The magical world wants nothing to do with MaLeila Samara. The first reason is she’s a powerful no name sorceress with no magical ties who inherited the magical legacy of the most powerful western sorcerers to live, Claude Thorne. The second reason is because she had the audacity to claim the right while having kinky hair and chocolate colored skin.
So MaLeila gave the magical world the proverbial f*** you, fought off the sorcerers and sorceress who sought to see her killed for the bragging rights and lives in relative content with her two companions, both former slaves to Claude. Bastet—the powerful sorceress with an affinity for yang magic who introduced her to the magical world; and Devdan, the brooding sorcerer with an affinity for yin magic who tried to kill her when they first met but who MaLeila now goes back and forth between hating and wanting to fall in bed with.
She and Devdan are admittedly toxic, co-dependent, fiercely protective of each other while at the same time resentful. They’re more than willing to mostly ignore the latter and continue their back and forth sexually charged game until the Magic Council sends Marcel Brant to help them unravel The Immortal Queen Tsubame, the newest threat to the order and secrecy of the magical world. But Marcel’s more interested in admittedly having sex with MaLeila than finding Tsubame and because of his influence, for the first time since learning it existed, MaLeila wants to know all that magical world has to offer. Exploring the magical world also means that MaLeila and Devdan have to deal with the mistrust and resentment in their bond and the dark past that forced them together before she was even born. And Tsubame is more than happy to use it to her advantage to drive them apart and destroy the only real threat that can stop her from wreaking havoc on the world.
H. D. Muhammad writes romantic fantasy mostly out of boredom and because if she doesn’t she won’t be able to sleep at night or focus on other tasks because of all the characters talking in her head. When characters aren’t telling her stories that need to be written, she enjoys reading, cooking, playing pokemon and studying to become a lawyer.
