Inheriting her grandmother's flock of Serama chickens--very special chickens she'd been told--had been the most normal thing to ever happen to Marcy. She'd gotten away from the Musigmagium after someone she loved had been killed and she never planned on going back.
The Great Dividing changed everything.
Magic returned even more strongly and the Musimagium's law enforcement arm, Musa Armis, had its hands full as rogue magic users popped up all over. Armis wanted her back. After all, Marcy knew too much about the Musimagium. Know how they acted and how they sacrificed anything and anyone to achieve their goals.
Then Sarge, the Serama rooster, began talking to her, and Marcy realized she was in over her head. Danger lurked just beyond her safe little haven and the only way to save herself, and her grandmother's chickens, is to go back to the very people who quite possibly wanted her dead.

Lindy Ascott left her high pressure job as an attorney in St. Louis to buy a horse boarding facility with a bed and breakfast. She's been able to channel her love of cooking into a business catering to guests looking for the equestrian lifestyle. She wants more. When she's accepted into a cooking competition on the same weekend as the big horse show, she fears she has to choose. Cooking or dressage? The kitchen or her horses?
She's worked too hard to have to make a choice like that and with the help of her good friends, maybe she doesn't have to. With everything on the line she's going to have to cook for her life and let one of her good friends ride her horse. An accident changes plans at the last minute, and Lindy wonders if she really is on the right track--for both her business and her horse.
Left for dead when the Great Dividing happened, Olivia Santos retreated to her small southern Ohio acreage and her horses, including her longtime companion, Lady. Her home also hides a magical node, one whose energy supports a small herd of unicorns. As their guardian, she vows to protect them at any cost.
A series of magical attacks on the node come from a rogue group within the Musimagium, one that wants to destroy the node and send the unicorns back to the magical realms from which they come for good.
Olivia refuses to let that happen and when she discovers the group is backed by her old boss—the one who left her for dead—she’s forced back into the world of Armis and the Musimagium. They almost killed her once. Lady fears it will happen again.
But Olivia has no choice and thankfully she’s not alone. Even with help, she knows if she can’t stop the attacks, she won’t live long enough to protect those she loves.
As the new director of the Akron Auxiliary, Olivia knows she has a lot of work to do. In addition, she's still tasked with protecting the node and the unicorns which call it home. All of this while the attacks continue and she’s stuck behind a desk.
Her job duties may be divided between home and office; her loyalties are not. The threat is growing and she’s tired of being told to wait. But her plan backfires and creates even more dangers for not just the node and unicorns, but also her horses.
She’s tired of the secrets and the machinations of the Musimagium. She needs answers.
Her quest takes her deep within not just the auxiliary office where she works, but the Musimagium itself. It’s up to her to make sure everyone survives, including herself and her mare, Lady.
