Exploited as a child medium, Emily Adams escaped to grow up on the streets-and hit rock-bottom. She took shelter with the prestigious Northern Circle, intent on staying only long enough to get back on her feet. But the Circle is still reeling from a devastating supernatural attack and betrayal. And vengeful High Council of Witches investigator Gar Remillard is determined to make Em surrender the truth-and disband the Circle forever.
When Em's psychic ability allows her to see Gar is haunted by a formidable ghost, her attempts to free him challenge Gar's rugged French Canadian heart and rancorous loup-garou instincts. But even as their new alliance and past connection kindles into raging desire, a malevolent force rises up to destroy them-the Circle and even the High Council.
With all she's grown to love on the line, Em must draw on her darkest nightmares and alliances with the dead to outwit and out magic a force who can imprison souls with a flick of the fingers and command legions of wraiths with one word. . .
