Mystic Invisible By Ryder Hunte Clancy
Young Adult Fantasy; Paperback & ebook, 267 Pages; March 17, 2021 by Winter Goose PublishingScotland.
Where fantasy, mystery, and folklore abound. A place of untold stories and forgotten paths. A place where legends run awry. Fifteen-year-old Monte moves to the mystically jeopardized Highlands of Scotland and discovers that life as a Celtic wizard is anything but easy.
Whisperings of abnormal enchantments and vicious cat siths grip the small town he now calls home. Fear is at the helm and the instigator is unknown. An indefinite moratorium on magic is enforced. In a race against darkness, Monte and his friends must choose who to trust before time runs out, even if it means breaking some rules and facing danger head on.

MEET The CHARACTERS
As an avid reader I always enjoy a good character blurb, so naturally I had to write some of my own (spoiler free) for my Mystic Invisible crew:
Monte Darrow: Witty, awkward, and lovable, Monte is finally of age in the Mystic world. Then his family moves to Scotland where unrest runs high and danger lurks around every corner. And oh yeah, the use of magic is forbidden, a perfect recipe for teenage boredom. But that doesn't stop him from finding adventure and getting into a little (or a lot) of trouble along the way. While I love all my characters, there's a very endearing quality about Monte, with maybe just a small dose of angst. He’s the POV character for Mystic Invisible so I guess this relationship makes sense! Think of him as a hybrid between Percy Jackson and Peter Parker.
Garrick Darrow: Sturdy, athletic, and intelligent, Garrick has as much might as Monte has courage. Best friend and older brother to Monte, he is a good companion if not a little uptight. He's not sure what to think of Scotland. The enchanting country has a lot to offer, but will it be too much for him? Garrick is the serious and protective older brother; the “quiet one” with many dreams and ambitions. While I wouldn’t consider myself quite as bold or uptight as he is, we still share many of the same personality traits.
Cameron Basu: Smart, mysterious, and painfully quiet, Cameron keeps everyone guessing. It's quite possible she holds the information that the others are seeking but it's all about keeping her around long enough to get the answers. Cameron holds a special place in my heart. I feel a very motherly protection towards her, although she’s a tough one and can certainly hold her own. I love her silent strength that shines through in some very unique (if not sometimes frustrating) ways.
Finn Cornelius Smith: Curious and hungry for adventure, Finn is a bit of a troublemaker. The ultimate sidekick, he is a loyal friend and will stick with you even when things get dire. He's always up for some fun and still manages to get into plenty of mischief despite his Nanny's watchful eye and her rather extreme opinions. You can’t help but love Finn. He’s funny and wild and definitely keeps you on your toes. He’s the “baby” of the bunch but don’t let his younger age fool you: he’s got as much gumption as the other three put together!
About the Author
Ryder Hunte Clancy has lived most of her life in the desert but her heart belongs to the sea; her happy place, where brine and mist abound and allusive waves caress expansive stretches of compacted sand. A tried and true stay-at-home mom, she has just as much trouble keeping up with her fictional, teenage characters as she does her three small children. Mystic Invisible is her debut novel, the inspiration of which was gleaned from her husband’s homeland of Scotland, where fantasy, mystery, and folklore are rich and hints of adventure linger around every corner.
