The Magical Girls of a Cat God
By the 21st century, the gods of Egypt have gained worshipers around the globe. To help fulfill the needs of their many followers, they have enlisted the kissalapsi. Given the power to transform into humanoid cats by the god Bastet, these teen girls are capable of casting spells in harmony with the powers of the god they serve. The system has worked well for centuries, but one god, Anubis, skirted the rules when he chose Rehema to serve him. Struggling with her own past and the mistrust of the others, Rehema created a daily routine that limits her interactions with others. The isolation has given her time to discover secrets that allows her to use power far greater than any of the other kissalapsi. Power that she will have to teach others as a long silenced threat to the world begins to rise again.
At eleven, Edith has her routine in life down pat. Ride the night bus downtown, help Cornelius with the artifact store, then ride the bus back in the morning and go to bed, all while avoiding as many people as she is can. Why, then, are they making her teach the new recruit how to transform into her cat-like form and use the power of whatever Egyptian god she serves? On top of that, there is the new, overly energetic, neighbor girl to deal with.
