The Traitor’s Crux by Jessica Prather
Eli Coria was only a young boy when his magic powers were discovered and he was ripped from his home, taken as a prisoner by the power-hungry U.S. Government. His little sister Kenadee saw the tragedy with her own two eyes.
Now, at 16-years-old, the memories of Kenadee’s “criminal” brother haunt her. She lives in a country ravaged by years of war, plague, and death. Witches and wizards are hunted for their existence, blamed for the state of the world and the endless death that ensued. So when she finds out she too has magic powers, she must face the facts: Big Brother is watching, and they have plans for her. She’s given a deadly ultimatum, and must decide between two fates: the lives of a secret group of magic refugees, hidden in a camp inaccessible to non-magic beings, or, the safety of her long-lost brother.
With her decision, Kenadee is thrust into a world of magic, terrorism, and secrets. Little does she know, that she’s a mere chess piece in the deadly game of survival.
