“Made From Magic” by M.B. Nasdeo has been released worldwide. This 440-page fantasy novel follows Marissa, a woman nearing middle age who is unenthusiastic about her life and struggling to find her place in the world. During her annual visit to the Renaissance Faire, her world is turned upside down when she’s transported to a medieval world of mystery and magic. Discovering she’s the heir to the crown of Avonridge, Marissa begins an arduous journey to ascend the throne – and contend with the forces that stand in her way. 

Subverting common fantasy stories about damsels in distress, Nasdeo’s compelling, intriguing tale places an unlikely heroine at the center of the action. She learns to swing a sword, faces wizards, a dragon, and the forces of pure evil, and throughout her adventure, discovers just how strong she truly is.

From the back cover:

A contemporary woman named Marissa, bordering on middle age, is bored and tired of her uninspired life. She looks forward to the Renaissance Faire every year, but this year something is different. This year, when Marissa steps through the gates into the fantasy world of knights and damsels, jesters and wizards, this year the atmosphere is electric. Conspiratorial winks and head nods, including her as if she were a starring character in this wonderful charade, flit all around her as she strolls along the concourse. Before she can truly comprehend what is happening, Marissa is swept up into a magical world of true Renaissance wizardry. 

Unbeknownst to her, Marissa is the heir to the crown of Avonridge, a medieval kingdom that requires her presence. In the days that follow, she is trained in the art of sword-play by a very mysterious knight who hides his face with a black, leather mask. When she leaves the familiarity of the Renaissance Faire grounds, she travels through field and forest to the castle of Avonridge to claim her throne. This journey, however, is not a stroll through the Faire concourse. This journey is fraught with traps, magic, and wizards. And this journey is only the first step in claiming the throne of Avonridge.
