9781481411233: Compulsion (Heirs of Watson Island)

Three plantations. Two wishes. One ancient curse.All her life, Barrie Watson has been a virtual prisoner in the house where she lived with her shut-in mother. When her mother dies, Barrie promises to put some mileage on her stiletto heels. But she finds a new kind of prison at her aunt's South Carolina plantation instead--a prison guarded by an ancient spirit who long ago cursed one of the three founding families of Watson Island and gave the others magical gifts that became compulsions.

Stuck with the ghosts of a generations-old feud and hunted by forces she cannot see, Barrie must find a way to break free of the family legacy. With the help of sun-kissed Eight Beaufort, who knows what Barrie wants before she knows herself, the last Watson heir starts to unravel her family's twisted secrets. What she finds is dangerous: a love she never expected, a river that turns to fire at midnight, a gorgeous cousin who isn't what she seems, and very real enemies who want both Eight and Barrie dead.    For fans of The Gilmore Girls and Supernatural, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's Beautiful Creatures meets Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Boys in this southern story of love and romance.

From the Author :

In Boone's debut, an expansive Southern gothic tale, Barrie Watson is sent to live with her aunt Pru on Watson Island after Barrie's shut-in mother, Lula, dies and her godfather is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Barrie was born with a "finding gift" that compels her to seek what is lost or left unsettled, and amid the Beaufort and Colesworth clans--the founding families of Watson Island, along with Barrie's forebears--Barrie learns she isn't the only one with a gift. Curses plague Watson Island, ghosts haunt its mansions, evil spirits live in its woods, and a frightening "Fire Carrier" emerges at night over its waters. Together, Barrie and a handsome Beaufort boy named Eight seek justice and to right old wrongs. Though the novel is grounded in the present day, there's an old-fashioned quality to Boone's dialogue and characters; she skillfully blends rich magic and folklore with adventure, sweeping romance, and hidden treasure, all while exploring the island and its accompanying legends. An impressive start to the Heirs of Watson Island series. Ages 12-up.  -- Publishers Weekly

About the Author :

Martina Boone was born in Prague and spoke several languages before learning English after moving to the U.S. She has never fallen out of love with fairy tale settings, words, or characters who have to find themselves. She is the author of the acclaimed and romantically magical Southern Gothic COMPULSION and the Heirs of Watson Island series about three plantations, two wishes, an ancient curse, and three teens from feuding families whose destinies are dangerously intertwined. She is also the founder of both AdventuresinYAPublishing.com, a three-time Writer's Digest 101 Best Websites for Writers site, and YASeriesInsiders.com, a Tumblr site devoted to news, giveaways, and insider secrets of much-loved and up-and-coming YA series.

From her home in Virginia, where she lives with her husband, children, a tuxedo cat, and a new Sheltie puppy, she enjoys writing contemporary fantasy set in the kinds of magical places she'd love to visit. When she isn't writing, she's addicted to travel, horses, skiing, chocolate flavored tea, and anything with Nutella on it.
