Mystic Seer cover


When a procession of knights returning from the Crusades passes through her village, the last thing 16 year old Anabel expects is that her father will sell her and her brother to one of the knights and his mysterious companion. Anabel is thrust into life at court and agrees to use her special gift to spy on the handsome new king in the weeks leading up to his coronation.

When Anabel’s visions of the future become more frequent and vivid, she learns that she and her brother are at the center of a dangerous plot — one that puts them both in danger and threatens to alter the course of her nation’s future.

As she is growing ever closer to King Fabian, all Anabel wants is for those she loves to be safe. But soon, the reality of her situation comes crashing down on her, and her life is altered once again. The power she is learning to harness is growing inside her and soon, everything she loves will be in danger.


Another servant brought in our lunch on a tray, and I was walking back toward the sitting room to eat when a wave of dizziness overwhelmed me. I recognized the familiar feeling of being outside my body and fought to stop it from happening. The idea of having one of my spells in front of Lucia and the maids in this unfamiliar place was horrifying.

Despite my efforts to avoid it, I dropped to my knees on the floor, holding my head in my hands, and heard Lucia as if from far away.

“What are you doing? Father! Something is wrong with her. What is going on?”

Though I tried my best, I could not stop the vision from coming.

Alone in a luxurious sitting room, I hummed softly to myself while I placed dirty dishes and the remains of a half-eaten meal on a silver platter. When the table was clean, I picked up the heavy platter and left the room, pulling the door closed behind me.

I headed down a dim, narrow, and twisting stairway. After only a few steps, a rat dashed out in front of me and I stumbled. I dropped the tray, trying to catch my balance. Dishes shattered around me. Unable to stop my fall, I tumbled down the stairs for what seemed a very long time, though it was probably only seconds. I landed heavily on the landing at the bottom, my arm twisted painfully beneath me, my back on fire with pain, and lost consciousness.

When I emerged from the vision, Lord Philip was kneeling over me looking alarmed and also slightly curious. Lucia and the maid stood across the room, out of my vision. Lord Philip helped me to sit up. I glimpsed the maid’s shocked face and doubled over with a wave of nausea. Somehow, as I always did in my visions, I knew whose body I inhabited for that brief time. I always saw events from the point of view of the person they were happening too. In this case, I knew it was the kind young maid. Knowing that a horrible accident awaited her, even as she helped me onto the bed I could not bring myself to look her in the eyes.

Lord Philip ordered Lucia and the maid to leave the room so that he could speak with me in private. They seemed happy to oblige after witnessing my odd behavior.

“Did you have a vision, Anabel? Is that how it always happens?”

“It was a vision. It does usually happen this way. Sometimes I can sense it and find a safe place to hide before it happens.”

“I can see why you would want to hide. I imagine people have not always been understanding.” I was surprised at his sympathy, but did not respond. “Can you tell me what you saw?”

“It was not about the king, if that’s what you’re wondering. I will tell you if that ever happens. The rest, I cannot tell you. I never tell anyone.”
