The Carnelian Legacy was first published in 2013, and is Cheryl’s debut novel. Its sequel, The Carnelian Tyranny, was released in 2014. The third book in the trilogy is The Carnelian Destiny, scheduled for release this year.

We are here to tell you about the first of these heroic stories, about a woman called Marisa MacCallum. Here is a summary of what the book entails…

Marisa MacCallum always believed that the man of her dreams was out there somewhere. The problem is – he’s in another dimension.

After the death of her father, eighteen-year-old Marisa’s life is on the verge of imploding. She seeks comfort on her daily ride through the woods of Gold Hill but when a mysterious lightning storm suddenly strikes, she is hurled into the ancient alternate dimension of Carnelia where she is discovered by the arrogant, yet handsome nobleman, Darian Fiore.

Stranded in a world teeming with monsters, maniacs and medieval knights, she is forced to join Darian on a dangerous mission to negotiate peace with his cousin and archenemy, Savino da Rocha. Along the way, she begins to see his softer side and falls in love. But when she discovers that Darian is trapped in an arranged marriage, her heart shatters.

When Savino falls for her charms and demands her hand in exchange for peace, Marisa is faced with an impossible choice: marry the enemy of the man she loves or betray them both and become the catalyst for a bloody war.

When venturing through the realms of goodreads.com, we found that the five-star reviews of The Carnelian Legacy are endless! Here are some of the best…

“Although I didn’t expect it, this book swept me away. Adventure, romance, royalty, dangerous beasts, swords, shifting dimensions, heroines, nasty evil guys, conspiracy, secrets… oh, and a hero we all dream of! Yes, this story had it all.”

“Cheryl Koevoet is an up and coming inspiring fiction writer. Her first book grabs the attention of anyone looking for suspense, romance, intrigue! Not your typical knights and ladies kind of story. There is more to it than that. You will fall in love with the characters. At times you will wonder what they will do next. Cheryl has a gift of placing the reader right in the center of the action where she doesn’t have to be told what is happening or what to feel because she is experiencing it right along with the character. Heroes, heroines, villains…they’re all there.”
