Title: The Witches of Vegas
Author: Mark Rosendorf
Genre: Young Adult
Where can Witches and their vampire mentor practice their powers without being discovered or persecuted?
By using their magic, the Witches of Vegas become the number one act performing on the Las Vegas Strip--a great achievement for them, but not so much for the magicians--who can't possibly keep pace.
Isis Rivera is the adopted fifteen-year-old daughter of The Witches of Vegas. Zack Galloway is the teenage nephew and assistant to the last magician left in the city. Although they should be rivals, when Valeria, a four-hundred-year-old witch with a long-seeded grudge against humanity arrives in Sin-City, both teens act to bring their families together to stop the evil hag in her tracks.
But can the combined witches' powers and the ingenuity of the magicians be enough to stop Valeria from taking over the city and possibly the world?
Sebastian’s voice boomed through the theater. “Ladies and
gentlemen, for the last five and a half years, you have had the
opportunity to experience The Witches of Vegas four nights
and three afternoons a week right here at the Sapphire Resort
and Casino’s main theater. But today, you will be the very first
audience to witness something truly spectacular!”
Isis’ shoulders tensed. A knot formed in the pit of her
stomach. She had levitated many times, but never in front of
more than four people. This time, it would be in front of over
four thousand strangers. Wow, goosebumps popped out all
over her arms and legs. She took deep breaths, just as they
taught her, in through the nose and out through the mouth. It
always helped calm her nerves. Right now, they really needed
“We are about to bring out a new, young witch to the
stage,” Sebastian explained. “She will have you believing that
a young girl can become lighter than air!”
“Lighter than air.” Isis closed her eyes and chanted under
her breath. “Lighter than air.” Her hands and feet tingled with
each step toward the stage. The magic flowed through her
veins like a steady leak from a faucet.
“Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for the
future goddess of magic, Isis!”
