Bristol, May 2008. Louisa Keynes wakes up in a hospital room, after a car crash left her in a coma for ten months, only to find that everything has changed, her nights are now plagued by weird dreams, and magic does exist. Now able to bend Reality to her will using modern devices, she's determined to walk that path as far as she needs to in order to learn more about herself.

London, December 2009. Echoes and Ring investigate a series of gruesome murders. In St Pancras railway station, Marek Van Cartier is wreaking havoc, a sweet smile on his lips. On the platform at Tottenham Court Road, Lyle Karlowitz is staring at a heartless woman in a colourless world. From beyond a wall of thorns, the hand of death is about to curb the fates of thousands of people. And Louisa is riding the Northern Line, unknowingly rushing towards the encounter that will turn her life to shambles.

The whole physics, vectors, and calculations and such in your book ”Was” has got me confused. Could you please explain?

@LizzyLouLou Thank you. The original blurb was a bit longer, but I tried to rework it and keep it within boundaries. I'm glad it looks interesting. *smiles*

Even this brief blurb really sets the scene. I mean, you aren't giving anything away, yet it's still very immersive.

@JasonWride Thank you. :) It's all one big experiment for me, so I hope it'll prove a nice read.
