Ascending Mage : Her changeling friends are imprisoned. To free them, she’ll have to break the laws of magic.
Ember Wright managed to save her friends’ lives, only to see them locked up and tormented. With each passing day, the changelings weaken and submit to their interrogators. Secrets start to slip.
Running out of options and allies, Ember turns to an ancient, forbidden form of advanced magic. Her reluctant teacher’s warning echoes in her head: almost all mages who attempt the spell become corrupted by it.
Complicating matters, her overbearing mother decides to come visit—in the middle of a crisis. What could possibly go wrong?
As though an answer to Ember’s desperate prayers, an otherworldly force reveals itself. Will this new power be her greatest weapon? Or will it be her ultimate undoing?

“I’ve got my crosswords,” the driver replied.
Elton stood beneath a lamp post, wiping spider guts and silk from his hand with a dampened paper towel. He flashed a toothy shark grin. “You’ve got a driver now, Will? Your time in England got you acclimated to the finer things in life?”
