Book Description: 

While working on her studies at the Churchill Military Academy in Kinsburgh, England, Jolán Vajnbirg’s final year at the academy develops into a year of competition, aristocratic love, reincarnated spirits, and a calling from the sky world to help save earth from the death and destruction caused by the order of the hunters.

Jolán Vajnbirg is an often reserved, yet occasionally outspoken young woman living in Kinsburgh, England. She has a relatively easy life living in her quiet England town. She has a full-ride swimming scholarship to the Churchill Military Academy. She has a strong mind, she has an athletic body and she has a loving family and caring friends. Even though her family has a modest income, Jolán makes the best of her situation and excels at anything she puts her focus towards.

The sky world is steadily preparing Jolán for her future fate. Jolán will need her friends to help her battle the order of the hunters. The hunters have upset the universal balance of earth, and the hunters have upset the sky world.

Book Excerpt # 3

     Palace Conversation

      Colemund opened his beer and took a decent drink from the bottle. Jolán watched as his Adam’s apple moved up and down as he swallowed the liquid down his throat. Jolán was smitten, but so was Colemund. As Jolán took the cocktail straw in her drink and mashed the lemon to a decent pulp, Colemund watched her. He admired her long fingers and elegant hands. He watched her wrist turn as she moved the straw. He felt dreamy and he liked the feeling. He had thought about Jolán since the day their paths crossed at the Academy. 

Colemund knew their meeting was fate, and he was not going to let her out of his site. He wanted to hear her talk more; he already loved the sound of her voice. He liked watching her mouth move. He adored watching her become a bit shy, but then confident. He felt like he already knew her, but he wanted to reacquaint himself with her. Colemund was sure they were a match. This was not something he immediately knew, but it was something he instantly felt. 

     As Colemund watched Jolán pulp up the lemon, he jested and asked, ‘Are you making lemonade?’ Jolán sweetly looked at him and replied, ‘I do like the taste of lemons.’ Colemund couldn’t stop thinking about kissing her lips, but he was so calm and cool on the surface Jolán couldn’t really get a read on the prince. After Jolán took her first sip of her drink, she quickly felt the cool vodka slide down her throat and fall to her belly. As she looked at Colemund, he grabbed her hand again and said, ‘I hope you don’t mind, but I want to be as close to you as I can right now. I hope I am not too forward.’ Jolán loved the attention from Colemund. She felt they were intimately together before, but she knew they were not. Jolán tried hard to contain her excitement, but her excited energy often appeared through the warmth of her cheeks as she occasionally blushed when Colemund said something that made her feel like the center of the universe.
