This powerful sequel to Indigo Springs, the Sunburst Award-winning contemporary fantasy, starts in the small town in Oregon where Astrid Lethewood discovered an underground river of blue liquid — Vitagua — that is pure magic — and everything it touches is changed by that magic. The secret is out — and the world will never be the same.
Astrid’s best friend, Sahara has been corrupted by the power that comes from the blue magic, and now leads a cult that seeks to rule the world. Astrid, on the other hand, tries to heal the world; Indigo Springs is a magical utopia. Conflicting ambitions, star-crossed loves, and those who feared and hated magic combine in a terrible conflagration, pitting friend against friend, magic against magic, and the power of nations against a small band of zealots, with the fate of the world at stake.
Blue Magic is a powerful story of private lives changed by earthshaking events that will ensnare readers in its poignant tale of a world touched by magic and plagued by its consequences.
