Description

“No one builds worlds like Melissa Marr.” ―Charlaine Harris, New York Times bestselling author on Graveminder

The Magicians meets One Last Stop in this brand-new fantasy romance Remedial Magic, about an unassuming librarian who 1) has fallen in love with a powerful witch; 2) has discovered that she is a witch; and 3) must attend magical community college to learn how to save her new world from complete destruction by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr!

Ellie loves working in her local library in the small town of Ligonier. She loves baking scones and investigating the mysterious and captivating in her spare time. And there is nothing more mysterious and captivating than the intriguingly beautiful, too properly dressed woman sipping tea in her library who has appeared as if out of nowhere. The pull between them is undeniable, and Ellie is not sure that she wants to resist.

Prospero, a powerful witch from the magical land of Crenshaw, is often accused of being… ruthless in her goals and ambitions. But she is driven to save her dying homeland, and a prophecy tells her that Ellie is the key. Unbeknownst to Ellie, her powers have not yet awakened. But all of that is about to change.

Praise for Remedial Magic (A Course in Magic #1)

Praise for Remedial Magic:

"A fairy tale with very sharp thorns."--Booklist

Praise for Graveminder:
“Plan ahead to read this one, because you won’t be able to put it down! Haunting, captivating, brilliant!” —Library Journal (starred review)

“Marr serves up a quirky dark fantasy fashioned around themes of fate, free will—and zombies. . . . Well-drawn characters and their dramatic interactions keep the tale loose and lively.” —Publishers Weekly

“Marr does a great job with the mythology of her new world, her prose is as seamless as ever, and if the events described above weren't enough, she slips in a half-dozen or so other subplots that only enrich the main storyline that much more.” —The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction

“Melissa Marr has the rare talent of making deeply weird things seem perfectly normal, and making perfectly normal things seem deeply weird.” —io9

“No one builds worlds like Melissa Marr.” —Charlaine Harris, New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse series

“If anyone can put the goth in Southern Gothic, it’s Melissa Marr.” —NPR
