An orphaned girl. A mysterious new world. One connected fate.

When Beatrice Tidal is shipped off to summer camp by her foster parents, she expects the worst, but she does not expect to find herself pursued by a shadowy demon through a strange magical land where she must uncover the mystery of her past and rise to the challenges of her future.

Worse, Obellius Kalaar, usurper to the throne of Eslura, will stop at nothing to find Beatrice and prevent her from gathering the Sacred Rulers to reunite the kingdom. Now Obellius has escaped from his island prison confinements and is determined to regain his throne.

Can Beatrice help these powerful Rulers and save Eslura from Obellius, or will the shadow of darkness fall forever over this sacred land?

Eslura's Calling is the first book in the Sacred series, a young adult portal fantasy. Steeped in friendship, adventure, and furry creatures, Eslura's Calling is a thrilling beginning to a fantastic new series.

Perfect for fans of The Chronicles of Narnia, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and Studio Ghibli!


If you loved Chronicles of Narnia, this book would become your next favorite book. There are talking creatures, a world in danger, two unlikely people who become fast friends. One is an orphan but is determined to know where she came from. Beatrice is forced to head off to summer camp for a week by her foster parents. While there, she is bullied by several girls from her school, and the counselor Reagan befriends her. Desperate to be away from the bullies, Beatrice runs into the woods, and Reagan follows and then ends up in a magical world called Eslura. Now Beatrice and Reagan are intertwined to save Eslura from a dark force. I loved every minute of this story.


About M.C. Beeler

M.C. Beeler, raised in northern Indiana, lives in a small city just close enough to be considered part of the Chicago-land area. A student at Marquette University, she is studying business with a concentration in Marketing and Entrepreneurship in hopes to use her skills to not only help herself, but other authors pursue their writing careers.

On the off chance that she isn’t stationed at her writing desk, she can be found glued to whatever Nintendo console she can get her hands on working to sustain her self-proclaimed title of “Pokémon Master”. You might also find her snuggling with her golden doodle or hitting the slopes during the winter season (aka her favorite season) either snowboarding or skiing.
