Beyond the Black Door is a young adult dark fantasy about unlocking the mysteries around and within us—no matter the cost …
Everyone has a soul. Some are beautiful gardens, others are frightening dungeons. Soulwalkers—like Kamai and her mother—can journey into other people’s souls while they sleep.
But no matter where Kamai visits, she sees the black door. It follows her into every soul, and her mother has told her to never, ever open it.
When Kamai touches the door, it is warm and beating, like it has a pulse. When she puts her ear to it, she hears her own name whispered from the other side. And when tragedy strikes, Kamai does the unthinkable: she opens the door.
A.M. Strickland’s imaginative dark fantasy features court intrigue and romance, a main character coming to terms with her asexuality, and twists and turns as a seductive mystery unfolds that endangers not just Kamai’s own soul, but the entire kingdom …

I’ve always known my family had its secrets. What I didn’t know was just how big those secrets were.
When I, Wren Jacobsen, head off to college at Wicklow Academy, I assume the hardest part will be upholding my family’s legacy. One they’ve drilled into my head since before I could walk. That or winning the bet I made with my on-and-off-again high school boyfriend not to sleep with anyone the entire semester.
But Wicklow isn’t at all what I expected. Wicked Academy, as the other students call it, is one of four premiere magic academies created to train witches and warlocks to fight the dark magic rapidly growing around the world.
Not only does magic exist, but my family is one of the elites, sworn to fight evil in all its forms.
Now my days are filled with classes like Incantations, Potions and Herbs, and Magical History. And I’ve caught the eyes of two upperclassmen — my older brother’s best friend and the leader of the school’s not-quite-so-secret society. Too bad I made that stupid wager.
With the dark arts becoming stronger every day, Wicklow has found a way to transfer someone’s magic to another, which means only the best students will get to keep their powers.
As I juggle classes and struggle to keep my pants on, I’m thrown into a group with my long-time rival Elaine Astor. If we can’t bury our years-old grudge, we might both lose our newfound powers for good.
