Seven cursed friends.
A powerful revelation.
One girl’s decision will determine the fate of their world.
Cecily Daye is no stranger to being an outsider. Though she’s always been able to count on her six friends who shared the same evil omen. But the deeper they venture into the mysterious Wild Woods, the more the power within her grows and struggles to break free. And when even she struggles to explain her erratic behavior, Cecily is horrified to see the same looks of fear on the faces of her closest friends and the man she’s grown to love.
After she learns the true nature of her destructive powers and sees the magical arms race that crops up in response, Cecily worries she won’t be able to ward off the darkness building within. When a shocking revelation comes to light, Cecily must make an impossible decision: stand her ground to protect her friends or hide herself away in the hopes of saving the world.
The Downs is the second enchanting book in the Sevens YA fantasy series. If you like magical realms, unbreakable friendships, and a touch of romance, then you’ll love Julie Anne Nelson’s charming coming-of-age story.
