The Cimurata
Persephane Pendrake Chronicles Book 1
by Lady Ellen
YA Urban Fantasy

A young 13-year-old witch and wizard. A quest for 9 Magical Objects -
Winner Takes All. An evil sorceress, determined to beat them and rule the planet. 

Enter a magical world of mystery and wonder, where fantasy reigns supreme
and casual chatter sparkles green. Meet Persephane (or Persy as she
prefers), Thaddeus, Benson and P-C as they embark on their enchanted
adventures to thwart the evil, black witch Melanthios...

Push the outer boundaries of your imagination into a world where Persy (a
very talented almost 13 year old witch, magic her 'modus operandi')
and her close friend Thaddeus (a 13 year old wizard) with their
familiars –Benson (a very cheeky dragonfly) and P-C (a far from
brave dragon) pit magic, bravery, skill and allegiances from a swarm
of magical creatures against the tall, dark and malevolent
Melanthios. "Best new fantasy series books" one reader claims….

Follow them as they wind through periods in time, to discover ancient magic
from cultures all throughout the history of the world in this best
fantasy book in a long time.

Success for Melanthios means that the entirety of this planet will fall under
her control. Our world will become dark, bleak, cold and lorded over
by her demons – forever.

Pull up a chair, sit back, and join them in their quest as Persy and her
friends race against fate and time, to stop Melanthios from her evil
plot to collect nine mystical objects of power scattered throughout
the world to become the –All Powerful One.–

Persy, Thaddeus, Benson and P-C are assisted by a highly adept, scrying
gypsy named Vadoma, a vampire with a rather warped sense of humor -
Count Pseudomorphius the Sanguine who is known as Murph...for obvious reasons.

Not to be forgotten is the twelve member Magical Governing Council, which
Persy's grandmother Laurel is one of the lead members. Each member
specializes in a particular area of magic and all have a gift to give
our heroes to further enhance their chances against Melanthios.

But is it enough? Melanthios is evil and heartless....and VERY powerful...

As if she isn't enough to worry about...also on the dark side is a
slippery, loathsome Chinese Sorcerer...aiming to usurp Melanthios and
beat her at her own game..and along the way...dispose of Persy and her crew!

Will this ever end? What chance does our team stand? You'll see...

The Cauldron of Ceridwen
Persephane Pendrake Chronicles Book 2

Krak Ling’s Ring calls to Persy and she, Thad, Benson and P-C rush into
an unauthorized trip to retrieve it, narrowly missing being killed by
guards, when P-C unleashes a power no one knew he possessed or could use, even him.

As expected, Krak Ling hunts them down to take his ring back, but in the
negotiations, he reveals the next Magic Object which Melanthios is
about to attempt to capture…The Cauldron of Ceridwen. Why this
cauldron? The best person to explain that is Lady Druanna, the
resident authority on all things Celtic Magic.

They make their way to Killarney, an area in Ireland, where Lady Druanna's
manor is located and there she tells them the tale of The Cauldron.
It's not the vessel which is so important to all Magicals but the
first three drops of the Brew it creates. But their visit to Lady
Dru's is violently interrupted, resulting in severe injury to the
Lady and the kidnapping of Thaddeus by the malevolent Melanthios.

Persy is beside herself with grief and worry, both for the survival of Lady
Druanna and the whereabouts and safety of Thad.

And so her journey begins. Of course, things get worse…much worse
before even the haze of a solution appears:

- Persy has lost he comrade in arms and so much face this quest

- She ultimately finds out that Thad has been tossed into a multiverse.
Where? When? Can she ever get him back?

- There is another Dark organization, supporting Melanthios in her evil quest.
- Someone at school has found out who and what she is and is trying to
expose her. Good-bye privacy and Hello World Lab Rat!

- There is someone who Persy always believed to be a mundane…normal
human who is about to 'come out' as a Magical. Who knew?

- Romance sparks from unexpected corners

Who will possess Magical Object 2 at the end of this tantalizing
escapade? The only way to find out is to read: The Persephane
Pendrake Chronicles - Two- The Cauldron of Ceridwen.

Lapis Draconis
Persephane Pendrake Chronicles Book 3

A powerful magical stone embedded in the tooth of a Fire Dragon. Being
tossed into a Multiverse. All before starting college at The Illuminary Incantorium.

Persephane, Thaddeus, Rix, Sniv and Darson are on the trail of the third Magical
Object - The Lapis Draconis. The malicious Melanthios is calling up
Demon help to capture the stone before they do. And death. Death
comes too soon to one of them. Who?

The fast-paced, no-holds-barred quest continues in Book 3 - Lapis
Draconis. Get Your Copy Now!


What is something unique/quirky about you?

Quirky should be my middle name. I break every rule in the book when it comes to how I live life. I home birthed and home schooled my two kids, was an alternative health practitioner for over three decades, spend 90% of my time alone, working on my books and fantasy art and love every minute. 

Why do you use the author name ‘Lady Ellen’?

I was a Chiropractor/homeopath/Functional Medicine practitioner all my professional life.  For whatever reason, many of my patients were devout Christians and they often are not fond of witch/wizard, magic stories.  So I needed to separate the two parts of me.  My kids came up with the pen name. My middle name is Ellen.

What are your pet peeves?

Injustice, number one. Picking on or bullying those who can’t defend themselves. Animals and children are the worst victims for me. They are helpless in our society and need 100% support from all of us in my way of thinking.

What are you passionate about these days?

Clean organic food, NO GMO’s. The end to corporate greed in agriculture and our forests.  Should be available to all.  A few generations ago, all food was raised safely. We need to get back to that.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

January 2007, when I wrote the first three chapters of Book One - The Cimaruta.  I’d put a pie in the oven and sat down at my computer and it poured out.  I’d been thinking about the story for a couple of months and the fact there would be nine books. But that day, I knew it was time to start. So I did. I sent it to the kids and they came back, “Where’s the rest?” And a writer was born. Oh, and I burned that poor pie.

Which of your novels can you imagine being made into a movie?

Book Three - Lapis Draconis. By the time that book was done, there was substantial background on Persy and her allies and now they were at the Illuminary Incantorium, their magical college. This is when the real action and magic starts, under the guidance of the masters and professors here. Also, Carnifex the dragon is now part of the story.

Do you believe in magic?

Absolutely. It’s simply another energy field and can be manipulated with work and practice.

Weaving and scribing of the eight remaining tomes continues in Lady Ellen's
remote witch's hut…on her tiny piece of Ontario's Cambrian Shield"
…and indeed that's where the series began.

After more than 3 decades as an alternative health care practitioner, I
finally managed to start devoting some serious time to my secret
love--fantasy fiction.

I've always loved fantasy, magic and mythical kingdoms.  We
home-schooled our kids and lived on a 100 acre farm..which had about
twenty-five acres in forest.

We'd make up stories and adventures..lots of fairies, witches, wizards, etc. 

Now, all these years later, I've started on my nine-book, three trilogy
magical series...The Persephane Pendrake Chronicles and have released
Books 1, 2 and 3... The Cimaruta, The Cauldron of Ceridwen and Lapis Draconis.
