Surviving an unprovoked attack by the Damned and defeating the evil warrior Tetron, however, hasn’t guaranteed a happy ending for the family. Still reeling from the loss of his children and plagued by nightmarish images from the Civil War, William must overcome his grief in order to unify his family and prepare them for the impending revenge, certain to be meted out by the Damned. Unexpected peril presents itself in the form of hate and prejudice from an unlikely source—the townspeople the Crew have live lived among for much of their lives. Rumors of witchcraft, unprovoked attacks and an unfortunate reveal of the powers the family struggles to keep hidden threaten to drive the Crew from their home, just when they crave stability and peace the most. Despite all of the upheaval in their lives, the members of the Crew press on, facing the challenges to come with fortitude, tenacity and a profound love for one another. Dark days lie ahead, ones that will challenge William and his family’s sanity and make them question whether life is even worth living anymore. In the face of unspeakable tragedy, will the Crew rebound so they can seize the opportunity, unexpectedly lain before them, to learn of their ancient lineage and convoluted history? Does the appearance of a mysterious, but alluring, stranger spell disaster and death…or can she provide the answers the Crew have sought for so long to find the source of their mysterious powers? Even if the pieces to the puzzle all fall into place, will William’s family be able to stave off the Damned and prevent the decimation of the family they hold so dear?

A Fine Line: The Ancients: Part I Reviews
J.C Brennan drops us right into the heart of the action with the second book of her intricately plotted series. With clever concepts and written in a direct and dramatic style, I was captivated from the start.““The creature had the eyes of a demon, and they blazed a deep, menacing yellow. I couldn't look into them for any length of time for fear of losing my immortal soul.”” Yes...there are juicy elements of horror in this fabulous fantasy along with action, adventure, and suspense which ratchets up beautifully throughout the novel. Bring on the next! *Note - There is sufficient back story for most fantasy enthusiasts to catch up with the story, but I will definitely pick up the first book and read it during my next holiday.

What an unusual story! I accidentally read this book out of sequence. It is actually the second in the series, but there was enough back story at the beginning to catch me up and I had no trouble following. A Fine Line: The Ancients part one had an intriguing plot. I don't think I've ever read anything quite like it, and I'm an avid reader. I love historical fiction and this book was hist fic with a supernatural twist. The Healthaway family characters were relatable and interesting, and their saga had multiple unforseen turns and surprises. I read the entire book in two days. Now I need to go backward and read the first book in the series. Well done, Ms. Brennan.
The Crew do their best to protect others from the Damned, and they live in hope that nothing else will disturb their otherwise peaceful existence. But when ignorance and fear chase them from their home and force them to move, and one of them is brutally murdered in their new home, they're faced with the fact that more changes are in store for them. This is an interesting supernatural tale. I've never come across these myths approached in quite this way before, and the twists and turns kept me reading. All-in-all, a fun story with plenty of magic, mystery, and romance to keep readers engaged.
I'm not sure what to say about this one...I absolutely loved it! It was an odd read, but it was so good. I read this one first because I had gotten confused on the order, which is a downside, but it didn't matter. I was able to still enjoy the book and can't wait to read more by the author.Imaginative Dreams (Amber McCarty) was given for an honest review.
“A Fine Line: The Ancients, Part I” is the second book in the “A Fine Line” series, a historical fantasy novel.Read full review in the 2015 October issue of InD'tale Magazine.
Reading about the Healthaway family or crew has been quite an adventure. Not just because of the stories surrounding their struggles of trying to live a normal life while also being supernatural but also because I read them out of order. Despite me reading the books out of order, each book stands more than fine on its own.The leader of the family or crew; William has to juggle a lot of events going on in his life. He must protect his crew from the Dammed, he feels guilty about the loss of his children and not to mention that new people or new supernatural evils want he and his crew dead. Despite all this, Williams and his crew band together and try their best at surviving the evils surrounding them while also enjoying the good side of life. But if the pressures from the evils around them become too much for the Healthaways to handle, will the fate of an immortal race disappear?William Healthaway is really an interesting character. He has supernatural powers of course but he also has many humanistic qualities. I’d say he’s probably more human than many of the literary characters that I have read over the years. Here’s why; he does literally whatever he can to protect his loved ones and is willing to put himself at risk. At times, I feel like sometimes the pressure of him being a good person gets too much for him and I’m sometimes afraid that he’ll switch to the evil side just to take some pressure off of himself. But he doesn’t because the love for his family and goodness in the world are too much for him to give it all up. I personally believe that this is the moral to the series; don’t give up your beliefs just to ease the pressure of protecting them.
