Since the age of 15, Morgaine Palmer dreamed of joining the Circle of Light, an elite sect of covens, tasked with protecting witches from demonic attack. The young witches fortunate enough to join the COL’s ranks gain honor, prestige, and in Morgaine’s case, a break from a tyrannical father. Everything is going to plan until her older sister gets engaged to the Grand Witch of Illinois, Lord Lincoln Winston. The charismatic leader is beloved by all and, in no time, wins the hearts of the Palmer family. However, Morgaine soon realizes that her future brother in law is keeping a dark secret.
After a failed attempt to uncover it, she finds herself on the wrong side of the law. She is shunned from the enchantment community and forced to leave her loved ones behind. Proving her innocence seems impossible. But little does Morgaine know, some notable strangers have taken an interest in her situation, each harboring their own reason for wanting her vindicated. Will Morgaine accept their help to clear her name or leave the door to her old life closed forever?
