Gillianne “Gilly” Wilder has an eye for design and big dreams of taking on the fashion industry. After years of scrimping and saving, she’s a few paychecks away from her first semester at Seattle’s prestigious school of design. But before her first class begins, her small Washington hometown takes a bloody turn when a dead body washes ashore. And Gilly can’t help but get distracted by the handsome reporter who comes to investigate.
Things not to do when you find out you’re a wizard:
#1 Do not destroy your dad’s apartment with magical fire. You WILL NOT get the security deposit back.
#2 Do not form an alliance with the guy who is trying to murder you. This will end badly.
#3 Do not drag the girl you’re desperately in love with into your wizard mess. You risk her watching you fail miserably.
#4 Under no circumstances should you get in the middle of an epic magical battle. Death will happen. Lots of death and bad things.
I found a magic cell phone, opened an app I shouldn’t have, burned down my high school’s theatre, and it was all downhill from there. A seer guarded by the undead is my only hope for keeping my mom alive, and I’m pretty sure the cops are after me for destroying my dad’s penthouse.
