Twenty-two-year-old Madeline Bennet is certain of three things: she’s sick and tired of being kidnapped, her love life is a royal mess, and something is wrong with her magic.
Madeline is fabled to be the only woman alive who can open the thresholds to Aparia, but there’s a tiny problem—she can’t see the magic to unlock them, and time is running out. The shadow creatures are creeping out of hiding once more, the Entitled are furious she slipped through their fingers, and the Royal Guild has discovered her existence.
At least her knights have her back… mostly. Eric keeps disappearing, Gray is half in love with the tracker who followed them home from Vegas, the tracker is half in love with Jonathan, and Rafe… well, no one ever knows what the Obsidian knight is thinking.
It’s clear Madeline must shove thoughts of romance aside and focus on learning more about her Obsidian magic, but the answers she’s seeking seem to lead to more questions. The most chilling of all: did she link her magic with the wrong knight?
The Obsidian Queen series is a contemporary fantasy full of magic and humor, perfect for readers who enjoy swoony romance and sparking chemistry.
