Shadow in the Backwater

Shadow in the Backwater

Senior year has started at the Academy of Necessary Magic. One long summer in the swamps and Amanda is ready to get back.

Not only does she have a job with the Coalition but newfound independence with independent study.

Look out world. Idle hands make for a devil’s playground… especially when a boy is involved.

When Amanda’s ghost-wolf acts up and leads her straight to Matt Hardy practicing magic on school grounds, she proves herself wrong one more time. A boy like Matt shouldn’t be able to use that kind of magic. She should know—they’re both shifters, after all.

Except the new boy’s something else too, and he just won’t leave her alone.

How in the world is our shifter girl supposed to juggle senior year, a complicated shifter relationship, an oddly jealous best friend, and a serious emergency threat to an entire continent?

All in a day’s work for a teenage monster hunter, right?

About the Author
Martha Carr

with Michael Anderle

Okay, I'm a late bloomer who's a big DC comics fan and spent my childhood summers on the Jersey shore in the U.S. but have had a weird wanderlust to live in different parts of America ever since. That's enough about me. Need to feel inspired today? Looking for something to make you root for an ordinary hero? I'm all about that in everything I write.

I love a good tale that makes me wonder about things and I love a story even more that leaves me feeling inspired or like I'm capable of doing more than I realized. That's my goal with everything I've ever written. Some of the stories I tell involve twisting, turning thrillers and others have a lot of magic.

There's something to be said for getting lost in another world and coming out the other side feeling a little better about yourself or the possibilities in front of you. That's basically the best part of life in a nutshell, no matter what kind of story I'm setting out to tell.
