Mad Magic is a beautifully dark and rich Young Adult fantasy from Nicole Conway, bestselling author of the Dragonrider Chronicles.
Josie Barton is a high school student living in terror. Invisible creatures torment her everywhere she goes, constantly getting her into trouble at school, and even haunting her apartment. But just when Josie thinks things couldn’t get any worse... she meets the guy from across the hall.
Zeph Clemmont is a changeling with enemies in all the worst places, fighting to undo a curse that threatens to end his life. Survival means he will have to swallow his pride and trust Josie with all his darkest secrets.
With the help of a gun-slinging shaman and the enigmatic Prince of Nightmares, Zeph and Josie are only a heartbeat away from defeating one of the most diabolical faerie villains their world has ever known.





 


“A weeping stone.” Eldrick was reading over my shoulder.

His closeness made me jump in surprise. “A what?”

“It goes back to our pilgrimage into your world,” he explained.
“A very, very long time ago, even before the first songs. Our kind
came into this world through an ancient gateway, fleeing from an
unspeakable terror that was ravaging our own realm. Our home had
become a place of darkness and fear—a place without moonlight.”

My skin prickled. “What … kind of terror?”

Memories flickered in the depths of his silver eyes. “There is no
word for them in the human language. We called them skiia—the
devourers. They cannot be bargained or reasoned with. Their only
motive is to drain every drop of magic they possibly can, and as they
do, they spread like a plague.”

I swallowed and sank back in my seat.

“We came here as refugees after our own world was overrun,”
Eldrick murmured. “Humankind looked upon us with awe and
adoration. We made our home here, eager to share this beautiful
world with you, but not before sealing away the ancient gateway so
that the evil destroying our own homeland would never find its way
here.”

“The Fibbing Gate,” I whispered.

Eldrick’s body shuddered at the name. “I was very young when
it happened. My memories of it have all but faded to nothing. In
that same way, such stories of the gateway have become myths. My
father told them to me as a child.” He ran one of his fingers over the
drawing on the page. “Weeping stones were said to guard it. They
stones are made of iron, which as you know has incredible power
against faerie magic, so that no one would ever be able to open it
again.”

“Why would my dad be interested in it?”

His expression steeled as he studied the page. “I don’t know,” he

finally admitted. “But there’s someone else who might.”
