"I never meant to become a witch. But when someone you love dies, logic and reason die with them."
Sebastian Blackwell is your typical high school popular kid: attractive, charming, and a little rebellious. At least he used to be. But when his parents are killed in a freak accident, he goes from cool kid to orphan outcast before the dirt even settles over their graves. Now a shell of his former self, Sebastian realizes what really matters in life and is determined to get it back, no matter the cost. To do it, he’ll have to delve into his family’s darkest secrets, secrets his parents tried to protect him from his whole life.
With a ghost as his only friend, a goth girl his only ally, and a demon prince his only chance, Sebastian sets out on a desperate path of redemption that seems more likely to damn him than to save him. For all power has a price, and Sebastian must decide what he is willing to pay to defy death itself.
About the Author
Growing up in rural Kentucky, she was thoroughly corrupted by a deep love for its rolling countryside, despite the mosquitoes and hay fever. She was instilled with a craving for literature early on, and her parents had to wrestle books away from her at the dinner table. Though she graduated with a dual BA in Chinese and Arabic, having traveled the world she came home and decided to stay there. She currently resides in Louisville, KY with her loving and supportive husband, and their very vocal cat.
With an enormous passion for life, creating things, and discovering the world, Lydia crams her days with all sorts of adventure when she's not working on her next book. She not only loves to play her ocarina (think Zelda), but also enjoys traditional archery, cosplay, larping, and art. She believes dark chocolate and tea are legitimate sources of nutrition, and one day hopes to visit every country in the world.
