About Kasey Mackenzie
Kasey Mackenzie lives with her husband and son in St. Louis, Missouri; home of the Gateway Arch, the baseball Cardinals, and the world's greatest thin-crust pizza.

Today, she is a voracious reader of fantasy, romance, suspense, and science fiction. She adores her German shepherd puppy, wicked kitty cat, playing softball, and teaching Zumba. Passionate about the written word, she feels extremely lucky to make a living as an editor and writer. Now, if she could just figure out how to get paid for cleaning her own house, maybe that would happen more often...

Plenty people have deadbeat parents, but how many have fathers who keep showing up to kill them? Just one more example of what a lucky woman I am. Oh wait, I'm not even human anymore--I'm a Fire-controlling Elemental called a Phoenix. And boy, do I have daddy issues!
I also have long-lost sibling issues when my sister and brother show up on my new Elemental clan's doorstep. They were rescued from Daddy Dearest's evil lab by an old enemy in a show of good faith. Turns out that enemy's now carrying his latest magical science experiments (twins!) and claims she can help us save my bondmate Jake's own twin, Colin. The one we thought was beyond saving.
Now we're in a race to find Colin's watery grave and free my siblings from our father's psychic powers. If only I master my own abilities as the world's first Elemental liegelord in centuries, we might stand a chance.
The title's gender-neutral, thank you very much, and I'm about to show Daddy Dearest he messed with the wrong daughter. Failure's not an option, because it means that everyone I love will be mind-controlled minions of my father--or dead beyond saving.

Except it turns out we have our own mole to worry about, something that becomes frighteningly clear when deadly assassins keep getting way too close for comfort.

And if we don’t figure out who the traitor is, Daddy Dearest just might succeed in making his cruel vision of the future a reality.

These days, someone is playing favorites, drawing Riss into a tumultuous civil war embroiling every god and goddess.

Lose yourself in this New Adult academy urban fantasy loosely inspired by Snow White by an author Karen Chance calls "brilliant"...
Winning full scholarships to Eternal Academy was supposed to be a dream come true for my twin Misty and me, but the Witch Queen has minions everywhere. Even here. If she discovers we didn’t die to an assassin’s blade 18 years ago after all, the witching world’s most elite university may just become our worst nightmare.
To make matters worse, I just learned our birth mother’s soul is imprisoned inside a dark curse cast by the same wicked witch who ordered us murdered as toddlers. Our patron deity Artemis forbids any attempts to free our mother. She orders us to learn as much magic as we can while the Witch Queen still believes us dead.
Only now I’m not so sure that’s true. One near-death experience could be the accident everyone wants me to believe—but two? Misty and I have been warned not to trust anyone, but soon we may have no option but to take a leap of faith. Failing to choose the right allies won’t just see us both dead—it will enslave our mother’s soul inside the Witch Queen’s dark curse. Forever.
