a revolutionary supernatural thriller
Maggie Stuart is only 13 when she has her first life-altering encounter with the occult. Kidnapped, endangered, pushed to the limits of her young strength, she discovers her own innate supernatural powers — and then the courage to turn her back on both them and a world where she finally feels at home.
You’ve never entered a world like this. Follow Maggie Stuart through her adolescence from the turmoil of youth into adulthood as she grows from teens into her thirties. Bridging the divide between young adult and adult fiction, the Blood & Magic series takes you deep into the seminal years of Maggie’s life as she struggles, fails, and finally fights her way to understanding her place in the world.
Book One ✪ The Last Rite
Gifted with magic beyond comprehension before she has even learned to navigate the difficult waters of adolescence, Maggie finds herself powerful and powerless simultaneously, a pawn in an ancient game of supremacy.
Featuring illustrations by the author, The Last Rite is a moody, dark tale of temptation and terror.
412 pages, trade paperback
Book Two ✪ The Red Ring
Now in high school, Maggie’s situation at home hasn’t gotten any easier. Neither have the choices she is forced to make when a sinister force infiltrates the lives of her allies from her previous adventures.
What’s more, those forces seem determined to do the absolute worst: to block Maggie from participating in what she hopes might be a way back into that occult world that entices and terrifies her in equal measure, but which she can’t live without.

But there are more surprises in store for Maggie, some longed for and some that will tear at both her sense of self and her ambitions for the future.
