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.
Steve is a bestselling author of Urban Fantasy series Hellequin Chronicles, and Avalon Chronicles, and was shortlisted for a Gemmell Award for his novel, Scorched Shadows. He's also a father of 3 young daughters. The latter of which is also the reason why he's an owner of lockable office.
Steve was born in a small village called Mexborough, South Yorkshire, but now lives with his wife and three young daughters in Southampton.
