by
Helene Opocensky

 

Genre:
Middle Grade, YA Fantasy

 

 

Corbin,
a powerful shapeshifting young mage, is just beginning to learn to
flex and harness his magical powers. When he hears that a young
witch, who doesn’t know that her strangeness is due to magic, has
run away for fear of being institutionalized for a second time, he
knows that he has to help his friends find her so that she can learn
to celebrate what makes her different rather than fear it.
 

 

What
he doesn’t know is that finding her will snowball him into a
position where he again feels obligated to his scheming former
mentor, Max Grobian. Nor does he know that Max will, once more, try
to manipulate him into betraying her daughter Lorelei, a girl Corbin
feels heart-bound to, yet fears to fully love.

How
could Corbin possibly do what he was supposed to do?

 

After
Corbin’s mother died, Maxim Moritz Grobian took him, penniless
orphan that he was, under his wing and taught him the magic that was
their heritage. Corbin owed Max everything, and now Max had given him
a mission. Corbin was to bring Max’s estranged daughter to New York.
Lorelei was the only one, Max insisted, that could use the
Heartstone, a crystal of phenomenal power, to keep mages safe from
the Inquisitors that hunted them and allow mages to finally take
their rightful place in the world.

 

A
worthy goal, thought Corbin initially, but now that he had actually
met Lorelei all he really wanted to do was to run for the hills. Both
afraid of hurting her and endangering himself, he needed to stay away
from her, not befriend her to do Max’s bidding. Besides, his
instructions were more than to just befriend her. He was supposed to
make her fall in love with him.

 

There
was no way, absolutely no way he was going to do that – not after
what she had told him.
