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
Teddy Jones is a one-upper.
We grew up across the street from each other, always competing. When I got into Brown, he got into Harvard. When I dropped out early, he went on to law school. And when I ended up in a string of bad relationships, he started dating my old high school bully.
So when Teddy challenges me to bring a suitable date to my sister’s wedding, I decide it’s my turn to be the one-upper. My date is a handsome, rich, successful Yale alumni. We met on Legacy, the exclusive dating app for Ivy Leaguers, and we’re madly in love. And he’d be perfect––if he actually existed.
Now I have six weeks to download the app and find Mr. Ivy League before Teddy catches me in a lie.
