Synopsis: When Angus MacBain finds that a Sea Hag has cast a deadly spell on Vanora’s father, he must once again set aside his life in the outside world to plunge into danger to save his friend’s father. But when he seeks out Fane, advisor to the MacBain Kings, Angus discovers that Vanora’s father is not the only one in dire peril. Now with two souls in mortal danger, Angus and Vanora must face the unknown challenges of Fingal’s Cave alone this time—without the aid of his trusted advisor. But what new and dreadful dangers lurk in the Hall of Kings? Armed with only the ancient weapon of the MacBain Kings, the heirloom amber eyeglass, Angus is about to find out.
Excerpt from Angus MacBain and the Agate Eyeglass:
Vanora’s eyes went wide. She turned slowly and pointed a shaky finger at the empty chair. “I just sat on someone’s lap.”
“What are you talking about?"
“I mean, there’s someone sitting in that chair!”
Angus sighed. “This was no time for joking around. I think you need a new prescription for your glasses.”
“See for yourself.” Vanora patted the chair. “Feel right there. A perfect set of legs.”
Angus hobbled closer, cautiously leaned forward, and touched the seat. Beneath his fingertips, he felt a warm pair of legs covered in a fleece material. Angus jerked his hand back.
Vanora crossed her arms. “See, I told you.”
 GUEST POST: Why Vanora is my favorite support character

Vanora is a very strong willed girl. She will often open her mouth and say whatever comes to mind. She sets her eyes on something and goes for it. She is smart, has common sense, is intuitive, charming, honest and most of all, loyal to her friends. Vanora is a methodical ‘out of the box’ thinker. She bases her decisions first on facts and history. She remembers all of the information passed down to her from her father, who is a crypto-zoologist, and heeds his wisdom. Once she has come to a conclusion she sets it in concrete. Rarely will she change her opinion, but she also is humble enough to know when she is incorrect and will step backward in her thinking process to reevaluate with the new information that has been given to her. Vanora is inventive and finds creative ways of doing things. She is very competitive and enjoys challenging her friends to mental duals. She loses gracefully and doesn't flaunt a win. Vanora has the gift of seeing people for who they really are. She doesn't judge someone by their appearance or background, but is also wise enough to check out a person’s true intentions before becoming a friend. Having been raised only by her father, Vanora is very close to her dad. Since she was the only girl in the house, Vanora taught herself how to cook and takes care of those around her. One of my favorite character traits that Vanora possesses is her loyalty to her friends and family.
