Once upon a time, there was a mediocre witch and an outcast shapeshifter who fell in love. We saw the beginnings of Isabella and Emily’s story in One Solstice Night, but I’d always intended that first novella to be the beginning of a series: The Benevolence Tales, a novella series that would center around the continuing adventures of Isabella Fox, mediocre witch for hire, and Emily Deer, once outcast shapeshifter, and the charming little town of Benevolence where these two women-in-love make their home…
And today, that story continues. ❤
One Imbolc Gloaming, the second in the Benevolence Tales, is FINALLY released!
Isabella Fox, mediocre witch for hire, and Emily Deer, the once outcast shapeshifter, have fallen deeply in love. But in the sleepy little town of Benevolence, Emily still feels like an outsider, and, as winter rages on, her wanderlust sharpens.
When the winter festival of Imbolc draws near, Isabella makes preparations for her yearly pilgrimage to Lunarose Abbey, where she and her friends, since their Academy days, have always participated in the annual Imbolc play and kept candlit vigil to the Rose Goddess. This year, Isabella asks Emily to come with her but warns her about the abbey’s odd quirks–like the fact that it’s haunted by a lovelorn ghost.
Every Imbolc night, the ghost roams the ancient halls of Lunarose Abbey, and now Isabella and Emily find the threads of a centuries-old mystery that they long to unravel. But time is running out for a love affair several hundred years in the making…
The novella “One Imbolc Gloaming” is a magical lesbian love story, and the second in The Benevolence Tales series.
