Alarick Brandon is the powerful wizard who operates The Keep, a refuge for magical people fleeing the persecution of the Ministry.

A bitter realist, Alarick knows it's only a matter of time until the Ministry succeeds in eradicating magic from the world - and exterminating all magical beings - so he has been careful to avoid any personal involvement with the people who pass through his sanctuary.

But when Elissa Stone arrives at The Keep, her village a smoldering ruin and only her magical talent and a forbidden library left to her name, Alarick's ordered world descends into chaos.

Elissa is a Book Mesmer, a magical talent long believed extinct. She can enchant books, making them indestructible, unreadable... even deadly to unauthorized readers. But while her magic can secure a legacy for future magical generations, it's not a skill that's good in a fight, and certainly not one Alarick sees any real use for. But there's something compelling about a woman who defies the Ministry's edicts against female literacy, and she seems determined to prove that knowledge is a weapon in its own right...

The first installment in an enticing new fantasy series by author Jennifer Derrick, Library of Absolution is a compelling story of perseverance and determination in the face of persecution, in a Dark Age where hope is lost - and knowledge is the only thing left to fight for.

I became a writer at the age of six when my parents bought me a child's typewriter for Christmas and agreed to pay me a penny per page for any stories I churned out. When I got older, I realized that I needed to make (much) more money from my writing so I first turned to the corporate world (where I learned that I am spectacularly unsuited to cubicle life) and ultimately to freelancing where I now write everything from technical manuals to articles on personal finance and European-style board games. My writing career came full circle when Clean Teen Publishing accepted Broken Fate, my first novel. By my calculations, my parents owe me about $3.00 for that book. I live in North Carolina and, when not writing, can often be found reading anything I can get my hands on, playing board games, watching sports, camping, running marathons, and playing with my dog.
