Safety is staying in her family home,
facing the forces outside is her fate…
how can she balance the magic required?
Oh yes, her extended family is exasperating on a day-to-day basis, but 16-year-old Voya knows they love her and that she’d do anything to keep them safe in mid-21st century Toronto.
Now the Trinidadian-Canadian teen pleads for a second chance to claim her Calling as a witch, through a task to be set by her ancestor.
But this task is brutal, far beyond what anyone in her extended family experienced in their Calling – ‘destroy her first love.’
Time is of the essence as Voya must fall in love with someone and then eliminate them…or her little sister will die, and her entire family will lose its long-held magic!
Love match via genetic blood test?
Cozying up to a rival magic family?
Surely there must be another way…
