Want to See the Cover of Jen McConnel’s DAUGHTER OF CHAOS?

Nothing is more terrifying than the witch who wields red magic.

Witches must choose the path they will follow, and Darlena Agara is no exception. She’s been putting
it off long enough, and in her case, ignoring it has not made it go away. In a moment of frustration,
Darlena chooses to follow Red Magic, figuring she had outsmarted the powers that be, since there’s
no such thing as Red Magic. But alas, Darlena’s wrong (again) and she becomes a newly declared Red

Her friends are shocked and her parents horrified by the choice Darlena has made. As a Red Witch,
she now governs one third of the world’s chaos. She is the walking personification of pandemonium,
turmoil, and bedlam, just as the patrons of Red Magic would have it to be.
But Darlena believes there must be more to Red Magic than chaos and destruction, and she sets out on
a journey to achieve balance. Only doing so puts her at odds with the dark goddess Hecate, who simply
will not allow Darlena to quit. She encourages Darlena to embrace who and what she is and to leave
good magic to the good witches. If only Darlena could, life would be simple, and she would not be the
Daughter of Chaos.

DAUGHTER OF CHAOS is the first in a YA paranormal trilogy.

Ready?!  Okay, here you go!

Isn’t it wonderful?  I love how fierce Darlena’s face is fierce but determined (and that hair!)
