Amy McNulty is an editor and author of books that run the gamut from YA speculative fiction to contemporary romance. A lifelong fiction fanatic, she fangirls over books, anime, manga, comics, movies, games, and TV shows from her home state of Wisconsin. When not reviewing anime professionally or editing her clients' novels, she's busy fulfilling her dream by crafting fantastical worlds of her own.
Okay, maybe it's not that big of a secret. At least not in Mystic Willow Bay, a town where practically every paranormal creature lives.
Still, I have plenty of secrets. Like the fact that I suck at casting spells, which is a huge problem considering I'm a witch. I can also talk to dead bodies and am secretly working on a spell that will hopefully revive my sister from the dead.
Other than that, I'm just an average witch who spends most of my time going to school, practicing spells, and hanging out with Hunter, a powerful wizard who can cast spells way better than I can , Opal, a powerful faerie, and Peyton, a sometimes cranky but amusing vampire.
Yep, that's my life in a boring magical spell.
Or well, I thought so. But when I cross paths with a cocky and annoyingly sexy demon, I realize nothing about my life is what it appears to be.
Volume 1 in the Mystic Willow Bay Series.
Terror. Callousness. Denial. Rebellion. How the four teenage children of leaders in the duchy and the neighboring empire of Hanaobi choose to adapt to their nefarious parents’ whims is a matter of survival.
Soldier Rohesia, the pitiless daughter of the ruthless duke. Thief Fastello, the compassionate son of the “king” of the raiding nomads. Orphan Cateline, the pious, myopic follower of the austere leader of her religion. Royal heir Kojiro, the hypersensitive son of the bloodthirsty Hanaobian empress.
When the paths of these four young adults cross, they must rely on one another for survival—but the love of even a malevolent guardian is hard to leave behind.
Fans of the twists and turns in Six of Crows and the compelling character drama in the works of Sarah J. Maas will love this YA version of Game of Thrones meets Marvel Comics' Runaways that readers are calling "intense and brutal and just a whirlwind of a ride."
