Guest Post and Giveaway In Shadows of Magic by Alison F Prince

Published July 11, 2013 by Astraea Press


Mandy McKinney lives the charmed life. She is beautiful, athletic, popular, dating the hottest jock in school, and certainly doesn't have any time for her loser twin sister. But Mandy also has a secret. When the truth is unveiled, her world is twisted upside down, and her very life is at stake.

Mandy's twin sister, Brianna, has never had any success in the dating department. When Brianna finally meets the guy of her dreams, it turns out that he has secrets of his own. Dangerous secrets. Just her luck.

The twins are about to be swept away into a world of beauty and power beyond their wildest imaginations where nothing is what is seems, danger is lurking in the shadows, and their only chance of survival is finding themselves, and each other, once again.

Choose TRUE Friends
When you're in high school, it can be hard to know who your real friends are.  Mean girls whisper lies in the hallway, and rumors can fly like wildfire.  All of a sudden, you feel like a leper. It hurts when your "friends" all of a sudden drop you and talk behind your back.  

In the new YA paranormal novel, In Shadows of Magic, Mandy McKinney appears to be the most popular girl in school.  She is beautiful, athletic, talented, and adored by all the boys in school. The truth is that Mandy is a big, fat phony!  She is a witch, and has been using her powers make herself popular.  Are Mandy's friends real?  If she wasn't the star of the school, would any of the popular crowd still hang with her?  Does Mandy even honestly like some of the "mean girls" she hangs out with, or is she only friends with them to boost her image?

Mandy is tired of living her life behind this facade, but she worries that she will never make any friends the real way-- through loyalty and kindness.  At the start of In Shadows of Magic, Mandy lacks the confidence to walk away from her fake life and pursue true friendships.  What will happen when one of Mandy's "friends" turns against her and creates a scheme to ruin her life? 

Bea- YOU- tiful:  Choose real friends who you share common interests with, love you for you, and will stand up for you even when everyone is against you.  

Will Mandy find the confidence to find true friends without using her magic?  Read In Shadows of Magic to find out!

Join witches Brianna and Mandy on their magical journey of self discovery in the new Young Adult Paranormal novel by Alison F. Prince, In Shadows of Magic.
