Thea Winthrop is a Double Seventh, the seventh child of two seventh children. From birth, great things were expected of her, gradually replaced by puzzled disappointment as it became evident her magical abilities are, at most, minimal. Now, with Cheveyo, Thea has begun to weave herself a new magical identity, infused with elements of the original worlds where Cheveyo and others like him walk. But back home, she attends the Academy, the one school on earth for those who, like her, can’t do magic. It is there that Thea realizes that her enemies are hungrier and more dangerous than she thought. What’s more, her greatest strength may be the very powerlessness she has resisted for so long.

But, it’s the 21st Century, and it’s time to take the magic and mayhem back. Loosely based on Grimms, this is an urban fantasy offering you don’t want to miss.
