From the bestselling author of Mexican Gothic comes a magical novella of revenge and redemption.
Yalxi, the deposed Supreme Mistress of the Guild of Sorcerers, is on a desperate mission. Her lover and confidant seized her throne and stole the precious diamond heart, the jewel that is the engine of her power. Yalxi sets out to regain her magic and find a weapon capable of destroying the usurper. But this will mean turning to unlikely allies and opening herself up to unpleasant memories that have been suppressed for many years. For Yalxi is no great hero, but a cunning sorceress who once forged her path in blood—and must reckon with the consequences.
Set in a fantastical land where jewels and blood provide symbiotic magical powers to their wearers, The Return of the Sorceress evokes the energy of classic sword and sorcery, while building a thoroughly fresh and exciting adventure ripe for our era.
“Bestseller Moreno-Garcia (Mexican Gothic) packs an impressive plot into limited space in this dark sword-and-sorcery secondary world fantasy. After Yalxi’s childhood friend turned lover, Xellah, steals the Diamond Heart that powers her magic, Yalxi is ousted as Master of the Guild of sorcerers and imprisoned… This well-plotted novella zips along with the darkly fascinating Yalxi at the helm.”
