Title: RESISTOR: An Eerden
Novel (Ellinor Book 1)
Author: C.E. Clayton
Pub. Date: October 1, 2020
Publisher: C.E. Clayton
Formats: Paperback, eBook
Ellinor Rask has wanted one thing for the past eight years:
vengeance. But when Ellinor is captured, she finds herself dragged back into
the world she walked away from, entangled once more with friends she would
As if that weren’t humiliating enough, Ellinor learns first hand
that her magic can be stripped away by a piece of bio-tech—and her ex-boss is
happy to leash her with the technology in order to get what he wants. If
Ellinor behaves, the device will be removed. All she has to do is deliver a
package. One containing a creature created from raw magical energy and
discarded technology. Simple, right?
But when her goals start getting people murdered, Ellinor has to
decide if the year’s planning, her honor, and even her own magic, are worth the
lives it’s costing. Dodging ruthless gangsters, she finds herself on the run
with a creature of immeasurable magical abilities alongside her one-time
friends. Now, Ellinor must relearn to trust the people she once abandoned. She
must put her faith in technology, and her life in the hands of independent
contractors, all while racing to deliver the package before it gets taken by
force, or worse, the creature decides to make an appearance itself.
THIS WAS not the first time Ellinor
Olysha Rask found herself bound and chained, and she very much doubted it would
be her last. This was the longest she had ever been incarcerated, however.
Ellinor leaned back against the wall and
closed her eyes, though it made no difference in the pitch black. She wiggled
against the rough wall, never getting comfortable. The restraints clamped over
her wrists chaffed at her skin. She lost count of the days she’d been locked in
the rank cell, but she supposed it didn’t actually matter how long she’d been
there, only how much longer she’d be staying.
She sighed loudly, her patience long
gone. Not that she had been blessed with an abundance of composure to begin
with, but her restraint had diminished considerably since Misho’s death.
Heaviness settled on her chest and
shoulders as she imagined Misho’s disapproving tsk at her current predicament,
and her chin started to quiver. Gritting her teeth, she knocked her head
against the bumpy wall to focus her thoughts. She always lost control when she
thought about Misho Shimizu, and she didn’t want to lose what little control
she had left. She needed to conserve her energy.
For what? There’s no telling how long
I’ve been here, or who took me. Time to stop waiting.
She hadn’t recognized who grabbed her,
or how they had gotten the drop on her. She had been drinking, of course, but
no more than usual. One minute, Ellinor was meeting with a contact who had
information about the Ashlings she was hunting. Ashlings who needed to answer
for what was done to Misho. The next? She couldn’t remember. The air—her own
power!—had betrayed her. Everything went white and hazy, and a fog rolled over
She sat up straighter against the wall,
breathing deeply, ignoring the aches and pains of her cramped muscles. Whatever
had happened, poisoning or a knock over the head, had left her weak.
Concentrating had been a chore, let alone summoning her magic. She knew she
wasn’t at full strength, but better to do something than continue to wait
around for whoever had nabbed her to remember they had her locked away.
Ellinor had heard of humani, beings like
her, who were strong enough in air magic to blow apart buildings, and who had
the skill to dismantle the most intricate of machines without destroying any of
the delicate parts. Ellinor had never been that strong, nor that finessed with
her talents. She had enough of the talent to make her someone most would shy away
from, and it had been more than enough for her job. Using the air, she could
turn otherwise fatal blows from knives or projectiles away, and coupled with
her own abilities for creating mayhem, her magic had served her well, or well
enough, until Misho died.
Then her power turned her into someone,
something, most didn’t want to talk about. Someone the remainder of her family
distanced themselves from. She lived only to avenge Misho.
The seersha, though . . . now they would
have no trouble using wind to blow apart this cell, no matter how far
underground they’d have to pull the air. They’d be able to use that same
current to wrap themselves in an impenetrable force field then simply sail away
like some cocky bird.
That didn’t mean she couldn’t cause some
Born and raised in Southern California, Chelscey has stayed
within a 60 mile radius of Los Angeles her whole life, something she has been
told is rather unique. She attended the University of Southern California for
both her undergraduate studies and master’s degree, specializing in
Communication Management. Then one day, she moved to New Orleans with her
husband, two cats, and her dog. Getting all 5 of them there from Los Angeles to
New Orleans becoming an incredible adventure in and of itself. And then doing
it again as they returned to Los Angeles two years later was equally as
Chelscey met her husband in high school, embarking on a
journey that could best be described as “your grandparents love
story”. Meaning that she married her high school sweetheart, she has also
been told that this is a terribly romantic story though it all seems rather
common place to her. After they both finished college and began working, they
got married and adopted 2 cats, because Chelscey’s husband loves cats. Chelscey
herself is more of a dog person, but it took them a bit longer to adopt a dog
then it did the cats…
Once upon a time Chelscey also worked in the advertising
industry. She worked on a wide variety of accounts, everything from fast food,
to automotive, and video games. The latter of which was more of her passion as
she had researched and written her master’s thesis on if playing video games
with your romantic partner helped or hurt the relationship (she found it did
In case you haven’t noticed by now, Chelscey is a proud nerd.
She collects the Uncanny X-Men comic book series and plays video games. It made
her uniquely qualified to work in the gaming industry on the advertising side
of the business. And while she still loves gaming, she became disillusioned
with the politics behind advertising and how it affected a medium she considers
to have great creative potential. And while Chelscey has always been a
passionate lover of writing and reading (particularly Fantasy, Science Fiction,
and Historical Fiction) she never thought that she could turn her passion into
a career. But opportunity rarely knocks more than once and Chelscey decided to
answer the door, even without fully knowing what would lay on the other side.
Chelscey is also a big fan of tattoos (she has several
herself) and dying her hair. Currently, Chelscey’s favorite color was her ombre
blue mermaid hair. She felt it was important for you to know this.
