Tormented by the fate she condemned her mother to, and by the lies she’s forced to tell to cover it up, Adele scours Storm-ravaged New Orleans for the truth about her family’s magical past. But every turn leads her back to the one person she’s determined to forget: Niccolò Medici. Not even the multitude of enchanted locks on the attic door trapping Nicco within can break their connection.
Sensing Nicco calling to Adele, Isaac tries relentlessly to keep her from exploring
paths too dark that would endanger them all. But a new threat is rising: the Medici’s
presence has attracted something else to New Orleans…an older enemy, one that will
bring Isaac’s haunted past to life, test the witches’ friendships, and jeopardize Adele
and Isaac’s blossoming relationship.
In this spellbinding continuation of The Casquette Girls saga, Adele must draw on
the past—from seventeenth-century Florence, a time bubbling with alchemy and
fraternal betrayal—and sort history from fantasy if she is to have any chance of saving
her mother, her coven, and her magic.
Alys Arden was raised by the street performers, tea leaf-readers, and glittering drag
queens of the New Orleans French Quarter. She cut her teeth on the streets of New
York and has worked all around the world since. She either talks too much or not at all.
She obsessively documents things. Her hair ranges from eggplant to cotton-candy
colored. One dreary day in London, she missed home and started writing The Casquette Girls.
Her debut novel garnered over one million reads online before it was acquired by Skyscape in a two book deal. Her second book is due out winter 2016.
Alys is represented by ICM. And she still plans to run away with the circus one star
