New book!

I'm so excited! I've waited a long time to share my new book with you! It's YA gothic. It's dark and twisted. It's set in Cologne! There are Walpurgisnight revels, dark underground bars in Cologne, there's blood and magic and romance and death and everything in between.
Do you want to know what it's called?
The title is...

Between the Shadow and the Soul

Here's the summary:
21st Century Cologne
On the day of her sixteenth birthday Nela receives her Binding – a tattoo that’ll punish even the thought of magic with burning pain. In a world where the Brotherhood still burns witches at the stake, Nela has learned to fear her magical powers. But her powers are growing and refuse to be ignored. When Nela meets Darko, he shows her a hidden world of magic she can’t resist. 

Darko hates the Brotherhood with blind fervor for destroying his life. Except for revenge, there’s only one thing that keeps him going: the wish to bring his dead sister back to life. The only way to gain the necessary power is by summoning a demon with the help of a Necromancer and absorbing its demonic power. When his Master tells Darko that Nela is what they need for the ritual, Darko doesn’t hesitate to gain her trust. A trust he’ll have to betray. 

As Nela meets witches in the underground bars of Cologne and celebrates Walpurgisnight with magical folk from all over the world, she realizes that she doesn’t want to bow to the Brotherhood’s rules anymore. She wants to be free to live as a witch. Defying the Brotherhood could mean death by fire, but as Nela is pulled deeper into Darko’s world, she realizes that his darkness might be the true danger.

It's the first in a duology and it'll be out in December, probably Dec. 15th. 
You can add it on goodreads. And you can pre-order it.
The cover reveal is next week! I can't even put into words how gorgeous the cover is!
