Chloe Sabourin's world was turned upside down three times over when she learned that the unspeakable murders in her native New Orleans--the ones that nearly claimed the life of her friend Lucy--were committed by her own mother, the dark witch Thisbe. Moving on from that is the toughest thing she's ever had to do.
Now a new series of ritualistic killings suggests that Thisbe is plotting again. Chloe seeks help from the mysterious Mama Legba, even though she's unsure whether or not she can trust the Voodoo Queen. But when her boyfriend Piers vanishes, all signs point to Thisbe, and Chloe must quickly learn all she can from Mama Legba to save the one person she has left . . . even if it means bringing down her mother.
