Timespell Excerpt: Julia



The teacher went on. Julia tried to stay awak, but it was like the woman

spoke in a hypnotic voice on purpose. She could practically hear

her saying, “You’re getting sleepy … very, very sleepy.”



“Julia Corona,” Mrs. Ramirez snapped. Julia straightened

again, forcing her eyes wide open. “Name a victim of the Reign

of Terror. Now.”



“Right.” Crap. Mrs. Ramirez really had it in for her today.

She flipped back a page in her textbook. “A victim,” she repeated.

“There were so very, very many. Sad times …,” she trailed off.



Mrs. Ramirez crossed her arms.



Julia chewed on her lip, scanning a paragraph about the

September Massacres. The mark on her arm grew warm and she

frowned.



The page in her history book went blank.



She blinked. An involuntary sound escaped her throat as the

blank page began filling in. Word after word, image after image,

shifting and changing until the page looked nothing like it had

before. A moment ago it had talked about survivors—Pauline de

Tourzel and her mother—and the next moment it talked about

their untimely deaths.



“We’re waiting.”



She flipped the page, wondering if being sleepy had made her

hallucinate. There was no mistaking the warmth flowing from the

mark on her arm. Her heart pounded as she watched another page

rearrange itself, entire paragraphs disappearing.



She slammed the book shut. Mrs. Ramirez narrowed her eyes.



Julia swallowed. “I—want to remember without looking.”

What was going on? History was changing, and shutting her book

wouldn’t stop whatever was happening in the past.

In TIMESPELL, the brash and impulsive Julia must team up with her sweet and straight-laced best friend, Angie, and the malicious and power-hungry Kaitlyn in order to keep the witch-like powers of her inheritance. But these powers come at a cost. The girls are bound to serve the Fates, and their first mission sends them back in time to Marie Antoinette’s Paris and eventually, into the chaos and war of the French Revolution.
