Kimberly Olsen’s new book, ACCALIA, portrays a dark, modern-day Beauty and the Beast love story. Following the seemingly ordinary Diana, it soon becomes apparent that she is hiding a dark and dangerous secret. Afflicted with an ancient curse, Diana must spend eternity as a werewolf, which leads to a constant struggle between her animal instincts of self-preservation and human instincts of love.
This paranormal thriller takes a romantic turn when Sebastian Micchetti, a forensic investigator, looks into a series of mystery murders. When the main characters paths cross, they eventually fall in love, but will the duality of light and darkness truly learn to co-exist?
With themes of denial, self-acceptance and transformation, ACCALIA paints the melancholy reality of hiding the real you that relates to young adult life, as well as older audiences.
“ACCALIA puts a new twist on the werewolf theme,” say Olsen. “This paranormal story covers underlying themes of sexuality, murder and human psyche that relate to real world topics, but is meant to keep the readers turning the pages with all the experiences the main characters and sub-characters go through.”
Green Pines, Book Two
Colin Knox knows about exhaustion. He’s acted as judge, jury and executioner to rogue wolves for over a decade, but never lingered long enough to help the survivors pick up the pieces–until now. Lorelei rouses his instincts, both protective and carnal. She’s willing, but only to indulge in physical distraction. Colin wants more, to be the hero who slays her monsters.
Especially when it becomes clear that malicious magic is loose in their sanctuary. The danger draws them together until it’s impossible to separate lust from affection, good intentions from rationalizations. Darkness is stirring at Green Pines. If they can’t fight it together, they could lose everything they have left.
