Welcome to the Emily's Trial page. Emily's Trial is Book 2 of The Akasha Chronicles. In Emily's Trial, Emily is now 16 and navigating her first crush. Will her desire to win the affections of her crush cause her to bow to temptation and use her powers in a way she shouldn't? And will her friendships survive her choices?

I created the trailer for Emily's Trial myself. What do you think?

Music is a huge inspiration for my writing. Sometimes songs inspire scenes or chapters (or even whole books!).

In Emily's Trial, Emily and friends accidentally end up in a world where nightmares come true. I listened to a lot of spooky music from movie soundtracks to get me in the mood to write the book. But there's also romantic elements. "To Have and Not to Hold" by Madonna captures what Emily feels at the beginning of the book - crushing on someone who seems unattainable. Here are some of the tunes that inspired Emily's Trial. Check it:


From Chapter 1:
The Apocalypse didn't start with four horsemen, harbingers of the horror to come. It didn't start with a plague, or pestilence, or even zombies rising from the dead.
It came slowly, and without warning. It crept up on people in the shadows, no more than a vague darkness that spread like an unseen cancer.
And it wasn't set into action by a divine hand. A teenage girl was the catalyst for the End Times.

I should know. I'm the one that started it.


5 Star: "The detail in the story made it so real. I pictured every scene as if I was there.  I could not put the book down! Natalie has a very creative imagination and I was impressed.  It has a lot of adventure and action and I loved the characters. This story had a little more of a love interest thing going on than book 1 (which I liked) … This book leaves you with a huge cliffhanger- something I usually do not like- but I was ok with it in this book. It leaves you wanting much more and I cannot wait for book 3!!  A great read and job done by Natalie!!! - Virginia Tesi Carey for YA Book Addict

5 Star: "Really enjoying this series!  I love the way the author develops and 'grows' her characters in these books. The author uses great imagery and you feel like you are there with the characters and feel/see/hear everything along with them. I can't wait to see where the author takes this next! I rate this a 5/5. I completely enjoyed it!  Definitely read Emily's House first and 'meet' the characters so you can watch them evolve!" - Ashley, from Ashley's Bookshelf Blog

5 Star: "I can't say enough about this series! I love it and I love how Emily is evolving in each book and becoming more and more like an adult." - Tee, from Diary of a Book Addict blog
