Things She’s Seen by Pat Esden

Release Date: October 22nd 2019 by Kensington Publishing Corp.
Pages: 304
Genres: Adult, Paranormal

The coven’s under investigation. Its future is in peril. And for one troubled young psychic, the coming battle will threaten her newfound freedom—and brings back a dangerous desire . . .

Exploited as a child medium, Emily Adams escaped to grow up on the streets—and hit rock-bottom. She took shelter with the prestigious Northern Circle, intent on staying only long enough to get back on her feet. But the Circle is still reeling from a devastating supernatural attack and betrayal. And vengeful High Council of Witches investigator Gar Remillard is determined to make Em surrender the truth—and disband the Circle forever.

When Em’s psychic ability allows her to see Gar is haunted by a formidable ghost, her attempts to free him challenge Gar’s rugged French Canadian heart and rancorous loup-garou instincts. But even as their new alliance and past connection kindles into raging desire, a malevolent force rises up to destroy them—the Circle and even the High Council.

With all she’s grown to love on the line, Em must draw on her darkest nightmares and alliances with the dead to outwit and out magic a force who can imprison souls with a flick of the fingers and command legions of wraiths with one word. . .


Em is the main character in THINGS SHE’S SEEN (Northern Circle Coven #2). Em was exploited as a child psychic medium, but escaped as a teenager to live on the streets. While on the run, she and her lover, Alice, hung out behind the scenes at the Royal Palm Theater in Tampa. Em made spare cash by giving the actors messages from their deceased mentors and grandparents. Alice read cards for a living. Often times, they’d spend the night in the closed theater, drinking and goofing around on the stage.

Late one Halloween night, after the actors and employees had left the theater, Alice got out her tarot cards and did a one card reading for Em. Just a single card, drawn as they sat centerstage with a bottle of cheap wine, a bag of candy corn, and only a candle for light.

The drawn card depicted a woman petting a lion, controlling it with compassion and composure rather than force. An infinity symbol floated in the air above the woman’s head.

“The Strength Card,” Alice said. “It symbolizes courage, confidence, and passion. The triumph of intelligence over brute strength, and morality over evil. Calming inner storms of doubt, leads to becoming the true master of your own mind and abilities, and control over all aspects of your world. Heroic. Just and righteous.”

Em laughed. “The cards sure missed the mark this time. Heroic? Confident? Definitely, not me.”

“That’s where you’re wrong. The card is you—on all levels.” Alice’s eyes brightened, glistening and full of innuendo. “The card also indicates a person who has an adventurous and unconventional romantic life.”

Heat washed Em’s face. She leaned in, pushed back a stray curl of dark hair from Alice’s face, and kissed her cheek gently. “That part is true, for sure.”

As Alice put the tarot cards away and they then finished the bottle of wine, Em didn’t begin to realize just how true the reading would prove to be. But years later she would recall it, when a haunted man returned to her life and she received a very different one card draw from Alice. A card revealed to her in a nightmare. 

The Death card.


Pat Esden would love to say she spent her childhood in intellectual pursuits. The truth is she was fonder of exploring abandoned houses and old cemeteries. When not out on her own adventures, she can be found in her northern Vermont home writing stories about brave, smart women and the men who capture their hearts.

She is the author of the contemporary fantasy Dark Heart series from Kensington Books, and the Northern Circle Coven series. Her short fiction has appeared in a number of publications, including Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show, the Mythopoeic Society's Mythic Circle, George Scither's Cat Tales Anthology, and the Fragments of Darkness anthology.
