Emily Jones used to think witches, trolls, nymphs, and fairies didn't exist...that is, until she moves to Scotland and receives a magical diary, which makes wishes come true. She learns that magic can change her life, but little does she know every wish has a price. When something goes terribly wrong and a portal to Black Wood opens, magical creatures ruled by a powerful evil sorceress are eager to enter and destroy the world.
Now danger follows Emily everywhere, and she has no choice but to find allies among the trolls. But to do so, Emily must embrace her powers and enter Black Wood, not knowing how dark and deep her journey is going to be.
Will Emily learn to use her legacy in time before Black Wood's deadly servants are unleashed to destroy the world?
Black Wood is Book 1 in the new teen series, A Witch Rising. Book 2, MORTAL STAR, will be released in August 2012
