle Reading Apps) at Amazon.com, for iBooks on iPads and iPhones, and for the Nook through Barnes & Noble.

Family Ties: The Kinnear Chronicles, Book 1

"For Alys Kinnear, becoming a wizard was her life's ambition, but it's an ambition that might just cost her her life. Does a country girl from Éire have what it takes to handle the dangerous and inglorious realities that come with being a practitioner in the magic-infused modern day city of London?

She quickly finds herself confronted by street thugs trying to steal her new employer's property and a client whose home turns out to be a former asylum filled with the angry ghosts of former patients. With her new Familiars, a pair of snow leopards she rescued from an unscrupulous shop owner, Alys must overcome these and the more mundane day-to-day difficulties of studying to become a full-fledged Wizard.

Because before she expects it, she'll find herself tested in ways she never imagined."
