Angel doesn't remember her magical heritage...but it remembers her.
Start with a struggle revolving around the source of magic. Is it genetic--or is it part of your soul? What if someone was using his powers to run experiments based on a complete misconception of the source of magic?
Throw in a twisted family tree that's rooted in a centuries' old feud, a painting that (literally) holds the key to the truth, a mysterious and talkative beetle, and an Elven rocker who can play the songs of the stars on an electric guitar.
This is the world Angel Mason was born into, thrust out of, and returned to seven years later. To top it off, she must rediscover her identity and save her home from a madman at the same time.
Kat Heckenbach's debut young adult fantasy has earned three awards: Compton Crook (finalist), Grace Awards (YA category finalist), and INDIE Next Generation Book Awards (YA category finalist).
Readers have compared her writing to that of Cornelia Funke and Madeline L'Engle.
Ideal for young teens, older teens, and anyone who loves adventure, mystery, fantasy and magic.

About the Author
She never could give up on the idea that maybe she really was magic, mistakenly placed in a world not her own...but as the years passed, and no elves or fairies carted her away...she realized she was just going to have to create the life of her fantasies.
Now she shares that life with her husband and two kids. Ok, maybe "share" isn't the right word--more like lives that life in her writing and tries her best to be normal the rest of the time...
The boring stuff:
She graduated from the University of Tampa--Magna Cum Laude, B.S. in Biology (yep, a science geek, too).
She spent several years teaching, but never in a traditional classroom--everything from Art to Algebra II (yep, a math geek, too)--and now she homeschools her two kids.
Her writing spans the gamut from inspirational personal essays to dark and disturbing fantasy and horror.
(You didn't honestly expect "romance" did you?)
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a beautiful story. I'm not the biggest fan of fantasy fiction, but I was drawn into Finding Angel the moment I started reading. I was so involved with the story that I actually started dreaming about it! I just could not put this book down until I knew how it ended. I highly recommend Finding Angel to both young and old. I'm sure you'll fall in love with Angel just like I did.
