A mix of dark thoughts, diabolical plots, and, if local chatter is to be believed, vampire DNA. After all, her father is from Romania. Everyone else in Nebraska is about as American as an apple pie . . . wrapped in a flag . . . on the Fourth of July. Spider stew. That's what Anika is made of.

Baker of cupcakes, maker of trinkets, half-witch, half-dragon, dowser, alchemist . . . Why couldn't I just be Jade?Show more
