Full Name: Antonia Serafina Korelli
From: Innía, World of Jordinia
Featured in: The Red Pearl by C.K. Brooke
Status: Runaway priestess-in-training
Distinguishing characteristics: Blonde hair, blue eyes, a doll-like appearance. Scar on her shoulder. Admirably brave in most cases—except when it comes to her debilitating fear of dogs.
Motivations: Antonia will do whatever it takes to make her dream come true. Refusing to be relegated to eternal chastity and service as a priestess, she escapes her coven to chase her dreams of true love and adventure in the land of Elat.
Antonia is a young woman on a mission: escape the coven and run away to Elat. There’s only one problem. The morning she breaks free, she encounters a man being held up at gunpoint. Doing the only thing she can think of, she saves his life by giving the gunslingers what they demand.
When the thieves ride off, the man Antonia has saved is inexplicably furious with her. She can’t understand why. What could she have given them that was more important to him than his life? Furthermore, he now refuses to let her go until she’s helped him get it back. Is the ungrateful stranger and his harebrained hunt just an inconvenient diversion from her journey to Elat? Or, perhaps, could this be the adventure she was seeking all along?
