Fate Walks (Cavaldi Birthright Book 1) – Brea Viragh

In a world where magic is passed down along gender lines, what happens when a woman is born with her father’s magic?

Underground DJ and staunch introvert Astix Cavaldi is a hit on the Chicago music scene. She’s also guilty of the unthinkable by simply being born. An outcast in magical society for her unprecedented power, Astix finds her solitude rudely interrupted when she receives a message from her long-estranged family. There is a rising swell of darkness in their world. Much as her family distrusts her magic, it may be the one thing they need to save them.

Leonidas Voltaire is the golden only child of the head of the community that patrols all magic users. He’s taken an instant liking to Astix when he witnesses the long-lost daughter confront her family and stand up to him right after. As Leo tracks her movements for his father, Astix must use her power to defeat the mother of darkness threatening them, as well as fight her distrust of all things male. Evil beckons, love tempts, and Astix would rather be anywhere else. Romantically pursued by a man who works for the one organization she’s running from is not exactly her fondest wish.

When Darkness kidnaps her sisters, she’ll need Leo’s love, and a little bit of magic, to save them all.
