Kentwood grad Stevie Marie debuts her first YA novel

Stevie Marie, a Kent resident, author, and graduate of Kentwood Sr. High School, recently wrote and released ‘Blood Crescent,’ her debut Young Adult Paranormal Fantasy novel.

For a limited time – from Oct. 5 – 7 – it will be available for free on Kindle.

‘Blood Crescent’ debuted on Sept. 21, which is also her birthday.

Here’s a synopsis of the book:

A missing mother. A magical birthright. Can she uncover the secrets of her family legacy before the bloodline runs dry?

Sixteen-year-old Crystal Dylan thought magic only existed in storybooks. But everything changes when she finds out her long-departed mom isn’t dead: she was stolen away by the same power-hungry league now hunting her own enchanted blood. In search of answers, she must make sense of a hidden mystical realm and two mysterious protectors.

Victor is more than just the boy-next-door. As a shifter, he’s lost track of the many lives he’s led and the memories of his true self. But as he stands close to the beautiful Crystal, he can sense his past coming back into focus. So when dark forces threaten to drain Crystal’s powers, he may just have to risk an enchanted kiss that could save her life… or seal her fate.

With enemies closing in, Crystal must find her mom and uncover her magical destiny before her powers fall into the clutches of evil.

Blood Crescent is the first novel in the exhilarating Divine Series of YA paranormal fantasies. If you like hidden magical realms, fresh new takes on vampire lore, and heartfelt journeys of self-discovery, then you’ll love Stevie Marie’s spellbinding coming-of-age tale.
