For Maia Whitney, life after the Great War is dull, monotonous, and drab. Nursing soldiers in the bloody fields of France hadn't been easy, but it was better than life at home, standing in her sisters' shadows. There seems no chance for a change until the night she witnesses a murder in the woods.

The last thing Magic Intelligence Agent Lennox Davies needs is this outspoken, independent lady crashing his investigation. Bad enough that a murder happened on his watch; much less that she had to see it happen. He works alone, and he does not have time for Miss Maia Whitney's interference.

But as Maia's own magical talent blossoms and danger thickens around the two with every step they take, before long Len and Maia must rely on each other in a fashion neither has ever done before. If they can't learn to work together, England itself might topple. Even worse, if Maia doesn't learn to control her magic soon, she might do more to destroy them even than their shadowy enemy.

Can they set aside their stubbornness and self-reliance in time to save themselves--and all England?

About the Author

E.L. Bates is an independently-published writer of fantasy and adventure. Heavily influenced by the likes of Lloyd Alexander, Agatha Christie, Susan Cooper, Dorothy L Sayers, Diana Wynne Jones, Brian Jacques, and Ellis Peters, she specializes in combining magic and mischief, usually resulting in mayhem all around.

She also writes historical fiction under the penname Louise Bates. These stories tend to be much quieter, focusing more on ordinary people coming of age in extraordinary times. Her biggest influences for these tales are L.M. Montgomery, Elizabeth Gaskell, and Charles Dickens.

When not writing, Louise teaches her two children at home. In her free moments, she enjoys quilting, ice dancing, and puttering about the kitchen. She is usually seen with a cup of tea in hand, and keeps a stash of dark chocolate hidden in her desk for emergency inspiration.

Perhaps as a result of reading and writing so many adventures, she can’t help but feel that life is best lived with a sense of anticipation, seeking adventure around every corner, looking for the magic that still lurks in the hidden places of the world, waiting for those with the eyes to see it.
