The Occuli, Book 2
GOLD MEDAL WINNER - 2016 AUTHORSdb.com Book Cover Contest!
"FIVE STARS!" by Ellie and AJSW
"LOVED THE JOURNAL FORMAT! RECOMMEND THIS SERIES!" by DJS
The first short story in the Occuli series is here!
A Golden-Eyed, or "Aureus", has one sole purpose in life: to protect. Raised from children to be bodyguards, these Occuli are both the fastest and strongest and are commonly used as fierce weapons.
Frequently they are not what they seem however, as they can be tempted by too much power and control over those they protect. This can lead them down a dark and dangerous path.
This supplement to Book One of the Occuli series, gives the reader a more intimate look at the character of Zias. In this story the reader is taken through Zias' personal journal, giving his perspective on the journey so far with Remy and the other Occuli. He tells the story through his eyes about his struggle to remember his past and break from traditions and curses, while putting it all on the line for the love of his life, Remy Verbetta.
The Occuli Series Book 3
"Christie Stenzel’s incredible writing style is intoxicating, drawing the reader into a magical world where anything and everything is possible… I thoroughly enjoyed The Violet Eyed, and wholeheartedly recommend it to readers aged over 15 years, who are fans of the paranormal, mystery, drama, romance, and finding oneself through it all..." Excerpt from the 5 STAR review from Readers' Favorite, March 2017
This tale of mystery, romance, intrigue and deceit, follows Remy's sister Violet through her tragic life.
As we delve into secrets of the past, present and future and explore Violet's relationships, we learn about her struggle against the darkness as she learns who and what she truly is and that her entire life has also been a lie.
A unique breed of Occuli, Violet's eyes match her namesake. Being cursed from birth, will she find the strength to defeat the darkness within, or will she succumb to the darkness that is her nature?
