Dear Dream Agent,
Fourteen-year-old Mandy Samkirk is the only person who can return light to the world, but she isn’t sure she wants to.
Mandy’s parents have been keeping secrets. Not only is Mandy a marvel – complete with magical powers – but she is being forced to leave her life and friends behind for some ridiculous boarding school. How cliché.
When Mandy’s father is murdered right before her eyes, she is thrust into the heart of a battle she never knew existed. The marvel world is under siege by Temne – who consume light, or your inherent goodness – causing the world to get darker. The days creep by until the earth is covered in perpetual darkness, and death is certain for all.
Legend says there is only one who can bridge the gap between magical and non-magical beings to restore harmony to the precarious balance of good and evil. This harmony holds the key to restoring light to the decaying planet.
Even with the fate of humanity resting on her shoulders, Mandy isn’t sure she can face the villain she loves.
When battle is imminent, Mandy finds the courage to make a decision she never expected.
Emerald’s Keeper, a YA Paranormal novel, is complete at 61,000 words. I believe it will appeal to fans of Aprilynne Pike’s Wings as well as Holly Black’s Tithe.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
