Praise for The Magnolia League:
"[T]he author evokes an atmospheric Southern setting while taking readers through Alex's discovery of, seduction by, and repulsion to the League's dark secrets to beauty, wealth, and power... dreadlocked Alex is a funny, likable, and stubborn outsider, and the cliffhanger ending should leave fans of romantic fantasy eager for more."
"I was mesmerized as I watched Alex, a girl raised on a California commune, learning to navigate Savannah high society. This is a story infused with romance and dark magic, and I couldn't put it down. I'm a huge Katie Crouch fan, and this book will make you one, too."
-Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of Gods in Alabama and Backseat Saints
"The perfect mix of humor, romance, mystery and the supernatural, it provides ample entertainment yet leaves room for a sequel."
"Katie Crouch's The Magnolia League is mysterious, magical, and alluring. Crouch's voice is both humorous and intense, lending itself well to the novel's darker undercurrents and its richly southern flavor."
-Faria Stolarz, bestselling author of the Blue is for Nightmares series and the Touch series
