Winter brings its own magic to the Roanoke Academy for the Sorcerous Arts.
Petite Rachel Griffin should be having an amazing freshman year. She has the Princess of Magical Australia and crazy, orphan Sigfried the Dragonslayer for friends, and a handsome sorcerer boyfriend romancing her with charms magical and otherwise. But otherworldly forces keep conspiring against the people and world she loves.
What she knows, she dare not tell.
Rachel’s perfect memory is a blessing…and a curse. While everyone around her can be made to forget the truth, Rachel cannot. When she runs afoul of the true force responsible for hiding these terrible secrets, Rachel must face her most desperate hour yet.
This on top of winter fairies, missing friends, Yule gifts, flying practice, and a rampaging ogre…oh, and schoolwork. Then there is the matter of the state of her heart and a certain undeniably attractive older boy…

Praise for Rachel Griffin and the Books of Unexpected Enlightenment:
“Lovecraft meets Narnia at Hogwarts.”
“The characters are great, the piled up mysteries pull you along, and while the story arc for this book comes to a satisfying conclusion, you’ll want more and more is hinted at.”
“If you need a series that is fun, engaging, suitable for adult fantasy lovers while appropriate for younger teenagers but does not shy away from some real but delicate issues such teenagers will face, The Raven, the Elf and Rachel and the whole Books of Unexpected Enlightenment series are for you.”
“I am so drawn into the work that I can connect with these characters and worry for them. When that happens, you know you have found something special, something to hold onto and read again and again. I look forward to the next installment of the series, knowing that danger looms in the world, and those who can see it will battle it, will stand for Good, even if they are young.”
