Today, I want to give you a sneak peak at an upcoming Noon & Wilder book called SEALED BY MAGIC, the sequel to SEALED BY FIRE. We had a lot of fun writing Magic because we explored more of the lamia culture and how it relates to the witches in Seattle. I love worldbuilding, so this one was a lot of fun to write.
Here’s the blurb:
Will a brewing shifter war tear apart two young men, brought together by magic and a fate stronger than one life?
Seattle has been at peace since before it was founded on the banks of the Puget Sound. The war between the witches and the snake shifters ended and they now live separate lives. Generations of distrust have kept them separated, until Ari Fitzgerald meets Zachary Bennett, a young witch from the Queen City Coven.
Ari is the son of the lamia king. He needs to find the source of the black market trading in lamia venom before any other snake shifters are hurt, or worse. The young ones are most at risk, because their venom is more potent. Ari discovers the source is a witch and suspicion falls on Zac and his coven.
Zac works for his brother-in-law, a powerful bear shifter who doesn’t care about shifter politics. When three coyote shifters come to town, looking for black-market lamia venom and a witch to kidnap, Zac gets caught in the middle between his brother-in-law’s shifters and the power-hungry coyotes.
Together, Ari and Zac must find the source of the venom before the city erupts into a dangerous and costly shifter war.
