A Wanted Witch, a Wizard Killer and More

My name is Mackenzie Adams, but my friends call me Zee. I’m a Healer and Lightning Mage, which means I can cheat death and fry my enemies with a flick of my wrist.

But that doesn’t keep me from becoming a suspect in a series of darkly magical murders.

Which is why I must go undercover with the help of my gamer friends and my hot new boyfriend to find the mage responsible and clear my name. It will require all my training to stop the unknown foe from killing more innocent people before the lure of dark magic grabs me, too.
