Introducing Deanna Browne and “Demon Rising,” Arriving This Month from Black Opal Books

Today we welcome another of my fellow Black Opal Books authors. Deanna Browne is a debut author, whose love for magic is mixed with a strong creative streak. Check out a bit about her and her first book, Demon Rising

Magic Isn’t Dead by DeAnna Browne

I love magic, and it started way before Harry Potter. I love reading about it, dreaming about it, watching movies with magic as the major part of the plot, etc. You name it. Hence, such is the reason why my novel, Demon Rising, centers around magic and demons.

While my novel is pure fiction, I love to find connections to magic in the real world. For example, I researched Solomon and his role in ancient magic for my novel. I also recently found in Chicago that the Newberry Library is calling for the public to help translate 17th Century books on witchcraft and magic. One in particular is called “The Book of Magical Charms.” This book is thought to be written by two witches in the 1600s in England. It contains spells on how to cheat at dice and talk to the spirits.

Whether you’re a believer or not, the history is fascinating, and it sparks my imagination. With so much in this scientific world not yet known, it’s fun to think about what may be.

If you want to journey with me to the “what if” and the unknown, check out my debut novel, Demon Rising, published by Black Opal Books.


Thirty years ago, dark magicians unleashed new power on the earth fueled by demons. Governments toppled, millions died and magicians ended up on top of the food chain.

Twenty-four-year-old Becca survives these dangerous times by relying on her wits, her fists, and the limited goodwill of her boss, a local crime lord. When news comes of a fire back home and the family she left behind dead, she realizes her dark past has finally caught up to her.

On the hunt for her missing sister, she must rely on Darion, a treacherous ex-boyfriend with ties to the local coven for back-up. Problem is he’s a pyromancer that can’t be trusted, especially with her heart. Becca’s forced to navigate a dangerous web of deceit and must decide what’s she’s willing to sacrifice to save her sister.
