My Top 10 Favorite Quotes

by K. Ferrin, author

There are so many writers out there who have managed to capture something profound, or gut-wrenching, world changing, or just plain unexpected and funny in the words they’ve added to the page. As I read, I love capturing them for easy reference later. I’ve saved an impressive number of these on my Kindle over the years, and I am excited to share a selection of some of my favorites!

The Overview

Across the Darkling Sea
K. Ferrin
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
Release Date: November 12, 2016

Synopsis: Across the Darkling Sea is the first book in the new serial fantasy series Magicfall, by K. Ferrin!

Magic is forbidden in Brielle, but that never stopped Evelyn. Until Now. Because Evelyn has discovered she is magic, and now she is running for her life.

Her only hope is on an island cloaked in shadow, an island of dark magic and even darker beasts. An island warlocks call home.

Evelyn’s friends have turned against her, her own mother tried to kill her, and the place she calls home has banished her. Hidden away in the belly of a riverboat, a stowaway, her journey begins.

Across the Darkling Sea is book one in a serial series. Each book is roughly 50,000 words or about 150 pages. To emphasize, this is a serial series, meaning it’s one story that stretches across multiple books.
