Brimstone was first published in 2010, in paperback and ebook, by the author under the imprint Sibling Press.
The book has been well-received by both critics and readers. Now, with the second book in the series (Hourglass) almost ready for publication, I thought it worthwhile to venture on to Wattpad with Brimstone. At the very least, I could learn from the responses of a dedicated army of readers here; things that could help me fine-tune Hourglass.
Brimstone is fantasy only in the way all fiction is fantasy. It isn't a book about witches, wizards and warlocks; there are no elves, ogres or trolls; there is no magic, except the magic of storytelling and the magic of finding a main character who is intelligent, resilient, feisty and brave and who experiences for herself a more personal magic: the magic of discovering what she truly is.
But Brimstone is, first and foremost, a great adventure and action story, with an array of memorable characters, both heroes and villains.
If you have read this far, I hope you are interested enough to read Jenny's tale. And having done that, I hope you are sufficiently taken with her story to discuss it with me and the others in this reading community.
Now, a short hint of what you'll find in Brimstone:
One day can change a life forever …
Jenny Swift doesn’t feel special. But she is. Which is why, not long before her 15th birthday, she finds herself taken from her home by a great alchemist. To become his apprentice. A young girl. An outsider. A nobody - who is destined to become a very great somebody - if she survives the murder, deceit and and betrayal in her new home.
