Synopsis: "When you have the Gift, your life is not your own."

I was born to a family that harnessed the winds and could read futures in fire and water. Yet my mother kept her secrets.

Then the werewolf came, sharing his madness.

Now it's my turn to keep secrets....

Descended from powerful magic-users, but ignorant of her heritage, young Alfreda Sorensson learns magic and wisdom from her extended family in an alternate early 1800s Michigan Territory.

From the Author: The Night Calls world is an alternative history fantasy. This means that I have made some things easier for my modern audience. Felled trees are called stumps, not butts as many pioneers referred to them. Recipes are not called receipts. On the other hand, there were elderly people who did refer to George Washington as King Washington, even though he refused a crown both in real history and in Allie's world. Those elders came from a time when all rulers were kings. It takes time to change speech patterns.
I hope you enjoy figuring out what is history, what is fantasy, and what is folklore.

Book Description Book View Cafe, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. When you have the Gift, your life is not your own. I was born to a family that harnessed the winds and could read futures in fire and water. Yet my mother kept her secrets. Then the werewolf came, sharing his madness. Now it s my turn to keep secrets. Descended from powerful magic-users, but ignorant of her heritage, young Alfreda Sorensson learns magic and wisdom from her extended family in an alternate early 1800s Michigan Territory. Reviews: If you can imagine Little House on the Prairie with werewolves, vampires, and magic, you ve got an idea what this dark fantasy novel is like. .the strong characters, the matter-of-fact tone, and the strong sense of place make this something special. -Locus Magazine There are very few books I reread on a regular basis. Night Calls is one. When I read Night Calls I thought, first, that Robin McKinley s The Blue Sword had at last found a proper shelf-mate. -Laura Anne Gilman, Nebula Award Nominee for Flesh and Fire: The Vineart War series. Author of Silver on the Road Kimbriel deftly weaves elements of horror and historical fiction to fabricate a compelling tale of another time and place. Excellent descriptive passages and strong, sympathetic characters pull the reader into the story. The underlying horror in Night Calls builds slowly and inexorably to an exciting climax. Nordic superstitions and spirits combined with unusual ways to combat the supernatural make this a unique read for horror fans. -Rochelle M. Bilz, Voya, October 1996 I am so glad that Katharine Eliska Kimbriel s Night Calls is getting out into the world again. If anything, I believe this story s time has come-it s the dark fantasy with an underlying glint of the numinous that I think so many readers are looking for and not finding. -Sherwood Smith, author of Crown Duel With a clear, distinctive voice, Katharine Kimbriel invents and re-invents magic on America s frontier, a place hardly explored by writers and long overdue for a visit. (Or should I say a visitation?) Love the book (Kindred Rites). -Jane Yolen, award-winning author of Briar Rose I have not been so enthralled with a novel since Wrede s Thirteenth Child. It takes talent to build a world so rich and lush that the reader cannot imagine it ever being differently, but that is exactly what Ms. Kimbriel has done. -April M. Steenburgh, So Many books, So Little Time. Seller Inventory # APC9781611383478
