Things look a little different around here, don't they? The dazzling blue is in honor of Outcast Shadows: Styx Trilogy Book Two! It's due out in March, 2017, but like I did with Miscast Spells, I want to give you little glimpses of the book's plot and characters before the release. This week is the back-of-the-book teaser. Also, shout-out to M. Weaver, who helped me with one particularly sticky sentence (She's also a writer. Check out the novel she's working on here). Anyway, without further ado, here is your first look at Outcast Shadows:
Airships, experiments, immortal beasts—a maid’s work is never done!
After being betrayed by a goblin they thought was an ally, Bostwick and Emmaline must help Queen Delilah collect the map of Styx, which lies scattered across Ataxia. Aided by a flying machine, they encounter corrupt dictators, clumsy goat girls, immortal beasts, and—most frightening of all—a love potion gone horribly wrong.
Meanwhile, Millicent finds herself in the mysterious, monochromatic city of Chiaroscuro. Sebastian reveals that the city is in danger, and he needs her to cast a spell from her old magic books—a spell that she alone knows. But who wrote those books in the first place, and what do they have to do with Chiaroscuro? To explain, Sebastian shows Millicent visions of life at Melieh’s Academy of Magic hundreds of years ago. As she learns more about the school, Sebastian’s past, and the truth behind the test that barred her from the Academy, she must make a choice that could mean life or death.
