“Imagine a version of modern New York City where the three magical races of the Magicorum (shifters, fairies, and wizards) are celebrities walking among humans. Magicorums always follow a fairy-tale template, and Bryar Rose should be following her Sleeping Beauty path. But she’s obsessed with code- breaking ancient Egyptian papyrus scrolls and loathes her intended Prince Charming—a hedge-fund jerk she’s supposed to marry this upcoming weekend—and the only woodland creature she finds cute is an unbelievably hot werewolf named Knox.

“When her schoolteacher turns out to be a zombie-mummy hybrid out to kill her, Bryar and Knox suspect that Bryar may have untapped magic of her own. In this series starter, Bauer’s unique voice blends magical fantasy, swooning romance, and a bucketful of teenage sass in dual narratives from Bryar and Knox. The world and the magic are fresh, the antagonist delightfully creepy, and Bryar’s snarky inner monologuing brings welcome humor throughout.”
