The seasons are changing in Moa Bend and everyone is preparing for the Autumn Balance ritual, but Flynn Hawthorn feels anything but balanced. The more she learns about her magick, the more she craves the power.
Dark thoughts plague her visualizations and an insidious power creeps through her veins. She is stricken with debilitating headaches and finds herself seeking the comfort of solitude, and avoiding contact with family and friends—even Hazel.
When news of a faery genocide in Southeil reaches Flynn, she jumps at the chance to sneak into the realm of Magdelana, the Shadow Witch, and retrieve a powerful magickal item from the debris.
Flynn wants to believe her actions are her own, but somewhere in the darkness she knows The Shadow Calls.
