Truth & Lies Short-Story Contest Winners

MagisteriumSixteen-year-old Glen Morgan dreams of escaping her boring existence and traveling to outer space. But these dreams are dashed when her workaholic father is arrested because of his mysterious invention. It turns out, everything Glen thought was true (about her family, friends, even the government) are total lies. As she flees from her home and into the mysterious and magical world of the Magisterium, she has to completely reassess all of her beliefs.
