Isen: A Chilling New Breed of Evil

This is a guest post by author S. M. Boyce. She wanted to introduce an evil creature from her debut series, the Grimoire Trilogy.


What would you do if your soul was trapped in another’s body—and they could use the skills and knowledge you’ve built thus far in your life? What if they could don your appearance at any time, live your life if they wanted, and you could only watch?

That’s exactly what isen—soul stealers from the world of the Grimoire Trilogy—do every day. Each soul makes an isen more powerful, but comes at a price: the souls rattle around in the isen’s head, driving them slowly insane. To remain immortal, the isen has to keep stealing...if they don't, they grow old and eventually die.

Seeing the barb in an isen’s palm reaching out to steal your soul is the surest sign you’ll be trapped as their slave until they die. Want to learn about them anyway? Check out Lichgates (Grimoire Trilogy #1) to get hooked.

Guest Post by Author Nikki Jefford

A Writer’s Habitat
Photo essay by Nikki Jefford.

For the past year and a half we’ve resided in a rather funky dwelling in Friday Harbor, WA (San Juan Island).

1. Can’t see a single neighbor from any window on the three acre property. An introvert’s idea of paradise.

2. Jungle cat montage in the entry. The previous owner was a tile maker.

3. 3 in a tree

4. The Beware Chair. Cover in moss below a circle of chains hanging from a tree in the back of the property. A little creepy.

5. Would make a great filming spot for the Blair Witch Project.

6. I’m still finding things hidden in…

7. ...and under trees

8.Did the Wicked Witch of the West leave behind a shoe?

Alas, we must leave this funky place. Our landlady put it on the market at the beginning of the year and just reduced the price. I’ve enjoyed the human quiet here on Point Caution Drive and the sounds of birds, hooting owls, and bats flying overhead when I walk my dog down the road at night. It’s also been a place of great productivity in writing. Every author needs a retreat.

Nikki Jefford is the author of the Spellbound fantasy series. Entangled (book one) is a semifinalist in The Kindle Book Review’s Best Indie Books of 2012 YA category. Nikki is a third generation Alaskan who found paradise in the not-so-tropical San Juan Islands where she is, once more, neighbors with Canada.
