Beware of fairies. Or risk facing perilous consequences.
Fairies are menacing, petty, and vengeful beings who abduct human children and replace them with changelings who become dangerous as they grow. Alexa Bowman moves to Savannah from Chicago to live with her grandfather and finish high school. After they discover her parents’ criminal history, Alexa is mocked by some new classmates, but she is soon befriended by three other girls—Fae, Chloe, and Skye. A night out with her three new friends brings about mysterious physical and emotional changes for Alexa, and life in Savannah continues to get stranger and more menacing as time goes on. Can she discover the source of all this weirdness and put an end to it?
We are excited to announce that Nightmare in Savannah, our second Maverick title, is now available at your local bookstore, Barnes & Noble, comic shop, Amazon, and more!
Every Maverick title including this one, tells a story of self discovery through overcoming hurdles that seem insurmountable. Author Lela Gwenn tells the story of Alexa Bowman, as she struggles with family drama she can’t seem to leave in the past, a new school, powers she can’t quite seem to control, and a new love she never saw coming!
“I’m so excited to get Nightmare in Savannah out in the world! Mad Cave was so supportive of this weird queer bent on the girl power anti hero story . I hope people will connect to our story of the horror of being a weird teen and how love and friendship can save us.” - Writer, Lela Gwenn
Synopsis: Alexa moves to Savannah to get away from her past. Too bad her past is a Google search away and her parent’s criminal acts quickly make her an outcast.
