<strong>When a rogue 19-year-old witch is recruited to help guard an ancient magical Bestiary, mystery and danger ensue...</strong><br />_____________________________________________<br /><br /><strong><em>Being an empath has its advantages.</em></strong><br /><br />Harley Merlin can sense people鈥檚 emotions, among other things. It鈥檚 how she snagged her first job pinpointing cheaters at a casino.<br /><br />But she has no clue where she got these freakish powers because she spent her childhood jumping from home to home in the foster system, and her father left her with nothing more than a cryptic note.<br /><br />Then she crosses paths with a terrifyingly real monster. Which is when a mysterious and annoyingly arrogant young warlock named Wade Crowley steps in, introducing her to a hidden world of beasts, magicals, and covens riddled with secrets鈥攁s well as clues about her murky past.<br /><br />Whether she likes it or not, this new world is where she belongs. But after a disturbing twist of events, Harley quickly realizes that her past is darker than she could ever have imagined.<br /><br />And that someone in the coven is out for her blood.<br /><br />With the help of Wade and her new friends, she must figure out who the traitor is and why they鈥檙e targeting her... Before the human and magical worlds dangerously collide.<br /><br /><strong>Potter fans, welcome to an exciting new world.</strong><br /><br />_____________________________________________<br /><br /><strong>*What Early Readers Are Saying:*</strong><br /><br /><em>"I love the Harry Potter series.

<b>Two roads lead to Mount Hope. None leads out. T</b><b>here's no place to run in a community that's been taken--and is being intentionally kept--off the grid. </b><br /> A small southern town was evacuated after a freak power-plant accident. As the first anniversary of the mishap approaches, some residents are allowed to return past the national guard roadblocks. <br />Mount Hope natives Maggie and Jordan quickly discover that their hometown is not as it was before. Downed cellular networks fail to resume service. Animals savagely attack humans. And the damaged power plant, where Jordan's father is an engineer, is under military lockdown. <br />As friends and family morph into terrifying strangers, the Maggie and Jordan increasingly turn to each other. Their determination to discover who--or what--has taken control of Mount Hope soon has them in the cross-hairs of a presence more sinister than any they could have imagined. <br /><br /> <br /><br /><br /> <br /><br />

<p><b>A speculative thriller in the vein of <i>The Handmaid鈥檚 Tale </i>and <i>The Power</i>. Optioned by Universal and Elizabeth Banks to be a major motion picture!</b></p><p><b>鈥淎 visceral, darkly haunting fever dream of a novel and an absolute page-turner. Liggett鈥檚 deeply suspenseful book brilliantly explores the high cost of a misogynistic world that denies women power and does it with a heart-in-your-throat, action-driven story that鈥檚 equal parts horror-laden fairy tale, survival story, romance, and resistance manifesto.

That鈥檚 why they鈥檙e banished for their sixteenth year, to release their magic into the wild so they can return purified and ready for marriage. But not all of them will make it home alive. </p><p>Sixteen-year-old Tierney James dreams of a better life鈥攁 society that doesn鈥檛 pit friend against friend or woman against woman, but as her own grace year draws near, she quickly realizes that it鈥檚 not just the brutal elements they must fear. It鈥檚 not even the poachers in the woods, men who are waiting for a chance to grab one of the girls in order to make a fortune on the black market. Their greatest threat may very well be each other. </p><p>With sharp prose and gritty realism, <i>The Grace Year</i> examines the complex and sometimes twisted relationships between girls, the women they eventually become, and the difficult decisions they make in-between.</p>
