What should we know about her?

Celine loves her mystical bookstore, Visions and in a lot of ways it reflects her personality. This is Sarette’s description of the store.

I waited a few seconds, taking in the smell of sage, incense, and a mixture of other organic smells while my eyes adjusted to the crazy ambient lighting. When I could see again, I noticed the Christmas lights hanging haphazardly from one piece of furniture or fixture to the next, giving a multi-colored glow that added to the ambiance. Wind chimes were clinking and ringing as the air from a small oscillating fan blew past them. Bookcases lined all the walls. I smiled when I saw the bookcase that contained the novels about vampires, fairies, witches, werewolves, and such. Celine, the shop’s owner, had a handwritten sign hanging over it that read “FICTION?” as if she had a question about whether or not that stuff was real.
The case to the left displayed all the candles. I needed a new water candle. I have no idea why mine always burned up so much faster than the others. One would think that a “water” candle would burn slower. Nor do I understand why I shouldn’t purchase a batch of them at one time, but Celine said you get better results from a new candle that has recently had the appropriate spell cast. Apparently spells have a short shelf life, so I come here a lot. A candle burning in each corner of my room has always helped my paranoia. I’ve often felt like I was being watched. The candles seemed to keep me safe in a bubble. That’s why I preferred being at home most of the time.
There was no real order of displays in the cramped little retail space at Visions; Celine felt there was no need for such accouterments. “You’ll know when you find what you need,” she always said.


I hope you enjoyed meeting Celine!

Seventeen-year-old Sarette has always thought of her life as average, even a bit boring. She does well in school, has a loving mother and a loyal best friend, Mathew. Of course, she has her problems as well—cold Michigan winters, a long-lost father she knows nothing about, and the lack of a boyfriend. She also has the vague sensation that she is being watched by some unseen entity, but figures that means she’s average and crazy.

Nothing could be further from the truth . . .

Daearen isn’t much different than the human world.

Imagine a world where science is replaced with magic.




I hope all ya’ll have a great day and week!
