The Kate Roark Magic Series by Laura Rich









The Binding Witch and the Bounty Hunter
The Kate Roark Magic Series Book 2
by Laura Rich
Genre: YA Fantasy

Kate thought she’d never unlock her powers—let alone trigger them by creating a familiar out of a cross-eyed pigeon.

Before she can celebrate the good news, a terrifying bounty hunter kidnaps her mother. In a race against time to save her mother, Kate runs afoul of a dragon, and even worse, the most feared creatures in existence—the dreaded forest gnomes. To top it all off, she discovers long-lost magical family members who maybe should have stayed lost. Kate is finally a witch—but it just might kill her.

If you like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Veronica Mars and iZombie, you’ll be rooting for this strong, snarky teen girl on every page.

Alick gestured between us. “What I really need is help wi' a dragon.”
“Come again?” I stared at the little man. “I’m sorry. I thought I heard you say ‘a dragon.’”
“Aye, just a wee one though,” Alick said, holding his hands about two feet apart. “She bolted for Elsereach five days ago w’ a precious treasure that belongs to the forest gnomes. We want it back.”
I snorted. “You think I can get it for you?”
“I think ye'r a witch, that's what.” He shrugged. “Ye have magic. Dragons have magic. It’ll be easy for the likes o' ye, where it's not easy fur th' likes o' us.”
“Interesting." It was starting to look more and more as if our meeting with the coyotes was planned. Also, if you counted Leo, this was my second request for aid from a paranormal being. Was this what I had to look forward to from now on as a witch? “What did she take?"
“A treasure chest, about yea big,” Alick said, again holding his hands about two feet apart.

Either Alick thought everything was about two feet wide, or he was prone to underestimating. 




The Binding Witch and the Fortune Taker
The Kate Roark Magic Series Book 1


The Binding Witch and the Fortune Taker is the first in a series and a 17,500 word novelette.


Growing up homeschooled on the Renaissance Festival circuit is weird enough, but when you're the daughter of a powerful binding witch who makes a living as a fortune teller, and your best friend is a middle-aged sari vendor, weird is relative.



Fifteen-year-old Kate Roark desperately wants to be a witch but isn't - yet. It's not likely at her age until she meets the Fortune Taker and gets a taste of unimaginable power - but at what cost?



Forced to choose between keeping stolen power or making her magic dreams come true, her ultimate decision throws her entire world into question.

Described as "book candy", and "compulsively readable," The Binding with and the Fortune Taker is the first in the Kate Roark Magic Series from emerging YA fantasy writer, Laura Rich.





Laura Rich is an emerging author of young adult fantasy fiction about witches. She loves to read in a hammock with a glass of iced tea, bake cookies, garden and dress up for Halloween as (you guessed it) a witch. She lives in Texas with her family and works as full-time project manager. Magic may be involved in pulling all this off.
