Saving him could end her world. When the Wizard Council sends Gia Kearns to the small town of Branford, Connecticut, she thinks life in hiding with her family, friends, and Arik in tow won't be all that dreadful. But she was wrong. Nick struggles to control his growing powers, Deidre and Pop are getting close, and a neighbor girl captures Arik's attention. Jealousies and mistrusts arise within the tight group, making life in the idyllic East Coast town anything but charming. As Gia and Nick jump to some of the most stunning libraries in search for the remaining Chiavi, a new threat arises within the libraries. During one of their searches, Gia trips a trap door in one of the libraries, sending her and Bastien to a wasteland full of danger and secrets. To return to her family and friends, Gia will have to make a sacrifice, one that will cost her someone she loves.
Saving him could end her world.
Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up are of her eccentric, Irish grandmother's animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical. When she's not writing or hanging out with her family, she haunts libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or reads someplace quiet.
