Hidden

Book 1 of The Avena Series

Book 1 of The Avena Series

Ebony has always known that she is different. Her violet eyes mark her out, and her protective parents have kept her in a gorgeous valley, home-schooled, safe from everything – almost as if she’s being hidden. But she’s changing: glowing, getting more and more beautiful, and stronger than anyone knows. Ebony can’t stay hidden for ever, and when she meets complicated, intense Jordan, something explodes inside her – something that can be seen from the heavens; something that changes everything. Ebony is a stolen angel, concealed on Earth. Now the heavens have found her, they want her back.

Book 2 of The Avena Series

Book 2 of The Avena Series

Following the revelation that Ebony is an angel, and Nathaneal’s narrow victory in battle with Prince Luca, the two are enjoying their newfound love. But Ebony’s friend Jordan is bitterly angry that he has lost the girl of his dreams. Then suddenly Prince Michael arrives to arrest Nathaneal for breaking Avena’s law when he revealed his powers on Earth in his bid to save Ebony from Luca. Nathaneal is forced to return to Avena without Ebony to stand trial. Jordan seizes the opportunity to plant doubt in Ebony’s mind about Nathaneal and her own angelic nature. Desperate to find out what has happened to her adoptive parents, Ebony is persuaded by Jordan to believe that new teacher Mr Xavier, who claims to be her uncle, can introduce her to her real father. Disaster inevitably follows and Ebony finds herself at the centre of another epic battle in the realm of Avena itself. Fantastical and powerfully emotional, this angelic romance series is rapidly winning enthusiastic fans.

    one question marianne, books Avena series consists of: Hidden, Broken and Fearless, that I have very clear, but I wonder if it also published the Samandra publisher, since I like to read in Spanish. Ah, wilderness I love your books when I started reading Old Magic I could not separate, further it may sound ridiculous but I felt there was a strong connection between Jarrod Thornton and it started to feel attraction towards him, and go did not help me get over her deep green eyes (I have a weakness for green eyes).
    The same thing happened to me, this sounds even more ridiculous, as I read that Arkarian was sympathetic, sexy and tender me completely forget about Jarrod (Nor helped me too sos colo violet eyes). Well I hope sincerely response and also wait with a yearning The Avena Series books.

    • Hi Daniela, I have a weakness for green eyes too. That’s probably why I have so many green-eyed main characters in my books. Thanks for writing and telling me how much you loved my four books that have been translated into Spanish by Salamandra Publishers. When my new series, starting with Hidden, was published, I had hoped Salamandra would publish it in Spanish, as they had had enormous success with Old Magic, and The Guardians of Time, but unfortunately, that has not been the case and at present I have not received an offer to publish from any Spanish publishers. Hopefully one day Salamandra, or another Spanish publisher, will decide to publish The Avena Series, and I will definitely let all my Spanish-reading fans know! Don’t give up hope. I’m not.

      All the best

      I hope my books didn’t get you into trouble in class! Thanks for the comment. Great encouragement for me. And I’ll let you in on a secret, I can’t wait for Fearless either! It’s at the printers, I believe, and will be released in July in the UK, Australia, and maybe a little later if you live in the US.

    Hello Marianne,
    I have read Old Magic and the Guardians of Time and I love them. Specially the characters.
    I want ask you to the Avena Series will there be the translation on German sometime? I have begun to read Hidden in English, but I am not sure, if I understand the storry correct.

    • Hello Anna

      I wish I had better news regarding a German translation of the Avena Series, but so far no German publisher has decided to translate, not even Hanser, my publisher who had enormous success with Old Magic and the Guardians of Time. I hope that one day I will have better news. When that happens, I will put a GIANT notice up on my website and Facebook page. Thank you for asking. It might be a good idea to drop an email to Hanser or to Bloomsbury UK and ask them if they can make a German translation happen.

    Hi Marianne,

    I started with your guardians of time trilogy and fell in love with your writing style. For weeks I have had dreams of arkarian and his beautiful eyes. I was hooked to your books from the day I started and just can’t wait for more. Old magic was again an exceptional book. When I saw the next trilogy, the avena, I knew I had to read it in a marathon so thought of waiting till fearless came. But couldn’t wait any longer and finished both the first books. Waiting with bated breath for fearless and many more trilogies from you. You rock!

    Love,

      Thank you so much for your heartfelt comments. It’s comments like yours that give me the motivation to write and keep writing. I’m not sure where you are from, but Fearless will be released in four weeks. And I think I might be just as excited as you are, but I will also be sad to see this series come to a conclusion. Please feel free to let me know what you think.

      With best wishes

    I’m not sure how long it takes before readers in India can get a hold of a copy of my books after they’re released. I’m sorry you have to wait at all! I feel as if I have been waiting for FEARLESS to be released for a long time myself!

    Thank you for your comment. I love how you and your Mom fight over my books. Please tell your Mom I think she’s wonderful!

    Hi Ms Curley,

    I’ve started reading the avena series a few days ago and I can’t stop reading :)
    I really like your writing technique, where the plot goes smoothly but its very intense. I also like the idea where the story is from the points of view of two different characters. Best fantasy book i’ve read in a while :)
    keep writing

    Ms Curley,

    I want to thank you for writing The Guardians of Time trilogy; it turned up at just the right time and has been a favourite of mine for years now. The complex plot revealed through alternating perspectives captured my interests, and I stormed through the trilogy in less than a week. The voices, in particular, are so rich and personalised.

    I wondered if you had any advice for novice writers? How do you make such complex plot lines seem so effortless? Any advice would be greatly appreciated (and treasured!)

    I wish you every success for your latest book.

    • Hi Marianne
      Thank you for loving my Guardians of Time trilogy, and for letting me know how it turned up at just the right time for you.

      My general advice for novice writers is to read widely and experiment in styles and genres until you find your voice and the genre you are most comfortable to write for. This is important because if you are not loving what you do writing can become hard work and stifle the free-flow of your thoughts. Learning to write can be a long process. I’ve been writing for twenty years and I’m still learning, so don’t wait until you have taken all the writing courses you can find, but start plotting that book you know you have inside you, and write the first draft with the thought that no one will be reading it. Let the words flow from your heart. Say whatever it is you want your characters to say. There will be plenty of time to edit and revise after that first draft is written.

      As for complex plots, I can only speak for myself. I plan my books as much as I can, starting with research. You can find my Writing Process in a blog post on my website using the arrow on left side of the screen.

      All the best for your future success.

      Thank you for letting me know that you loved the Avena Series so much that you would like it to continue. I know in my heart that Ebony and Thane are happy now, but of course there are always possibilities for more of their story to be told. They are still inside my head, and I hope one day to return to their world, I just can’t promise when that might be as yet.
