The Five Stages of Magic

Book One Now Out!

The Magical Girl grew up. Rescued from a psychiatric hospital at sixteen, Sīd is thirty-seven, divorced, and an occult investigator at the Mirandola Club – once England’s premier club for dissolute sorcerers. 

Magical adventures have turned to awkwardness, scars and danger. With her parents dead, Sīd works for the man who rescued her, marking time in an endless grind of low-grade police actions for denizens of the occult.

But the foundations of her world are falling away: children are taken, a pact is made. Nightmares move in a place beyond worlds. Can Sīd and her best friend Ash –  a demon that lives in her mind – unravel the chain of threats before the conspiracy of centuries comes to fruition?

The Five Stages of Magic is the first fiction series from Dark Sheep Books — a contemporary fantasy for fans of Rivers of LondonAlex Verus, and Strange Magic. Bar the Gates is out now on Kindle ebook, with the paperback edition coming on April 28th!
