Half-Shell Prophecies

Reid has a distinct, irreverent, and frothy style and imbues Katie with mordant wit and a gutful of millennial girl-power. Together, they bring quest-fantasy insouciantly into a modern era.

Frightened monsters, stolen time, and one seriously underestimated damsel.

Katie ran from the magical world years ago. She never planned on being dragged back in by a prophesying clamshell.

The seers believe she alone can prevent an apocalypse of ruined time and broken worlds. Bran the Crow King believes she can save him from his cannibalistic grandfather.

Katie believes they’re all nuts.

One thing is for certain: she’s not waiting around for help. Operation Katie Saves her Own Damn Self is officially on.

★★★★★ I was drawn into the story by Katie Lin, a strong character with plenty of history and a penchant for sarcasm. By the time she gets jerked back into the magical world by her buddy Bran, the Crow King, and the cryptic prophecies of a clamshell, I was hooked.

★★★★★ Ruthanne Reid’s stories are always so creative and fun to read, with intriguing characters and plot lines, and this one is no exception. Among the Mythos is such an enjoyable story universe and I’m looking forward to reading Beloved, Notte!

★★★★★ Imagine being in a situation where you are committed to helping (and even saving) someone dangerous, unlikeable, and who is holding someone you love hostage. Imagine doing it while you're still trying to figure out your own new powers and state of being. Great storytelling!
