"Legend Unleashed" (Keeping Secrets, Book 1) by M. Latimer-Ridley
(Young Adult, Urban Fantasy genre)
Book trailer:…

When an infamous criminal is unleashed from his prison, it has consequences for everyone in Carwick. Temperance Levinthal in particular…

Temperance is satisfied with her ordinary life. Dealing with her eccentric, childlike parents is all the excitement she needs. That changes when Alastair Byron returns home.

After a failed matchmaking attempt by her father, sparks fly between her and Alastair-just not the good kind.

They are forced together though, when they are implicated in a grisly murder. Their search for the truth leads them to a secret world beneath Carwick, filled with werewolves, wizards and other magical faey.

However, uncovering the truth is far more dangerous than they’d ever imagined.

There are secrets within secrets.

Even Alastair may be more than he seems.

I know it's genre, but I do sometimes wish main charaters weren't all sweet and delicate looking...and I'd love for a guy to try to be mysterious with a name like John Smith :D

Hehe :laughing: yeah know what you mean, but part of the excitement is in the naming!!
Though, there definitely could be a story out there in the world somewhere for John Smith, Commander of Fallen Angels (or some such :D)!

I'm trying to talk a friend into it. (Probably no fallen angels, but perhaps a badass mage who still drives an early 90s ford.)

who is this being published by?

also, do you know of NaNoWriMo and will you be participating? (I never know anyone who's doing it so I can never share my woes at how hard it is to pound out a novel in a month)

Cranmer Publishing!
No we're not taking part in NaNoWriMo, too much on our plates at the moment, plus that kind of stress would be ulcer inducing! Haha :D Though definitely worth it if you ended up with a novel on December 1st! Let us know how you get on!!
