Seattle Area Novelist, KateMarie Collins, author of Mark of the Successor, has reached bestseller on Amazon.
Published on May 14, 2013 by Solistice Publishing, Mark of the Successor is Collins’ newest novel, is available in eBook format as well.
Dominated and controlled by an abusive mother, Lily does what she can to enjoy fleeting moments of normality. When a break from school only provides the opportunity for more abuse at home, the sudden appearance of a stranger turns her world even bleaker. Disappearing without a trace, he has left a lingering fear in Lily. His parting words to her mother, “Have her ready to travel tomorrow,” is something her mind refuses to accept.
Running away is the only answer. But before Lily can execute her plan, a shimmering portal appears in her room. Along with two strangers who promise to help keep her safe. With time running out, she accepts their offer for escape and accompanies them into a brand new world. A world in which she is the kidnapped daughter of a Queen, and the heir to the throne of Tiadar.
Can she find her own strength to overcome both an abusive past and avoid those who would use her as a means to power?
Mark of the Successor has received countless positive reviews. One reviewer wrote, “I was lucky enough to read the first chapter of this book and it definitely contained a hook that made me want to read more. Now that I've read the entire novel, I must say that KateMarie really has created a novel that begins in the dark beginnings of Lily's abusive life and follows her as she finds a new world for herself in a world of magic and discovery. The world of Tiadar isn't all sunshine and lollypops however. Lily finds out that she is destined to lead her people, the people of Tiadar, but her leadership is fraught with a poisoned mixture of political intrigue, her naivete' and pure evil.
Once again, KateMarie has given us a well-crafted set of characters that a YA will care about, just as she did in Daughter of Hauk, her first novel. They are three dimensional characters who you will grow to care about.
This book is a page turner, not because it's a thriller with explosions and car chases...No, it's a page turner because you want to find out what's going to happen next with the characters you care about, and the desire for the evil ones to get their come-uppance.
