Book trailer: [link]
When an infamous criminal is unleashed from his prison, it has consequences for everyone in Carwick. Temperance Levinthal in particular…
Temperance is satisfied with her ordinary life. Dealing with her eccentric, childlike parents is all the excitement she needs. That changes when Alastair Byron returns home.
After a failed matchmaking attempt by her father, sparks fly between her and Alastair-just not the good kind.
They are forced together though, when they are implicated in a grisly murder. Their search for the truth leads them to a secret world beneath Carwick, filled with werewolves, wizards and other magical faey.
However, uncovering the truth is far more dangerous than they’d ever imagined.
There are secrets within secrets.
Even Alastair may be more than he seems.
This story comes from years of fangirl squee-ing and reading the likes of Harry Potter, Twilight, Lord of the Rings, Kelley Armstrong (particularly her Darkest Powers series) and Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series.
Like everyone else, we've dreamed of telling our own stories of fantasy and romance, adventure and magic. So, a few years ago, we decided to start writing our own. We really hope you guys like it! And you're willing to join us on this little adventure, wherever it may lead.
And if you squee, we'll be squee-ing too, cos that's all we ever wanted to do!
