In a world where magic thrives in secret city corners, a group of magicians embark on a road trip—and it’s the "no-love-interest", found family adventure you’ve been searching for.
Sixteen-year-old Blythe is one of seven Guardians: magicians powerful enough to cause worldwide panic with a snap of their fingers. But Blythe spends her days pouring latte art at her family’s coffee shop, so why should she care about having apocalyptic abilities?
She’s given a reason when magician anarchists crash into said coffee shop and kidnap her family.
Heartbroken but determined, Blythe knows she can’t save them alone. A war is brewing between two magician governments and tensions are too high. So, she packs up her family’s bright yellow Volkswagen, puts on a playlist, and embarks on a road trip across the United States to enlist the help of six strangers whose abilities are unparalleled—the other Guardians.
I am SO EXCITED for this book, you guys, you have NO IDEA! Pre-order links just went up a few days ago – this is what I get for being off Twitter for a bit; I completely missed the announcement. Fail! But I’ve ordered it now, and of course I’m boosting it here! All the pre-order links can be found here at Monet’s Twitter; it’s going to be available on a bunch of different platforms, so hopefully everyone who wants one can nab a copy.
AND IF YOU DON’T WANT A COPY
THEN YOU’RE WRONG
