Worlds collide for both young and mature readers, who will love the fast-paced thrills, chemistry between characters, and interplay of witchy fantasy, mythology, 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.
Praise for the Book
“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

There is so much to love about the Wise One! Urban Fantasy set between the United States, Ireland, England and the Isle of Man. The references to the Isle of Man were my favorite since my ancestors immigrated to the U.S. from there. I’ve read a lot of fiction and this is a place rarely mentioned, so, hats off to the author for including Manx folklore! With tour-like descriptions of landmarks, mystical spots and the lore surrounding the fae, this is one magical tale. I read it all within 24 hours being pulled by the story line as well as the earth based intuitive and empathic main characters. The political messages got a bit heavy at times for me, but the story telling was fantastic. Reading the Wise One makes me want to visit all of these places and see them for myself. I’m glad this is a series, so there’s more to look forward to. I enjoyed the authentic nods to the language, landscapes and folk tales of each region explored. Thank you to Prism Book Tours and the author for a free copy as apart of the official tour!
