Rachel’s Pick:
Heartless Prince by Leigh Dragoon

Heartless Prince by Leigh Dragoon

When her town is ravaged by a witch, Evony is taken in by the royal family and raised as a hunter. Evony has a gift that allows her to sense the familiars of witches. Prince Ammon uses this skill in the fight against the witches. The prince invites Evony to go beyond the safe walls of the palace in order to prove himself to everyone by facing familiars on their own. Unfortunately, powerful witches steal Prince Ammon’s heart and kidnap his sister, Nissa. Now Evony is faced with the difficult task of rescuing both!

We’ll hold weekly online get-togethers where you can hone your craft, practice creative exercises, share your work with fellow writers, and explore new ways to get your ideas out of your head and onto the page. No experience necessary; curiosity encouraged!

Space is limited; registration required. Accommodations can be made for joining by phone. Only one registration is required per household. A Zoom link will be sent to registrants a couple of days before the event. Grades 6-12.
