Everyone is cursed.

Professional Curse-Breaker Rudy Renfrew lives one step ahead of eviction in Glasgow. He's a man about town, equally as connected to the university as he is the homeless community. He lives and works in the city with one foot in the peripheries, the magic-touched otherworld where ghosts and deities dwell. It's a path he's become familiar with, even if few people walk it.

When he's hired to find a missing teenage girl, however, he soon finds himself facing things he never has before. Curses more vicious than anything he's seen are cropping up around the city, all showing signs of malicious intent. Even with help from his lawyer friend, his roommate's fascinating one-night stand, and the god of the subway, Rudy can't find answers in Glasgow.

To save the girl and his home, he'll have to venture outside his beloved city into a world of magic far more chaotic and untamed than the one he knows. Even if he can harness the magic of the wilds in time, the evil presence over Glasgow may be too much for a lone Curse-Breaker to handle.

Reviews for Wild Magic

"The search for both identity and magic propels Ledger’s entertaining if slightly disjointed debut fantasy. Readers of folkloric fantasy will have plenty of fun with this one." - Publishers Weekly

"Wild Magic is like Jessica Jones with a wicked twist of the occult. It's an addictive read, and you'll be as enthralled by master code-breaker (and master scoundrel) Rudy Renfrew as I was!" - Adam Sass, award-winning author of Surrender Your Sons and The 99 Boyfriends of Micah Summers
