What if color could be transformed into powerful magic?
Forced to move into the palace, Jessa begins training as a Color Alchemist under the direction of the kingdom's most eligible bachelor, Prince Lucas. As an alchemist, Jessa must capture and harness the color of living things. Every color has a unique purpose, except red. Red is the untapped magic no one can access — until Jessa. The power-hungry king makes clear that if she refuses to do red alchemy, Jessa’s family will pay a heavy price.
Prince Lucas is running out of time. His mother is deathly ill and healing magic isn’t working. When Lucas suspects someone is using alchemy to control her, he sets out to discover the truth. Training Jessa is a distraction, and helping his father turn her into a dangerous weapon isn’t what Lucas had in mind. When a resistance group claims they can help, Lucas is forced to examine his loyalty.
PRISM is the first installment of a unique young adult romantic fantasy series, where a dystopian world with a Victorian vibe meets the dynamic magic of color!
“...The (quite literally) colorful landscape—animated by an intriguing cast—is complex but well-explained. Masterfully plotted, Walker builds to not one but several unexpected twists in the novel’s final pages. Readers will no doubt clamor for the next book in this series; a thrilling start from an exciting new talent.” –Kirkus Reviews
the cursed seas collection
My reign is life and my song is death. I am the siren, the Dark Ocean Princess.
A century ago, after the seas rose and billions perished, my ancestors entered into a covenant with the Tibetan monks. Their magic granted us survival as sirens in exchange for protection. We lived in peace.
Until the humans interfered.
Now the monks have fled and the siren stone has vanished. Our power is dwindling and the ravenous sea monsters are turning the seas red with blood.
I’m Princess Senra, the last heir to the Chinese Siren Empire. I must journey to the surface and risk my life where my song holds no sway. I’m tasked to befriend the enemy, blend in with the humans, and find the siren stone before it's too late.
Trouble is, I never expected to care for the humans. And one in particular makes my heart race in ways my fiancé back home never has. I’m faced with an impossible choice: save the humans or save my people.
A standalone, full-length novel in the Cursed Seas Collection, Dark Ocean Princess is filled with magic and mages, dragons and pirates, forbidden love and Chinese mythology!
