Magic Lost, Trouble Found by Lisa Shearin

Buy it Now!

"Magic Lost, Trouble Found" tells the story of Raine Banares. As she introduces herself, "My name is Raine Benares. I'm a seeker. The people who hire me are usually happy when I find things. But some things are better left unfound..."

As a seeker, Raine is a magician of moderate powers, something she knows and fully accepts. Unfortunately her life is about to be turned upside down as one of her friends, a semi-reformed thief, gets himself in trouble trying to steal an amulet. Raine puts the amulet on to keep it protected, and discovers that it won't come off! 

The longer Raine wears the amulet the stronger her own ability with magic grows. She also has become the target of just about every bad guy in the city! Raine soon learns that this is because the amulet is the key to an ancient, soul-stealing, stone. The amulet has latched onto her, something that wasn't supposed to be possible, and now she has to find a way to get rid of it with out getting killed by her enemies, the amulet itself, losing her soul to the stone, or letting her enemies get a hold of the stone! Raine certainly has her hands full.
