fall into magic
Title: Fair to Hope
Release Date: August 30, 2016
Every day two groups secretly war for control of souls; a war that fuels the chosen for the Final Battle. A destined death-fight between best friends for the last soul and the fate of the world.
Velma had lived two lives; her first as a former foster kid abandoned by her parents, her second as an unlikely recruit into a secret order full of ritual, lore and punching that satisfied her need for retribution. Her fifteen year old self had given up on hope, but after three years with the Taram, she’d found more than just family, she’d found her life’s purpose.
That is, until she is surprisingly named Kachina, the fabled chosen empowered to fight the last battle for the fate of the world. Because having to kill someone she loves was never part of the bargain, even if it means saving everyone else from damnation.
Attempting the impossible – building a normal life free from the pull of the Taram seems like the only answer to her prayers. Except her best friend, the other Kachina, is coming. The legend is clear that one of them must die. Velma will have to weigh the cost of her life against a world that’s constantly betrayed her, and quite literally decide if she’ll be damned in dying, and take the whole world with her.

Don’t fall in love with the Doomed Queen.
ALEC KLADIVO: Soldier. Hunter. Fool.
When Alec was a boy, the border posts failed, and Ravagers infiltrated their sector. Through sacrificing his sister, he saved his city and gained the respect of Sector One’s Regent. Ever since that day, he has served his sector with unfailing loyalty and nobility. Until he met her.
ADIRA CHOVANEK: Thief. Witch. Doomed Queen.
In Sector One, there is no greater commodity than a witch. Which is exactly why each and every one of them are in hiding. Should they be discovered by the hunters, they will suffer one of two fates—both of which end in death—unless they can kill a Ravager and bring forth an heir for the sector’s Regent. The only problem is, the Regent is sterile, and would sooner exile a Doomed Queen than admit that to himself or anyone else. This is Adira's fate.
THIRTEEN: The number of days before Adira’s death.
Alec has given Adira just under two weeks to turn herself in and accept her role as the only person who might be able to save their failing sector from certain extinction. And he’s spent each and every one of those days trying to convince her it is the right thing to do. But what happens once he’s finally persuaded her, only to find out he’d been mistaken all along?
Read what fans of The 100, Under the Dome, and Wayward Pines are hoping will be the next hit television drama.
