The Modern Girl’s Guide To Wishing
When childhood friends Amelia and Grace summon Helios, an ancient Genie, their wishes backfire horribly – forcing them to risk everything in an attempt to outsmart the most powerful being in the universe.
Though they both work at the largest ad agency in the city, Amelia and Grace have always dreamed of combining their creative talents to run an agency of their own. Lately though, doors have been opening at work for Grace while Amelia is getting left behind.
In a moment of drunken self-pity, Amelia accidentally brings HELIOS into their lives – along with a trio of magic wishes.
The brilliant, awkward and super lovable AMELIA inherited a powerful imagination that made her childhood unforgettable – but with the onset of adulthood, Amelia learned that the business world isn’t ready to embrace a plus-size, offbeat, hyper-creative geek who still wears her Mom’s glasses.
Amelia’s creative genius longs to be recognized in a world that has no intention of giving her a shot.
As a little girl, GRACE joined Amelia on the most ingenious flights of imagination, and the two dreamers took the greatest pleasure in being the oddballs of their neighborhood.
But, as she grew, Grace looked more like the women on magazine covers than the girl who enjoyed being an outsider. She’s still a nerd on the inside, but nobody can deny that her stunning looks are a factor in her new upwardly-mobile path.
Before history was rewritten, dominion over the realm of MAGIC rested solely in the hands of women.
That is, until one man saw magic as a means to consolidate power. The warlord HELIOS waged a crusade through the known world to destroy the female vessels of the mystic. He murdered countless women in order to make himself a god on earth. Two ancient women sacrificed themselves in order to imprison Helios within the PYXIS…
And now, centuries later, this mystical prison is about to find its way into Amelia’s possession.
