In Wicked Castle, a story about two adoptive sisters as different as night and day whose rivalry and catfights turn a kingdom on its head, first-time novelist Jenna Bora exercises a talent for literary magic that is characterized by Internet effects and hardcore gaming’s virtuality, among other things.

Julianna Hardly and Fae Woodley, young, innocent babes when they lost their sets of respective parents in the Kingdom of Sienna’s third Knights vs. Warriors War are adopted by Sienna’s King Conrad and Queen Maribel. Under the roof of the royal spouse’s castle, they part ways, philosophically and in practice – each intent on their own pursuits and each assured that she is her sister’s better.

Early on, Fae finds magical works in the royal library and quickly becomes a precocious practitioner of the magic arts, eventually being able to go places on invisible dragons, giving her parents fits and making Julianna jealous. Julianna, meanwhile, becomes a fashionable beauty – a disciple of Taylor Swift, an Elizabeth Arden aficionado, and livens her day by flirting with boys with names like Julio. King, queen, subjects, magical beings, and ghosts soon find out what hit them in this perfectly turned out work of teenage brattiness.
