One binding destroyed her family; could another save it?
At thirty-six-years-old, history professor Aurelie is resigned to a childless existence. It’s not her age – it’s the absence of male Unseen. Her species has been so desperate to hide among humans that it is quietly dying out. Now her family is broken; eager to leave behind a painful past, Aurelie accepts a teaching position in Nara, Japan. But she’s unprepared for the future she finds…
Twenty-two-year-old Kazuki is the favored son of the Hayashi family – a clan of Unseen that has not only survived in Japan, but thrived. Though he knows hundreds of Unseen, he’s unprepared for Aurelie and the overwhelming attraction he feels for her, a biological imperative to mate.
Or perhaps a magical one… For, as Kazuki and Aurelie grow closer, the reasons for hiding become clear.
And they are hungry.
A Magical Imperative treads a delicate line between reality and fantasy, painting a detailed picture of cross-cultural romance while also adding subtle strokes of whimsy and fate. The first book of a series, it’s a sure winner for fans of atmospheric writing, intelligent fantasy, and character-driven plots.
