Today I am happy to introduce to you Melissa Drake, a brand spanking new author to the YA/teen scene. Her first novel, Daughter of Mythos, was just released on July 16th of this year! Here is the synopsis:
Fifteen-year-old Nora Salvatore thinks wizards, fairies, dragons, and demons are the stuff of myth, but she is wrong. Nora is thrown head first into a life of magic and chaos after learning of a mysterious legend surrounding her birth and the magical powers she is supposed to possess. When an army of demons from a parallel world plans the eradication of mankind, only she can close the portals and keep the demons at bay. Can she learn to harness her new-found powers in time to stop them?
