As you all know, there are few things that I love more than a good fantasy novel.
This is why when it became an option for me to join the collection of brilliant and talented authors who would be writing the various novellas for The Vampire Diaries: The Bennett Witch chronicles, I couldn’t say no.
To be fair, under no circumstances would I have said no even if it was an option.
The Bennett Witch Chronicles are a collaborative effort to expand upon a world that some of you should already know and love. There are plenty of individual novellas written by various authors, and I think it’s safe to say that we all had a lot of fun playing our part in this, and I think the results were great.
I’m really excited about this story and I’m thrilled that I get to share it with you all.
My novella, Temple of the Forgotten (formally The Vampire Diaries: Bennett Witch Chronicles – Temple of the Forgotten) is one I had a really great time writing. It focuses on the delightful Bonnie Bennett. Bonnie is a character that I had a lot of fun with, and I’m happy to have been given the opportunity to write part of her story.
This story follows this daring young witch on her journey as she continues to explore the world around her. Lately, Bonnie has been having some pretty strange dreams, and she can’t shake the feeling that there might be more to them than what she ate before bed.
Chasing her dreams, Bonnie finds herself on a trip to Simla in India where she meets the mysterious Manu, a young witch who has recently discovered her powers. Things are never that simple for Bonnie and it becomes apparent that Manu might need saving from herself.
Bonnie didn’t plan on teaching a young witch, but someone’s got to do it and it looks like it’s up to her.
And we aren’t even going to talk about the deep, disturbing darkness that has manifested as a terrifying creature that lies in wait, hidden away in a local temple.
Bonnie and I had a great time bringing this story to life, and I am certain that you’re going to love this short little window into her reality where she’s probably going to get into a lot of trouble.
You can get this Kindle Worlds published novella on amazon.com formatted for Kindle for $1.99 for the time being.
I can’t wait to hear everyone’s thoughts on this story, so please head on over and download it, and leave a review if you so desire.
Here are some of the reviews I received for my Novella:
November 7, 2017
“Your destinies are bound together in an un-linkable way and only the both of you have what it takes to save the world from certain damnation.”
November 8, 2017
This book starts off with an ominous dream where Bonnie Bennett encounters this little girl in need of help, and of course Bonnie being Bonnie haha immediately feels drawn to help out. So she travels to India where she realizes that there are supernatural elements at play and that she is the only one who can help out the people in this town.
I loved getting to catch up with Bonnie and we even see Damon and Elena as well, it seems like the story picks up after the series left off and I for one really appreciate that people really pushed for the what happens next aspect since to me the series finale seemed really rushed. (Or maybe it just seemed that way to me because I wasn’t quite ready to let it go yet.) but I think this is a perfect way to discover new authors and get more time with our favorite characters! This is the first one of this series that I picked up and I know I will be grabbing all of the others as well.
I think you guys are really going to love this one.
