About Raye Wagner
RAYE WAGNER hates writing bios. She’d much rather tell you a story. She’s partial to fantasy, with dragons or magic or something so she can lie and not feel guilty. She also has an obsession with sweets (all the bakery goodies), nerf wars, wigs, and occasionally tutus.
When she isn’t writing, shenanigating (I’m sure that’s a word), or lying, Raye is with her family . . . preferably at the beach.

*Author note: This book is not reverse harem (RH)
The first few months of school weren’t exactly easy: fated-mate from the rival clan, selkie attacks, and that minor, aka huge, plot to kill her.
But things seem to be going from bad to worse.
After watching a loved one’s horrific death at the hands of the alpha king, Nai decides another visit to Dark Row is in order. After all, a witch there knows the Keeper of Souls, and Nai wants her friend back.
But the trip to the Realm of the Dead doesn’t go quite as planned. Nai discovers a family member has been keeping secrets—BIG secrets. Scratch that. Make that TWO family members—and LOTS of secrets.
When Nai's negotiation skills land her and Rage in a contract that is near impossible to meet, the consequences of success and failure are equally dire.
Ah, hello, trouble!
She's determined to bring her friend back from the dead and still keep her mate, or die trying.
One thing’s for certain, nothing on Shifter Island will ever be the same.
In the middle of my coronation ceremony she disappears.
All signs point to a kidnapping, but the High Mage Realm is off limits for my kind.
I’ll be damned before I let anyone take her from me.
Unfortunately, Nai’s abduction isn’t my only problem.
Between the outcast shifters, the lower class mages, and strange deaths in Dark Row, I struggle under the weight of royal responsibilities.
The longer I rule, the more I discover how dirty the high mages are playing... and how desperate they are for power.
And I start to wonder if Nai was abducted, or if she left of her own free will.
Was fate wrong about us?
Told from Courage “Rage” Midnight’s POV, this fast-paced novella gives exclusive insight into the new Alpha King’s heart and mind after Nai's disappearance.
Everything is at stake: my fated-mate bond, my family members’ lives, even my freedom.
High Mage Academy is nothing like I thought it would be and getting back to Rage is my number one priority. On top of having to pass my initiation, I've come to find out there is a darkness threatening both Shifter Island and High Mage Island. We may just have to work together or all hope will be lost. Now if I can just sort the good guys from the bad guys, because right now, it seems I can't trust anyone.
Get ready for the epic conclusion to this series! It's full of pulse-pounding young adult fantasy adventure with twists and turns you won’t see coming. Fated mates and forbidden romance with a slow burn that will curl your toes. Shifter Island is everything you could want in a YA romantic fantasy series!

Unique teen dark fantasy with slow burn romantic tension, plot twists, and believable YA characters.
All of my expectations shattered the day my sister fell, and my magic changed. Zivrune, the prince I’d loved since childhood, didn’t become king. My sister didn’t heal the land. The two of them didn’t become bondmates.
For years I waited in hiding, hoping for the promised rebellion. Instead, the cruel king’s guards arrive and leave a trail of bodies in their search for someone.
I know who they want. I just don’t understand why.
To find answers, I’m forced to return to the capital and face my past. But I’m not the same girl anymore. Because now, I know family doesn’t mean fidelity, devotion definitely requires sacrifice, and love?
For Rune, I’ll defy the law, regardless of nature or magic.

I can’t remember my name or my magic. I don’t know what happened to our ruler or why the jungle is transforming, becoming even more wild. Who is my guard and why is he angry? And why do I feel safe with a deadly panther?
Arriving in the village of Puleer, I hope to find relief among the magi and, hopefully, some answers.
Instead, the laws of nature change before my eyes, and the dangers of the jungle are nothing compared to this twisted utopia.
When the panther leaves, a new magi joins the outpost, and I know he has answers. But what if all of my questions were wrong? As the jungle vines converge and tighten, I begin to wonder. . .
Was my memory truly lost—or was it stolen?

After my capture, I’m escorted to the capital for my magik to be tested. While I don’t know who I am, the magi guards believe I’m the kumdar’s lost bondmate.
I know better.
What they propose is impossible for two irrefutable reasons. First, my magik is nothing like hers. And second, if my body and soul were mate-bonded, I wouldn’t feel this unquenchable desire for my captor.
Dragged before the ruthless king, I’m forced to participate in a magical trial. His culling of the weak involves tests which are both perverse and brutal. With a magi guard reading my thoughts and the panthera shifter stealing my memories, my sanity teeters on the edge of a precipice. Forced to choose between two brothers, my former enemies become more than allies. Much more.
And if they’re right about who I am, my biggest problem isn’t that they hate our sovereign—
It’s that I do too.
