Title: Journey To New Salem (The Witches of Vegas 2)

Author: Mark Rosendorf

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Book Blurb:

The Witches of Vegas are back, and their lives will never be the same again.

A year has passed since The Witches of Vegas saved the city from the evil Wiccan vampire, Valeria. Since then, the show has hit an all-time high. So has the romance between teen witch Isis Rivera and teenage magician, Zack Galloway.

Things couldn't be any better for them until Isis develops seizures that cause her power to spiral out of control. Fires and earthquakes are just the beginning of the chaos caused by the misfired witchcraft. Unable to find a cure, Isis' family journeys to New Salem, a fabled village of witches which may or may not even exist. Meanwhile, Zack ends up face to face with the only being who may have a cure...Valeria. But does he dare pay her price?


Isis ran back behind the wall. She then commanded

the illusion of herself behind the far left wall to step

through and stare out into the audience with a hand on

its hip. It received a collective gasp. To them, it was as

if Isis had stepped through one wall on one side of the

stage, and then come out of another wall on the

opposite side of the stage. She had practiced this many

times, but this was the best she had ever pulled it off. It

was now time to bring it home…


A pain ran through Isis’ chest. It felt like a mallet

slamming against her heart. She tried to take a deep

breath, but it was a struggle, like sucking a watermelon

down her throat. An image formed in her head. It was

Valeria, the Wiccan vampire who turned their lives

upside down. Isis hadn’t thought about her, or the

torture she endured at her hands, in a long while. Why

now all of a sudden, and while her chest screamed in


Isis leaned her back against the wall. Everything

circled as if she were in the eye of a tornado. She had

felt this sensation before, but never with such intensity.

Her hands trembled. Something was happening, but she

didn’t know what. “Not again, not right now.” She

blinked her eyes rapidly. It’s been over a year since

Valeria was in their lives. She demanded of her brain to

never think of her again. Time to refocus on the now.
