Circulus: Book 1 of the Tenebris Trilogy By Heather Nelson
Available on Amazon
Releasing simultaneously in eBook, Paperback, and Hardcover formats, Circulus is a modern take on Urban Fantasy that twists in a who-dun-it murder-mystery with the mythic lore of Druid and Gypsy magic’s. The unique combination proves to be a promising start to a new trilogy from an emerging independent author, Heather D. Nelson.
Circulus tells the story of Oneoff, the idyllic small town nestled in the forest amongst old-growth trees and ancient flora. Rich in history as a once-booming hub, this sleepy little hamlet has been withering in economic decay for over a decade. When Shayleigh Brogan blows into town with big plans to breathe new life into Oneoff, everyone is buzzing with excitement. Everyone that is, except for Lucas.
Lucas McCallen is the town’s stoic young sheriff. His entire life has been spent running from the mythic lore of his family’s haunted past. When the rumor mill churns with excitement, all his instincts scream resistance until Ms. Brogan stumbles onto an old crime scene and unleashes an evil entity.
His house of cards begins crumbling as he races to unravel the vile history of the town’s namesake with his own ancestors’ involvement. Only if he accepts his magical heritage, and releases his delusions of safety, will he be able to fight for what he loves.
He can’t run from his destiny forever… and the darkness is rising.
This 104,000-word novel is available on Amazon as of October 1st. Circulus is published as an independent novel but begins the Tenebris Trilogy. Book 2 is anticipated to release fall 2023.
