"I'm really excited to get Charms onto the shelves...With its themes of Girl Power and family bonds, it's a fun book for a wide age range." Anna Augason, Santa Cruz Library (Staff Pick)
The excitement and danger of the French Quarter on Halloween night introduces Emerald, Mia, and Terra (and Cheddar ) to DESolE Marchand, a frightening nemesis with a deep connection to their past. While DESolE fights to gain possession of the secret book, luring a gang of teenagers under the power of her conjures to help her, the girls seek to repair their bond with Eva, hoping to drive away the dangers and devastating secrets that DESolE holds. How far will the Laurent brothers go to get what they want, Colin bargaining with DESolE, and Ryan, now even more torn between his brother and Emerald's fiercely independent nature? To save the integrity of their family, and their friends, the Tempest sisters must dig deeper to learn how to control their powers over physics.
Conjures is the second book in Leslie Calderoni's Tempest Trinity, a smart new Young Adult trilogy packed with mystery, girl power, and the magic of science.
