A Conjuring of Ravens

A Practical Guide to Sorcery Book 1

In a world where magic is a science, Siobhan Naught is a genius.

But even geniuses need schooling.

Siobhan has just been banned from the country’s only magical university.

As the unwitting accomplice to the theft of a priceless magical artifact, she has suddenly become a wanted criminal. There are fates worse than death, and if caught, she will face them. Unwilling to give up on her dream of becoming the world’s most powerful sorcerer, she resolves to do whatever it takes to change her fate.

Even if it means magically disguising herself as a boy and indebting herself to a gang of criminals to pay for University tuition.

With the coppers after her, the pressure of trying to keep her spot in the devilishly competitive magic classes, and the gang calling in favors to repay her debts, Siobhan will need every drop of magic she can channel.

A Binding of Blood

A Practical Guide to Sorcery Book 2

To study magic at the University, Siobhan sacrificed her name.
She sacrificed her body, and her past.


Magically disguised as a boy named Sebastien, she is learning wondrous secrets of the thaumaturgic sciences. As Sebastien, she mingles with the young nobles who will one day rule their country. But danger is closer than ever, and she cannot escape her past.

The coppers investigating the theft of Siobhan’s priceless transformation artifact have given her a new name. The Raven Queen. As Siobhan does favors for the gang that loaned her the University tuition, the Raven Queen’s mystique only grows.

And keeps growing…

…Snowballing out of control until Siobhan’s other identity takes on a life of its own, a fear-inducing bogeyman well beyond the truth of her real capabilities.

With the whole city out to get her and trouble hounding both sides of her double life, how will Siobhan ever survive to become the world’s most powerful sorcerer?
