A whimsical, swashbuckling romp into a deeply imaginative world; Carlson's novel is as plucky and clever as its heroine. -- Soman Chainani, New York Times bestselling author of The School for Good and EvilAvast! Pirates, magic, girl hero and a gargoyle sidekick? YES!! MAGIC MARKS THE SPOT is an amazing debut, a funny, rollicking adventure featuring a take-no-prisoners heroine and a cast of colorful characters. I eagerly look forward to the next book. -- Sarah Prineas, author of The Magic Thief series and the Summerlands series"There's merriment and intrigue on the high seas in this debut novel...
