Young Adult / High Fantasy
The Reforging series
Book 1: The Locksmith
Strange that, in a world where membership in one of four magic guilds guarantees respect and wealth, Lucinda Guillierre is terrified of being exposed as a witch. The Fire Warlock is puzzled but not alarmed by her attitude. Not, that is, until a long-buried secret comes to light.
She has good reasons to be afraid.
As war looms and dangerous romance beckons, who will have the best chance to kill her? Her enemies, her friends, or Lucinda herself?
An empowering adventure through a magical world that is both warmly familiar and delightfully new. Lucinda Guillierre’s journey toward unexpected power hearkens back to the very best of Mercedes Lackey, Diana Wynne Jones, or Naomi Mitchison. A spellbinding beginning to a landmark fantasy series.– David Bowles, author of the ALA honor award winning The Smoking Mirror
