In a hidden world of wizards where only men hold the power of magic, one girl arises with the power to change everything, if she isn’t killed first…
Adriana Victoriana Evangelista (Addie), daughter to the High Chancellor of the Wizard’s Council, has always been the perfect wizard girl. She never questions why men possess magical powers and women have no power at all, magical or otherwise. Male wizards blend into the modern human world, leading huge corporations while wizard women are sequestered away.
On her sixteenth birthday, Addie discovers she possesses magic. Under wizard law, she is a desecration. An ancient prophecy surrounds the emergence of a girl magic-wielder, the wizard queen, who is destined to bring about the downfall of the wizard-kin.
Addie has long had a forbidden crush on a human boy who lives in the wizard stronghold, Rory Devlin. As she delves deeper into the dangerous mysteries surrounding her own destiny, she suspects Rory might be more than just human.
Addie’s fate sends her straight into the path of a powerful and evil sorcerer, but the worst danger of all may come from right inside her own home.

I absolutely loved this book! I am now officially a big fan of Hadley Holt’s work. This book was so well written that it grabbed me from the first sentence. I stayed up until I finished all three parts of the serial – I was like – just one more page and then I’ll stop, but I couldn’t stop until it was over. Hadley Holt creates a whole new magical world and it’s a little upside-down, but that’s what makes if unique and interesting. The main character, Addie, really has to grow and she does. I love her relationship with her two best buds, Izzy and Hugo, not to mention her amazing romantic interest, Rory. I feel like I know each one of them and I can’t wait for the next installment in this serial. I am totally hooked. Hadley Holt, get busy writing!!!
Enjoyed this second part of the Wizard Queen story. Lots of action and great characters.
I love this series! Addie is such an engaging heroine. I was drawn to her immediately and feel for her as she goes through her constant challenges. I love the sense of adventure and the themes of a girl coming into her own. Go Addie!
