Magic, Myth, and Marvel

Nothing is more fun than re-visiting famous figures of myth and legend like Norse god Loki or the terrifying Dracula. In Mackenzi Lee's Loki: Where Mischief Lies, Thor's little brother and the Marvel villain we hate to love, takes a starring role in this origin story where heroism isn't as black and white as we'd like to believe. The Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennett introduces Theodora, a young woman determined to save her father from the brutal and notorious Vlad the Impaler.

The Lady Rogue

Some legends never die…

Traveling with her treasure-hunting father has always been a dream for Theodora. She’s read every book in his library, has an impressive knowledge of the world’s most sought-after relics, and has all the ambition in the world. What she doesn’t have is her father’s permission. That honor goes to her father’s nineteen-year-old protégé—and once-upon-a-time love of Theodora’s life—Huck Gallagher, while Theodora is left to sit alone in her hotel in Istanbul. Until Huck arrives from an expedition without her father and enlists Theodora’s help in rescuing him. Armed with her father’s travel journal, the reluctant duo learns that her father had been digging up information on a legendary and magical ring that once belonged to Vlad the Impaler—more widely known as Dracula—and that it just might be the key to finding him. Journeying into Romania, Theodora and Huck embark on a captivating adventure through Gothic villages and dark castles in the misty Carpathian Mountains to recover the notorious ring. But they aren’t the only ones who are searching for it. A secretive and dangerous occult society with a powerful link to Vlad the Impaler himself is hunting for it, too. And they will go to any lengths—including murder—to possess it.
