Severed Ties Banner copy

Looking for something new to read? Check out Severed Ties by Angie Skelhorn.

I have an excerpt for ya and an awesome giveaway!

SeveredTies cover



Severed Ties is a story of close friendships, addiction and magic.

By the use of divination and magic, some ties can never be severed. In the beginning, by the light of the Full Moon, Frankie connects with Candice’s energy through dream time and witnesses her involvement in a terrifying act of violence. After receiving information from Sandra that their childhood friend is missing, they pack their bags and head to the inner city to find her. Frankie, afraid for her own safety, has a chance encounter with a local named Calvin who is plugged into what’s happening. Using his workable ideas-as well as Frankie and Sandra consulting tarot, ordinary playing cards, astrology, and spell-casting-they set forth to free Candice from the dangerous situation she is in.



A few minutes later, the two stepped on to the bus. They wheeled their luggage down the narrow aisle. Sandra sat at the very back and prepared to read maps and travel info. Frankie chose the window seat ahead of her. Passengers read or conversed, others prepared to watch movies on their laptops. The uniformed driver boarded the bus and swaggered his way to the back, carefully examining every ticket. He walked to the front of the vehicle, sat, and then revved the motor for departure.

“Ready, set, go, Frankie?” Sandra asked as the bus driver revved the motor, again.

“Ready as I’ll ever be,” she sighed

The bus pulled out of the station. Sandra didn’t look up from her maps. She was quiet studying the travel information. Frankie stared out the gritty window, her mind flooded with childhood memories. The bus passed the tiny, brick building where she had attended school. They drove alongside the train tracks where she would watch the trains and imagine the destination, as well as the forest where she first practiced spell crafting. Every recollection included Sandra and Candice. The tender memories of her small town affected her emotions. She was aware of what she was leaving behind. She was about to leave her security for the unknown.


She didn’t know why, but she knew when she returned, she wouldn’t be the same person she was today.

A peek inside Messenger!

As Eran’s feet left the ground, he found me in the crowd and gave me one final burning look. There was something in his eyes now, not pride at having subdued Jacob or to impress upon me the importance of the lesson he’d just demonstrated. All that seemed to have been forgotten. No, what I saw was intense curiosity. And just before he broke our gaze to adjust his sight on the route they were taking, I was certain that he felt the same way I did…that he wished he understood what had just happened between us.

As the rest of us watched in awed silence, I couldn’t help but notice that, in a way similar to the messengers on their arrival, Eran’s group departed with the same close-knit familiarity.

“Who are they?” I asked, my head still tilted back.

“Part of a legion,” Daniel replied.

Despite my seclusion, I’d heard of legions. There were several of them, each with a primary purpose. “Which one?”

“The one that oversees castigated entities.”

“Those who have wronged humankind?”

“Yes, the Fallen Ones,” confirmed Daniel.

I’d heard of them, too. In passing.

“And Eran’s a part of that legion?”

“No,” Daniel said with a subdued chuckle. “Not a part of, the leader of. He’s their colonel.”

“Colonel?” I said, finally lowering my head.

Eran had been out of sight for a while, but this was the first time I’d felt enough conviction to look away.

“You really have no idea who he is, do you?” Daniel was astonished.


He didn’t reply for what felt like a very long time. “Eran has been credited with keeping the most dangerous entities from committing further atrocious acts while they are sentenced to an eternity on earth.”

“You mean his legion has,” I corrected him.

“No, I mean Eran. There is a reason why he is renowned. When the most vicious of the Fallen Ones are too much for others in the legion to handle, they request Eran, which is to say that he pursues and restrains those who all others cannot handle.”

“That takes skill,” Jacob muttered, stretching a kink from his neck.

Daniel chuckled at the understatement. “Some of which you just witnessed…personally,” he added.

I didn’t share Daniel’s humor, being too preoccupied by who I’d just met, and how his attention had been so finely tuned to me. “Do you think he’ll be back?”

“Eran?” Daniel said. “It’s possible. I’ve heard every action he makes is deliberate…calculated. He was here with a reason today. If he returns, he’ll have a reason then too.”

Jacob groaned, evidently not anticipating Eran’s return. “Next time you can spar with him.”

Daniel chuckled. “I’d think our time would be better spent training the messengers, which is something we should probably return to…,” he hinted.

Jacob nodded, rubbing the side of his neck where I remember a vine had hit him. Daniel pitied his friend through a quiet, suppressed laugh, wrapping a friendly arm across Jacob’s shoulders and walking him toward the waiting group. But my attention drifted back to the sky where Eran had disappeared.

The anticipation of seeing him again proved too much and my insides were ignited in a way I’d never felt before. That searing pleasure worked its way through my belly, and as much as I wanted to dwell in that sensation, I had to force myself to ignore it. There was work to be done and that feeling was a distraction.

Resigned to concentrate on my task at hand, I joined the messengers shortly after, but not before peering back for one more lingering glance at the sky.
