Blue Magic
By A.M. Dellamonica
Paperback | Kindle
Publisher: Tor
Released April 10, 2012

In Blue Magic, the sequel to Indigo Springs, fantasy writer A.M. Dellamonica continues the magical story of Astrid Lethewood and Sahara Knox. The story begins with the deranged self-proclaimed goddess Sahara on trial for treason at an Air Force base along with a handful of her rabidly devoted followers, known as the Alchemites, including Caroline Forest. Caroline’s husband Will, a former cop, is working with the authorities to convict the so-called eco-terrorists and still hopes to save his wife while coming to terms with the end of his marriage. Also, Caroline has hidden their kids in a secret place and refuses to say where. As if that’s not enough for one man to bear, there’s a strange gate made of brambles that keeps following Will all over the base; a gate that only he can see, created by Astrid should he decide to accept her offer to help him. But that would mean he’d have to first accept magic and he’s not sure he’s ready to do that.
