Into the Sea of Waking Dreams

The Last Rite — Jen Frankel
Blood & Magic, book 1

2012’s1 The Last Rite is the first volume in Jen Frankel’s Blood & Magic series.

Thirteen-year-old Maggie Stuart is an unwilling loner, unable to make friends at her Toronto school and unsure why that is so. Even the boy on whom she has a painful crush is barely aware of her. If he notices her at all, it’s to ask for academic help.

No worries, though, because the Burnt Man has taken a keen interest in young Maggie. He wants to be with her for ever and ever. Or until Maggie dies. Whichever comes first.
