Madness of Magic
Only someone desperate for money would work for a mad witch in a mysterious tower.
Abie is everything Maeva needs in a testing subject for her spells, but when he begins to work for her, he comes to discover that Maeva is not what she seems.
Soon, the truth of her past is cast into the light, revealing a shadowy plot. One that involves her doppleganger sister, the Twin Princes of Ckastia, and a dark character from Abie's past. While tensions grow between two countries, so does the madness in Maeva's head. Under pressure from friends, enemies, and even the gods above, Maeva may be forced to embrace a life she'd long ago left. But with the madness of magic looming over her, allies and cleverness might prove just as necessary in preventing another war.
All Abie had wanted when he applied for the job was a decent pay, and to not be turned into a frog. Instead, he is plunged into a magical story of family, war, mystery, love, and deception that explores the city of Portwenn during its darkest time.
