In one summer Brinley has gone from small town girl to Magemother, a powerful figure in the magical kingdom of Aberdeen. Now she must find the missing mages and restore their power before the evil festering in the Wizard's Ire has a chance to escape. Meanwhile her newest mage, Hugo, is drawn into a battle for his soul that may just tear him apart.
The Paradise Twin is the second book in Austin J. Bailey's Magemother series: an epic middle-grade fantasy adventure series with witches, shapeshifters, and cliffhangers, and awesome kids (There are no boring adults in this book!).

Interview with the Author:
Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?
A - Because the Magemother books are fast and fun, and I guarantee you'll never forget the friends you find inside them. Each of the books is a different experience, but each one is worth your time. And I'm not just saying that because I wrote them. I've also read a TON of Fantasy.
If you like fun, kid-friendly books with lots of magic and a plot that twists and turns, you'll get a kick out of this series.
Q - So, what makes the Magemother series so special?
A - A few different things. When I set out to write the Magemother series I wanted to write the types of books that I love to read. My top picks are usually fantasy books. I'm well into my 20's now and I still love reading the middle grade bestsellers. Especially ones with a good bit of mystery, a few surprises, and lots of laughs.
The Magemother books have a good mix of these things. They mostly focus on the children's fantasy / teen fantasy adventure genre's over all, with some coming of age and mystery aspects thrown in for good measure.
Overall the Magemother series is designed to invite you into another wonderful fantasy universe alongside a set of unforgettable characters.
Q - What order should I read the books in?
A - I would suggest this order:
- The Mage and the Magpie
- The Empty Throne (Novella)
- The Paradise Twin
- The Bridge to Nowhere (coming soon)
Q - Which one was your favorite to write?
A - That's a tough one. The Empty Throne was fun because Tabitha is such a wonderfully strange and quirky character, and I really had a blast giving her her own adventure. That said, The Paradise Twin is my favorite so far. The characters really come alive in that book, especially Hugo, who has some serious demons to wrestle with. There is also some great plot twists and comedy in that one, if I do say so myself.
