A stunning, addictive fantasy debut that combines intrigue, magic, betrayal, and romance in an original world with a historical WWI tone. In an original world reminiscent of Edwardian England in the shadow of a world war, cabals of noble families use their unique magical gifts to control the fates of nations, while one young man seeks only to live a life of his own. Moving at a brilliant pace and pulsing with deadly intrigue and unforgettable characters, Witchmark grabs readers and doesn't let go until the thrilling conclusion. Magic marked Miles Singer for suffering the day he was born, doomed either to be a slave to his family's interest or to be committed to a witches' asylum. He went to war to escape his destiny and came home a different man, but he couldn't leave his past behind. The war between Aeland and Laneer leaves men changed, strangers to their friends and family. Even after faking his own death and reinventing himself as a doctor at a cash-strapped veteran's hospital, Miles can't hide what he truly is.

"Samuel Roukin narrates a charming fantasy that also features intrigue and a hint of romance. Miles Singer works at Beauregard Veterans' Hospital as a doctor, but his true identity is altogether different. Roukin creates an entirely sympathetic portrait of Miles: He is overworked, underappreciated, and desperately afraid of his true nature being found out, but the most important thing to him is the well-being of his patients. Roukin highlights this earnestness, making it the key feature of his characterization. Similarly, Miles's sister, Grace, is brash yet unsure of herself, and all too aware of her precarious position in society--all of which come through in Roukin's portrayal. These assets, along with fully developed secondary characters and a rich setting, will leave listeners eager for a sequel. K.M.P.
