Genre(s): Historical, Fantasy, Teen, Young Adult

Description: Enter a realm of magick mirroring Europe in the late 1930s, locked in a repressive government where a girl struggles to see beyond prejudice and a boy has lost faith in humanity. The era jives with jazz and swing, war divides the land and its people, and the Monarch seeks any with the gifts of magick – the Mages.

Fifteen-year-old Claire Royce hates magick, but not as much as her ruthless king’s war. As fate would have it, she ends up stuck in the company of a powerful young Mage named Walter Tully. When they learn the Monarch is searching for The Sire, the creator of all magick, they know someone must stop him. But are they really up for such an enormous task?”
