Kindred Rites: A Tale of Wild Magic

Night Calls: Book 2

Katharine Eliska Kimbriel

"...we are all Death's pupils, we practitioners--students of the great healer."

When magic broke free in my blood, I chose to follow our ancient family path and become a practitioner. I'm learning to heal, and to protect innocents. I dip into minds, stalk vampires, and set wards by the light of the moon. I can hear the children of the night calling.

But there are other families...and other paths. Families with twisted ambitions and frightening powers. On the frontier, folk whisper that one clan is the most dangerous of all.

Chief among those dark sorcerers is a man known as the Keeper of Souls.

And now he wants to keep mine.

Alfreda Sorensson has survived her first major test as a woman of power and returns to visit her family. No longer a child, she must now deal with a poltergeist infesting her family house and run for freedom when a handsome young man kidnaps her for his clan leader. Kindred Rites is a tale of powerful magic and compelling humanity, with a young heroine and an unusual historical setting.
