Magnolia signs Watty-Winning M. Dalto's Latest

Veering off into romantic territory, Magnolia is excited to add M. Dalto’s latest novel to their 2019 - 2020 collection. Pitched as Graceling meets the A Count of Thorns and Roses series, Dalto’s New Adult Romantic Fantasy follows the Cortova sisters, Lilia and Cassandra, members of an elite assassin group known as The Guild. Lilia uncovers a betrayal and leads to her disappearance. Cassandra, believing her sister is dead, takes Lilia’s place among The Guild, but needs to find out the truth of what happened to her sister — before the same fate finds her.

At the heart of this romance novel is also the story of the bond of sisterhood, and the question of whether or not blood is truly the strongest bond.
