At the start of her senior year of high school, Lexie Carrigan is focused on two things–getting accepted to the college of her dreams and keeping her sisters safe. But when Gavon’s apprentice, James Riley, appears on the first day of school, all of Lexie’s well-laid plans of having a normal senior year go out the window.
James says he’s there to learn, but Lexie doesn’t trust him, and she refuses to make another colossal mistake like she did with Gavon. Despite her best efforts, an unlikely friendship blossoms in the sparring ring, and James proves an adversary unlike any she’s faced before: one she understands.
Magic and Mayhem is the sequel to Spells and Sorcery, a young adult contemporary fantasy from author S. Usher Evans.
