Why Did the Bearer of Good Fortune Run Out of Luck? @AuthorMarieMohn Presented by @GoddessFish

Thrilling fantasy, dramatic twists and a stirring love story!
Why did Kaja – a bearer of good fortune – suddenly run out of luck? Shadow creatures lurk
in the dark, one misfortune leads to the next, and her fear of being claimed by the aristocrats
increases by the hour. Furthermore, she is torn between her seaman and the wild wood
wanderer, before whom all warn...
Can she escape her superior opponents? And how will her heart decide?


The rotten door of the workshop resisted her attempts to conquer it. It really shouldn’t be such
an effort to close a damned door! Kaja tore at the knob again and held her foot against it. It

The upper floor, where the living area of her family was located, could be reached by a staircase
on the outside of the brick house. The stairs creaked – as usual – but when she entered the
next level, something moved behind her. Who came to them at this late hour? She couldn’t
see anyone. "Is anyone there?" she called hesitantly into the darkness. It was quiet. Still, the
uncomfortable feeling of not being alone lasted.
Quickly she climbed up the stairs and searched for the matching key on the keychain. Just as
she had found it, something hissed behind her. Startled, she dropped the keys. She turned
around and saw ... nothing. However, a very dark, moving nothing – which could only mean one
thing: a shadow creature!
