If you’re looking for a delightful little Halloween treat, check out my urban fantasy story, Magick Mirror.

And he can’t tell anyone, because the game his life has become now has consequences.

A wizard grants him the power of the Magick Mirror. But is that enough? Does Anders have the heart of a true hero?
