Fall, Sacred Apple

Visions of Darkness Product Page

For the first time in twenty-four years, a child is born at the Abbey of Sacred Apples.

Corbha, formerly the youngest laysister, prays that her adulthood will now be recognised. When her siblings choose her to bring the newborn’s caul to the Abbot, Corbha rejoices in her answered prayer.

It’s only after she receives a new sacred task — one which endangers the lives of everyone at the Abbey — that Corbha begins to worry her blessing may have been a curse.

Coming 6 October 2020 in the Visions of Darkness anthology by Kyanite Publishing!
