Rin Chupeco wrote obscure manuals for complicated computer programs, talked people out of their money at event shows, and did many other terrible things. They now write about ghosts and fairy tales but is still sometimes mistaken for a revenant. They were born and raised in the Philippines and, or so the legend goes, still haunts that place to this very day. They wrote the following YA series: THE GIRL FROM THE WELL, THE BONE WITCH, THE NEVER TILTING WORLD, WICKED AS YOU WISH; stories in the anthologies HUNGRY HEARTS, HIS HIDEOUS HEART, and BLACK CRANE; and the upcoming adult vampire duology, Silver Under Nightfall.
Check out Rin’s work: WICKED AS YOU WISH
Once upon a time, the magical Kingdom of Avalon was left to wither and die after the Snow Queen encased it in ice. Its former citizens are now refugees. Which is why crown prince Alex and his protectors are stuck in… Arizona.
Tala Makiling has lived her life as an outsider. Her family curse, the one that’s doomed her to be a spellbreaker, someone who destroys magic, hasn’t won her too many friends. Except Alex, who trusts her and her family to keep his royal identity a secret.
And then one night, a famous creature of legend, the Firebird, appears in their tiny town, reigniting hope for their abandoned homeland. Alex and Tala team up with a ragtag group of new friends to journey back to Avalon. Their path is filled with danger―from deadly prophecies, to terrifying ice wolves, a traitor among them, and the Snow Queen herself. But if they succeed… their story would be legendary.
