Effigest by Amy Campbell

What use is magic if it can’t protect the ones you love?

Outlaw mage Jack Dewitt already failed his wife and his town, and he’ll be damned if he’s going to lose his daughter. Spurred by guilt, he seeks the one person who might know where she went…

Politician Malcolm Wells had everything, but he hadn’t counted on falling for Blaise Hawthorne, a young mage imprisoned as a war criminal. But Blaise is running out of time, and there’s no one left for Malcolm to turn to—except an outlaw with a grudge.

When Jack storms into town demanding answers, the men form an uneasy alliance. Jack and Malcolm plan a bold gambit, and it might be crazy enough to work—that is, until the nightmares of their dark pasts threaten all they care about. 

A gritty yet uplifting fantasy set in an Old West-inspired atmosphere featuring found family, unbreakable bonds, and men and women who are unapologetically true to themselves.
