Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of being ordinary. That my mom baked cookies instead of brewing spells That my dad lived with us, not on the demon plane. All I ever wanted was to be like everyone else.
I know what you’re thinking. You’d die to live in my world. How cool would it be if magic was real and you could do anything?
You have no idea. Here I am in another new town, but it’s the same old thing. Cheerleader bullies? How original. Friendless again? Who’s surprised. I suck at fitting in. Especially when I’m in the middle of saving my family from total destruction.
My name is Sydlynn Hayle, and that’s my life.
