"Family bonds create the magic in this stirring fantasy." --Kirkus Reviews

It's days before your eighteenth birthday, but your mother is missing and suddenly you have supernatural powers. What are you willing to face to discover the truth of who you really are?

After years of traveling the world, black identical twins Aurora and Arden think they've settled into normalcy in Ohio. But days before their eighteenth birthday, the snarky twins develop powers in telekinesis and telepathy―at the same time that their famous mother, who's on tour in London, disappears.

Searching for answers and determined to rescue her, the sisters unearth truths that threaten to extinguish their bond and demolish their strength as individuals. Can they trust their beguiling, newly discovered British cousins when they barely trust one another? Should they heed the warnings of their immortal grandmother, a Patoi-chatting goddess, who says she's friendly with The Fates and can see inside a person's very soul?

In order to succeed in their quest, these goddess twins must work together, master their powers, and unveil a horrifying, century-old family mystery. Otherwise, they may not live to see eighteen―or their mother again.

Reviews

" . . . an impressive, commanding novel about black girl magic . . . The Goddess Twins is an emotive and powerful feminist novel that inspires the innate goddess in every girl.." --Foreword Reviews
"Family bonds create the magic in this stirring fantasy." --Kirkus Reviews
"The Goddess Twins is a fantastic ride, viewed through the eyes of girls on the verge of adulthood . . . Twins Arden and Aurora are at once teenagers tackling contemporary issues as well as immortals in training, learning to harness their supernatural gifts in the face of adversity. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, and can't wait for it to reach its readers!" -- Devi S. Laskar, award-winning author of The Atlas Of Reds And Blues
"If you are ready to claim the superpowers you know have always been within you, Arden and Aurora--The Goddess Twins--are here to light your way! . . . Don't be scared if you experience some flashes of The Matrix subway scene; spaces in Sense8; channel a bit of Octavia Butler as well as Zadie Smith--maybe even Riot Baby, too." --Valerie Haynes Perry, author and motivational writing coach of valeriehaynesperry.com, motivationalwriting.com
"The Goddess Twins is an addictive YA novel that will live on in the minds of readers long after the final page. Williams weaves characters so real they leap out of the story and into your imagination . . . A spellbinding tale rich with enchantment and lore. Girl-power meets modern magic. Unforgettable." -- Alexis Marie Chute, award-winning author of The 8th Island Trilogy
