Hey there! If you’ve been following my blog – or checking back through the archives – you might recall that last year I featured a short story by Jason Cantrell, Radiance. This short story introduced the world within the Arcana Revived series, and today, I’d like to share the first full-length novel in that series, Manifestation!
Manifestation is Jason Cantrell’s debut novel. Jason describes the series as depicting “the return of magic to modern times and the struggle of a teenage girl trying to survive and to make sense of the supernatural events going on around her.” Check out the blurb, the places to get the book, and the gorgeous cover by Ravven below!
Blurb for Manifestation
Gabby Palladino believes in magic.
Her parents always tell her that magic is nothing more than foolish superstition. But she grew up reading ancient fairy tales known as the Fables of Arcana, which filled her mind with wonder and mystery. When those myths and legends start to come true, Gabby learns that real magic is far more dangerous than the bedtime stories she always believed in.
When people begin manifesting the powers of arcana, Gabby finds herself surrounded by dangers on all sides. She encounters people who can melt steel with their minds, create earthquakes, and summon flames from their bare hands. She must struggle to survive in a city gripped by chaos and destruction, while trying to discover why people are manifesting abilities that have been lost since ancient times.
What she learns will make her question everything she believes in, about the world, her family, and even her own self.
