Emily's Trial

Natalie will be awarding one digital copy of "Emily's House" to a randomly drawn commenter at every stop, plus a Grand Prize of a $15 Amazon gift card + a digital copy of Emily's House will be awarded to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.


Two years ago, Emily Adams took a perilous journey, answered the hero’s call and became a modern Celtic Priestess. Armed with a magic dagger and powerful golden torc, she was entrusted with sacred magic and ancient wisdom.

But even a Priestess can know desire, feel temptation, and yearn for love. Will passion entice Emily to use the sacred magic entrusted to her in a forbidden way? Can new love take root in a world of nightmares? And will her friendships survive Emily’s Trial?

The Journey Continues . . .

Review by Elyah

Emily's Trial written by Natalie Wright was a very well written book. It flows well as a sequel to Emily’s House which I was fortunate enough to read. (Emily’s House is the first book in The Akasha Chronicles.) Even the first chapter has good parts like: levitating a bowl of salad above the head of a bully and just keeping it there to see what will happen.

Emily has just learned the power a human mind can have, and she tries to use her new found power to impress Owen, a "popular senior," and one of, if not the, hottest guy in school. Later, "The O" forces her to prove that she is "Miss Magic," and when she tries she unleashes Armageddon.

From Ch. 1:

The Apocalypse didn't start with four horsemen, harbingers of the horror to come. It didn't start with a plague, or pestilence, or even zombies rising from the dead.

It came slowly, and without warning. It crept up on people in the shadows, no more than a vague darkness that spread like an unseen cancer.

And it wasn't set into action by a divine hand. A teenage girl was the catalyst for the End Times.

I should know. I'm the one that started it.

I didn't plan to. I didn't want to start the End Times, and I'm not evil.

Madame Wong taught me to tell the truth, and so here it is. I'm the one responsible for the Apocalypse. And this is the story of how I unwittingly unlocked the door to the darkness; of how a Priestess of the Order of Brighid, entrusted with powerful magic that was supposed to be used for the benefit of all humankind, unleashed a force that would destroy it instead.

And it all began with desire.
