Charles Bewitched: a Leland Sisters novella

Marissa Doyle
Free sample

In this novella follow-up to Bewitching Season and Betraying Season, sixteen-year-old Charles Leland is not looking forward to his summer holidays from Eton—not when he has to spend them cramming history. Even the thought of staying with his sister Persy and her husband Lochinvar while his parents are in Ireland can’t cheer him up. 

But studying quickly takes a back seat to finding out what has happened to Persy, who disappears from home the day he arrives. All signs indicate that she’s been kidnapped, but a Romany boy named Nando convinces Charles that her disappearance has a much more otherworldly explanation.

Now Charles must brave the perils of the fairy lands to try to prevent his sister from being forcibly married to a powerful fairy lord. With the help of the fairy lord’s own younger (and alarmingly pretty) sister, a copy of History and Policy of the Norman and Angevin Kings that he must read before September, and her majesty Queen Victoria, he just might succeed. But will he also be able to rescue himself?

About the author

Marissa Doyle graduated from Bryn Mawr College and went on to graduate school intending to be an archaeologist, but somehow got distracted.  Eventually she figured out what she was really supposed to be doing and started writing.  She’s channeled her inner history geekiness into a successful young adult historical fantasy series (the Leland Sisters), and is now also happily writing fantasy of various types for teens and adults.  She lives in her native Massachusetts with her family, including a bossy but adorable pet rabbit, and loves quilting, gardening, and collecting antiques. Oh, and coffee. Please visit her at her website, www.marissadoyle.com, and at her history blog, NineteenTeen  http://nineteenteen.com.
