Reads to Sink Your Fangs Into

Celebrating Diversity! Paranormal and Fantasy Reads featuring Characters of Color

Adrienne Morales wants nothing more than to avoid spells and sorcery. Her powers as an enchantress make that impossible. Every few days she must release the magic gathering around her, or it’ll steal her sanity.

When a firebreathing psychopath controlled by enchantment tries to burn down her craft store, Adrienne unleashes her powers to stop him. Unfortunately, her battle has a witness - Adrienne’s business partner. Turns out he’s a Void - immune to magic - and sworn to a Union that executes rogue magic users.

Now Adrienne must capture a rogue enchanter before the Voids decide she's too dangerous to live. But Voids aren’t the worst thing chasing her.
