*WINNER OF CHANTICLEER PARANORMAL BOOK AWARDS**REEDSY DISCOVERY'S BEST NEW YOUNG ADULT BOOKS*Worlds collide for both teen and adult readers, who will love the fast-paced thrills and interplay of witchy fantasy, Celtic folklore, and reality in The Wise One—book one of The Scottish Scrolls series.Mckenna's never thought much of her nightmares, but on her seventeenth birthday, a vivid dream of burning at the stake awakens her dormant abilities, thrusting her into a world where faeries are real, spirits hold a grudge, and a High Priestess obsessed with a 16th-century prophecy is tracking her every move.

Now, her overprotective dads, Seán and Andre, are forced to tell her the truth—they know who her birth mother is, and her life is not the surrogate story she's always been told. Abigail, Mckenna's mom, is some sort of mystic, and Mckenna a Wise One.

Whatever the hell that means.

With the help of a persistent little wren and company of a newfound friend, Mckenna journeys to Ireland in search of her mother and real answers. Along the way, she learns to harness her innate magic and trust her intuition, as best she can anyway—Cillian, a kind and passionate delegate who crosses her path, is proving much harder to read.

Only her mother could truly help her halt her ill fate and prepare her for what's to come . . . before she gives in to the darkness she knows is buried deep within.Author K.T. Anglehart expertly weaves a story set in Ireland that is both timeless and unique, a perfect cross-market read for those searching for the next endearing urban fantasy classic.

What authors and reviewers are saying about The Wise One"A heartwarming coming-of-age story with characters that resonate, rich European folklore, and enchanting details that tickle the senses long after the last page is read." —V. G. Anderson, author of The Light in the Sound

“Much like a young adult version of A Discovery of Witches, this story expertly blends the folklore of the Celtic people with present-day life. This book is highly recommended to readers who enjoy young adult literature and the magical landscape of Ireland.” —Mary Lanni, Reedsy Discovery reviewer

“The Wise One needs to be on all of the must-read lists for 2020. I’m so moved by the storytelling, the setting and the characters K.T. created. I consumed this in a day, I couldn’t tear myself away. Not only did the author suck me into this breathtakingly visual book about magic, witches and faeries, but they stuck in so many life lessons that humans of all ages need to be reminded of.” —Sarah Bell, book reviewer

"While I was reading this book, I was reminded of my first foray into Irish myths and folktales—an experience that left me in love, and a little obsessed, with this topic. The Wise One captures the same magic, and supported by the author’s research and the heart she’s poured into this story, it really sings." —Sarah Limardo, book reviewer
