Octavia's magical lineage promised power and family, yet she can claim none of it. As a girl, her coven was attacked by a clan of witch hunters, and she lost almost everything. Eighteen years later, she's isolated herself from the few remaining members of her coven as she desperately searches for a way to reclaim her magic.
Raised in a family of witch hunters, Leif thinks he knows his enemy well. When fate places a coven directly in his path, he and his siblings devise a scheme to eliminate them. But when a devastating truth about his family comes to light, the plan goes awry, and everything he thought he knew turns to dust.
As witches and hunters begrudgingly join forces, they struggle to navigate their drastically opposing views of witchcraft. To avoid mutual destruction, they must search for the common ground that will allow them to work together to overcome a new enemy. But no amount of strategizing can predict just how wrong things will go when a deeper secret is revealed, and a dark, deadly power is roused from its slumber.
Without losing themselves in the process, Octavia and Leif must test the boundaries of magic and fight to overcome the traumas of their past. Together, they'll learn that light and dark do not always translate perfectly into good and evil.
