A thrilling new urban fantasy filled with magic and motorcycle gangs from Jennifer Rush, author of the Altered saga--perfect for fans of Beautiful Creatures.
Eighteen-year-old Jemmie Carmichael has grown up surrounded by magic in the quiet town of Hawthorne, New York. In her world, magic users are called "kindled," and Jemmie would count herself among them if only she could cast a simple spell without completely falling apart. It doesn't help that she was also recently snubbed by Crowe, the dangerous and enigmatic leader of the Black Devils kindled motorcycle gang and the unofficial head of their turf.
When the entire kindled community rolls into Hawthorne for an annual festival, a rumor begins spreading that someone is practicing forbidden magic. Then people start to go missing. With threats closing in from every side, no one can be trusted. Jemmie and Crowe will have to put aside their tumultuous history to find their loved ones, and the only thing that might save them is the very flaw that keeps Jemmie from fully harnessing her magic. For all her years of feeling useless, Jemmie may just be the most powerful kindled of all.
I really enjoyed Jennifer Rush’s Altered series when I read it a couple of years ago. It was a super fast read and brought up some really interesting questions about genetic alterations and how far is too far and just because we can do something with science, does that mean we should and when everything falls apart, who can you really trust. I was also a big fan of the characters in that one. So I’m really excited for this new book from her! Not only does it seem like it’ll have great characters and a maybe hate-to-at-least-like relationship, but there’s also magic and motorcycle gangs?!?!?! Sign me up. I haven’t read Beautiful Creatures so I have no idea what that comparison means but it definitely sounds a little bit like Katie McGarry’s Thunder Road series meets The Elementals Trilogy. I’m definitely excited for this one!
