Feature: Elyzian Chronicles, by D A Botta

Another feature is here! YAY!

This Sunday morning I’m here with a trilogy. Who doesn’t love series, right? I know I adore them and I can plainly admit that I choose to read mostly series. So I’m really happy to present you the Elyzian Chronicles, by D A Botta. He is a Twitter friend, a great writer and editor.

So, let’s dive into the story.


On her way to Salem State College, Emily Hobbs has a chance encounter with a fortune teller.  The tarot reading unfolds in a series of dramatic events that sets Emily on a collision course with destiny. 

Emily enters the realm of Elyzia as a witch.  Her powers quickly develop, out of necessity more than the tutelage at Cedalion Covenstead, as her life follows a preordained path of destruction and danger.

Emily struggles to find her way in a world in which greed and power, love and hate, loyalty and betrayal, even life and death conjure magic and ancient mysteries that Emily must contend with to fulfil her destiny.
