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.

Bea- YOU- tiful:  Real Confidence in Yourself

Don't compare YOUrself to Others

Sometimes we all fall into the trap of comparing ourselves to others.  No matter who you are, there is always someone prettier, more talented, more popular, smarter, or more accomplished than you.

For Brianna McKinney, that person is her twin sister.  Mandy McKinney is blonde, beautiful, talented, popular, and dating the boy that Brianna has crushed on for years.  Mandy is way too cool to hang out with her own twin sister!

Brianna knows that she will never measure up to or fit into her twin's world.  To avoid comparisons to her perfect sister, Brianna dyes her hair jet black and joins a rock band.

What Brianna doesn't know is that Mandy is secretly jealous of Brianna!  Mandy wishes that she could have the courage to express her individuality the way her twin does.  Even though Mandy is popular, many of her friends are fake and only interested in social status.  Brianna has developed true friendships with people who truly love her for her. 

The twins have a lot they can learn from each other, but they have barely spoken in years. Will the sisters discover that they are more alike than they realize?  Are they able to reconcile their friendship?  Will it take a dangerous situation where the girls lives are at stake to find out?

Like with the twins, you may be comparing yourself to someone who feels inadequate when she is compared to you!  We all have our strengths and weaknesses, but do you know what you will always be more of than everyone else?  More you.  There will never be another that is more you than YOU.  Be proud of what makes you YOU!

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.
