A Fine Line – The Ancients: Part I by J. C. Brennan
A Fine Line – The Ancients Part I is a historical fantasy novel by J. C. Brennan
The Crew have never been strangers to tragedy…
William Healthaway’s family has proven to be quite resilient. Surviving an unprovoked attack by the Damned and defeating the evil warrior Tetron, however, hasn’t guaranteed a happy ending for the family. Still reeling from the loss of his children and plagued by nightmarish images from the Civil War, William must overcome his grief in order to unify his family and prepare them for the impending revenge, certain to be meted out by the Damned.
Unexpected peril presents itself in the form of hate and prejudice from an unlikely source—the townspeople the Crew have live lived among for much of their lives. Rumors of witchcraft, unprovoked attacks and an unfortunate reveal of the powers the family struggles to keep hidden threaten to drive the Crew from their home, just when they crave stability and peace the most.
Despite all of the upheaval in their lives, the members of the Crew press on, facing the challenges to come with fortitude, tenacity and a profound love for one another. Dark days lie ahead, ones that will challenge William and his family’s sanity and make them question whether life is even worth living anymore. In the face of unspeakable tragedy, will the Crew rebound so they can seize the opportunity, unexpectedly lain before them, to learn of their ancient lineage and convoluted history? Does the appearance of a mysterious, but alluring, stranger spell disaster, and death…or can she provide the answers the Crew have sought for so long to find the source of their mysterious powers? Even if the pieces to the puzzle all fall into place, will William’s family be able to stave off the Damned and prevent the decimation of the family they hold so dear?
A Fine Line: The Ancients Part I is the second novel in the series, continuing the story begun in A Fine Line: The Beginning. Follow the further adventures of the Crew as they face down the demonic wolves of the Damned and the destruction delivered in their wake. Celebrate with the family at Christmas and at a wedding…or two, and watch the world transform around them as they observe history from the standstill vantage point of an immortal race. The story of the Healthaways and their ever-growing, ever-changing family is a grand saga which begs to be enjoyed by readers who love sweeping historical drama, grand romance, and enchanting fantasy.
