Innocence Lost (Ghostspeaker Chronicles Book 1)

$3.99

As the only child of a successful merchant, Johanna has her wits and a sense for business.

The royal family is in deep trouble: ever since the crown princess died of illness, the king has attempted to educate his son to become king. However, the prince is “not good in the head” and quite unsuited to the task. In his grief for his daughter, the king has run the coffers dry: he hired dubious magicians for even more dubious tasks. Those magicians circle like vultures waiting for the kingdom to fail. The king must get his son on the throne, preferably supported by a smart and well-off wife.

He holds a ball in his son’s honour. Johanna has agreed to a dance. But the guests include a number of magicians who are not there for the festivities.

Description

Innocence Lost is the first book in the six-part Ghostspeaker Chronicles.

It follows the story of Johanna Brouwer, headstrong daughter of a merchant, who wants to take over her father’s business.

Her father, concerned with her future, has brokered a dance with the crown prince at the prince’s ball.

Johanna is shocked. How can he ask her to do this? She overhears a conversation that the royal family is in trouble. Is her father really offering to bankroll them and offer her up as a sweetener?

She doesn’t want to dance. The prince is weird. He has a funny laugh and insults every young lady at the ball with his lewd remarks. She’s furious with her father.

Little does she know it might be the last time she sees him.

Fire demons crash into the ball room. Evil magic washes over the land.
