Title: The Witches of Vegas


Author: Mark Rosendorf


Genre: Young Adult Fantasy


Book Blurb:


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?


Excerpt:


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

calming.


“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!”
