Description

PLANTS ARE DANGEROUS.
You Have Been WARNED.

Laurel thinks she's just a normal thirteen year old. But when her mother is kidnapped and a strange woman with green scars turns up on her doorstep, Laurel discovers that she is really a seedmage -- she can control plants using magic -- and that her mother can no longer protect her from the terrifying Nightshades that now roam the NY city streets.

Following her mother's kidnapper, Laurel finds a hidden world known as The Kingdom Of Plants. A world where plants & imagination unite to create powerful magic and entire cities can grow from a single seed.

With the help of new-found friends, Laurel must learn to control her powers and save her mother from a mysterious enemy -- one who seeks to twist the laws of nature and bring the Kingdom of Plants to its knees.

Enter a world where magic, and monsters grow where you least expect.

Review quote

"The Curse of the Nightshade: The Kingdom of Plants Book 1, has all the elements of a good adventure. Strong, loveable protagonists, strong but evil antagonists, a fascinating plot and lots of excitement to lead the reader into a garden maze of fun, fear, and action.

Hidden behind this action-packed adventure are some elements of societal and ecological significance. Laurel speaks out with conviction for the importance of plants, for the importance of things that grow in the earth.

A fun adventurous read full of strong, important messages."
