About this ebook

A fairy tale retelling with a twist! 


After being raised by the meanest fairies in the history of ever, Bryar Rose is now free to live her own life. For the first time, she’s attending West Lake Prep, a regular high school. Well, mostly regular. Some students are actually hidden members of the Magicorum. In other words, they’re really wizards, fairies, or shifters. Bry doesn’t mind, though. She’s thrilled to enjoy all the new experiences of being around normal kids her age, from locker pranks to lunchtime mystery meat. Everything is going along great, except for one thing.


Bry’s dreams about the pyramids of Egypt have gotten darker and more sinister. Every night, she sees her new man Knox and her best friend Elle in danger.


With no other choice, Bry plans to leave school to explore the pyramids on her own. But her new man Knox discovers the scheme and is having none of it. He wants to stay by her side, no matter what. It’s a good thing too, because Bry must solve the mystery of her attraction to the pyramids and soon. Otherwise, it could cost the lives of those she loves most.


And that means not only Knox, but also her best friend Elle.


Perfect for readers who love young adult books with romance, action, adventure, and one-of-a-kind world building. Magicorum characters KNOW they’re stuck in a fairy tale life template… and struggle with the role of fantasy and magic in their future.

I have never read anything by Christina Bauer before and I am ashamed that I didn't know what I was missing. I read this straight through and couldn't put it down. She grabs you, pulls you into a her world, and makes you cherish her characters. You feel their confusion, sadness, hopes, fears, and determination. You find yourself cheering, biting your lip, tensing in anticipation of what comes next. Her story breathes a life of its own and you can easily picture it being the next hit series on TV. I want to go back to the beginning while I wait to find out what happens next. Thank you so much to Christina Bauer, NetGalley, and Monster House Books, LLC, for allowing me the chance to read this story and share my thoughts and opinions with others.

Wow what a book, Christina Bauer has created another series which has become a must buy for me. This book blew me a away with all our heroes in it, but this was definitely Bryer Rose and Knox’s story. One I never saw coming, I thought this would be centred on her trek into schooling west Lake Prep, but that was a small part. This book is centred around the Autumn equinox and tracking down the fountain of magic to strengthen the magic, as it is in danger of dying out. This is an action packed adventured and Bryer learning to let herself love and accept love from Knox. I not going to tell you anymore about this book except to say  I was blown away and this series get better with every book. Christine Bauer has such an incredible imagination that has me addicted to her storytelling.

I started reading Angelbound by Christina Bauer which led me to Wolves and Roses. Which in turn led me to Shifters and Glyphs. I absolutely love Ms. Bauer's writing style and her imagination. I have been a fan of fantasy writing for many years and I will put Ms. Bauer in the company of Terry Brooks, Piers Anthony and other fantasy writers I have enjoyed over the years. This series is a must read. Bryce O'Connor

About the author

Christina Bauer believes that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too. Christina lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.
