The Sanction Chronicles - Welcome to Sanction by Dylan Strickland, Terry Kate, and Ashley Renee
Welcome to Sanction, the 3rd largest all paranormal town in the USA and Wind Haven High School accepting students from the werewolf, witch, and vampire community.
September 1: The Hawthorne Academy of Witchcraft is burned to the ground leaving the teens from Sanction's three biggest powers with only one place to go... Now if the Witches can avoid Non-Witches, the Werewolves don't tear anyone apart, and the Vampires keep their mouths shut Wind Haven High School might survive. IF...
The Sanction Chronicles has two major things going for it. A cool story told from three different perspectives, and it is being written and published in a unique way. But I will get to that in a minute.
Let me start with the actual story and characters. There's Hope, Nate and Jessie. Witch, Werewolf and Human. These three characters give a glimpse into the different perspectives of the students attending Wind Haven High School. The school year begins badly for the witches when Hope discovers the Hawthorne Academy of Witchcraft burning to the ground. The witches are forced to join the werewolves and vampires at Wind Haven High School.
Hope is a witch with two witchy sisters. She finds herself on the outs with them when her powers start manifesting in a different direction. Jessie, the only human, is kind of the odd man out, and she just so happens to be living with the influential Vittori vampire family. She's got a smart mouth and isn't good at filtering what comes out of it. She might be my favorite :-) Nate is living under the heavy weight of his father's disapproval. As the new werewolf in town he is constantly under scrutiny by the whole werewolf community.
This is the first book in this series. It starts off in September when the school year is starting. It's going to be put out in monthly installments, and each book takes the reader through a month of the school year at the Paranormal Wind Haven High School. I think this is a very appealing way to put out a story. Almost like a monthly magazine that you look forward to getting in the mail.
