The Line by J.D. Horn
Expected publication: January 7th 2014 by 47North

Who would that old woman have accepted her death from? That’s the Question you need to be askin’.” Mother Jilo, The Line

An atmosphere of lies like that infects and poisons the whole life of a home. In a house like that, every breath that the children take is filled with the germs of evil.

HENRIK IBSEN, A Doll’s House

The allure of having unlimited access to power is too hard to resist. If Mercy Taylor had remembered that, had truly thought about it? Well, who knows what pain could have been diverted. What truths could have been uncovered. But when you are just about to turn twenty-one, and power has never been within your grasp, it is understandable, maybe even admirable, that the true brutalities of power are outside your comprehension. But given a bit of power, what will even the most innocent among us reach for? And given unlimited power, what atrocities might one commit in the name of that power?

Mercy Taylor is in that most uncomfortable of positions. A magical dud in a family of some of the most powerful witches in the world. Mercy is happy however, enjoying her life leading “The Liars Tour of Savannah,” getting her customers a little buzzed, telling ‘some black and wicked lies about the people of her hometown,” and basically enjoying her life. It’s simple, and it is all hers. Well, mostly happy, except for the fact that she is loved by a good man, yet loves the man who belongs to her twin sister – the twin sister who is in line to take a place as one of the ten who control The Line, the magical wall between this world and the others.

And so, Mercy makes a mistake. A mistake with the best of intentions, but with deep and unforeseen consequences. And yet – is the mistake really her own? Or is her mistake simply a smokescreen, misdirection for something much deeper and more twisted, betrayal upon shocking betrayal?

I received this book through Amazon’s “Kindle First” program. I get the opportunity to choose one of four books featured for free each month in advance of the release date. I love these opportunities to meet new and upcoming authors and get a peek at their books before anyone else. And, yes, the opportunity to brag about it, and to help a new author as much as possible to get the word out about their works. To be honest, this is one of the better “Kindle First” books I have read, and I am happy to have found this bright new author.
