From the Editor

You know a hero when you read one. The same holds true for authors when they meet their characters, and author Steve McHugh could not wait to introduce his latest hero, Layla Cassidy—or, rather, Layla could not wait. She arrived ready to star in her own urban fantasy trilogy before Steve finished his successful Hellequin series.

I’m happy Steve listened to her, because her story is an infectious one. When we meet Layla, she is leaving her past behind for a blank slate at university. Like any memorable hero, Layla possesses personal demons; the problem is that one such demon is real and bestows supernatural powers to Layla. Against the dark allure of her new strength, she must not only persevere but unravel the terrible history of her family. Also, she may have to save the world. Welcome to college, Layla.

Sure, this is fantasy, but the cast of characters around Layla feels real: Chloe and Jared are her two closest friends and yet they harbour secrets. Layla’s parents are out of the picture—but wait: to say more would be to incur Layla’s wrath, and in this book she must learn to control her anger and use her powers to battle mythical creatures like ogres and werewolves. It turns out there is another realm of magic beyond our world (so vast that it crosses over into Steve’s Hellequin Chronicles), and Layla is just the hero it needs. Now all you have to do is meet her.

Product description

Product Description

From Steve McHugh, the bestselling author of The Hellequin Chronicles, comes a new urban fantasy series packed with mystery, action, and, above all, magic.

Layla Cassidy has always wanted a normal life, and the chance to put her father’s brutal legacy behind her. And in her final year of university she’s finally found it. Or so she thinks.

But when Layla accidentally activates an ancient scroll, she is bestowed with an incredible, inhuman power. She plunges into a dangerous new world, full of mythical creatures and menace—all while a group of fanatics will stop at nothing to turn her abilities to their cause.

To protect those she loves most, Layla must take control of her new powers…before they destroy her. All is not yet lost—there is a light shining, but Layla must survive long enough to see it.

About the Author

Steve McHugh is the author of the popular Hellequin Chronicles. He lives in Southampton on the south coast of England with his wife and three young daughters. When not writing or spending time with his kids, he enjoys watching movies, reading books and comics, and playing video games.
