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
I’m Dani, not Sophie. I’m a social media influencer, not a high school teacher. I’m from glamorous California, not rural Oklahoma. And I date available men, not my sister’s off-limits boss.
Even though we’re twins, we couldn’t be more different. I’m the wild child and Sophie’s far too responsible for her own good. I guess that’s why we’ve grown apart over the years. So imagine my surprise when she asks me to take her place while she plays hooky from work to travel abroad. I agree, knowing the swap has risks but never expecting my heart to be one of them.
What started as a favor soon becomes a scandal in the making. If she finds out how much I’m flirting with her off-limits boss—a man she hates—she’ll kill me. I can’t tell him who I really am, or he’ll definitely have to fire her. But if I don’t come clean, I’ll lose the only man I’ve ever truly wanted.
