Author: Emily Bybee
Title: Fractured Magic
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Release Date: October 31st 2018
Publisher: Wild Rose Press


As the world’s worst witch, Maddie is mistreated by her own kind. She was born a Defect. Most of her spells blow up in her face, literally. While witches search for the long-lost power of the earth, Maddie spends her time in the science lab. There, she discovers a clue to the lost power. The only other witness is Jax, a smokin’ hot college bad-boy, who Maddie can’t decide if she wants to kiss or kill.

When she fails her magic final, the council orders her magic stripped. Maddie’s only chance to keep her brain intact is to find the power with the hope that it can fix her. Jax is her one true ally on the journey. The two of them must use their smarts to stay ahead of the witches while they follow a two-hundred-year-old trail to the power of the earth and the truth behind Maddie’s defect.

His face reddened. “You’ll be fine? Your heart stopped six times. You were dead, Maddie, for nearly ten minutes. You were dead.”
I waved off his concern. “Well, I’m back now so cancel the funeral.”

He took a seat with his buddies, not a care in the world. Call it my sense of injustice or whatever, but I couldn’t stand to watch him sit and relax with a smile on his face. My parents never let me perform magic in public. For obvious reasons. News stories tended to follow about suspected terrorist attacks, but really, that was only like once. Or twice.
My muscles tensed to get up and walk over to do something mundane like throw coffee in his face. I know, being a witch should be way cooler. But I had to do something.
Before I could stand up, the tiny lights of my blood cells flashed in my mind. I paused, I already had to have an uncomfortable talk with my parents about the burning blood. What was one more tiny problem? I settled back into my seat. Across the room Nathan laughed and lifted his cup to blow on the steaming drink. I focused my aim, carefully using only a little of my energy to undo the electromagnetic bonds of the molecules in his cup.
It took all my attention. I’d only managed success with this particular spell a couple times and if my aim was the least bit off…Well, let’s just say it wouldn’t be pretty.
The bottom of Nathan’s cup blew out, and the contents covered his crotch in mocha napalm. My excess energy had superheated the coffee to a scalding temperature and sent chunks of the cup flying through the air. He sprang from his seat and fanned his pants while his wide-open mouth emitted a surprisingly high pitched shriek. My hand slapped over my lips, my entire body shaking with enjoyment. A little overkill, maybe. Too bad my mom wasn’t around to see me actually do a spell right.
