Meet your next favorite fantasy heroine.

Sweeping magic. Hidden realms. High-stakes intrigue. And she's only getting started.

If the demons don't kill her, Kate Finch might just outrun the murderers on her trail.

In London, her family and associates met gruesome ends at the hands of the deadly spirits. Boston delivers more of the same. So when her desperate flight brings her to the ruins of Salem, a town abandoned to accursed magic for a generation, she's ready to listen to the one person who might help.

August Swaine, the greatest sorcerer of the age—but his answer isn't at all what she expects.

The demons trail her, he claims, because she's a witch. She refuses to believe it. How could she possibly be a witch? But Swaine is intrigued. His secret experiments could use a skilled assistant. It's clear Kate has a knack for surviving mayhem, and a raw talent at the unseen arts.

She proves to be the perfect apprentice. Until her peculiar talents come under growing scrutiny from the highest circles of power in Boston. And when the hidden perils of Salem drag Swaine off into a twilight world of unstable magic, Kate is the only one who can save him.

If she can even reach him.

Can Kate unlock the infernal puzzle before the dangers close in on her? Has her witchcraft stirred an older mystery to life? And what will the demons do to stop her once she sets foot in the hidden realm to save her mentor?

Fast-paced and imaginative, this first novel in the trilogy introduces fantasy's next great heroine.

Unstoppable, unforgettable: Kate Finch.
