|About the Book|
Ciress is a world that runs on magic, and those with the most magic run the world. Genevieve Villard was in line to become a great leader, but during her Rite of Ascension something went horribly wrong. Her sister Giselle, a flibbertigibbet society girl, was conferred not only the power that was rightly Genevieves but that of every other Guild Master on Ciress. Now Giselle must come to terms with being the magical protector of her entire planet - if the Guild Masters let her live that long. The second volume of Mystic introduces Animora, a demon queen brought back to life in a dubious scheme of the Guild Masters to regain their powers. They swiftly learn what it is to make a deal with a devil, as Animora double-crosses the Guild Masters and threatens to enslave all Ciress. Only the power of Giselle`s mysterious sigil and the combined wisdom of the Guild Spirits can stop Animora`s evil.
