A breakup and a car accident are no way to start your seventeenth birthday.
For Theo Montgomery, that is exactly how it began. Her bad luck turns worse when she returns home from a school dance to find her house on fire--with her parents still inside. Following their deaths, Theo is sent to live with her estranged aunt in Salem, Massachusetts. If a new home and a new school aren't enough to deal with, Theo discovers her aunt has a secret: she is a witch. And so is Theo.
Theo must learn to keep her magic in check, lest the village's notorious witch hunters discover that magic has returned to the world after more than three hundred years. But how can she navigate a new school, new magical powers, and avoid the witch hunters, when she finds herself enjoying the company of one?
Trystan de Lancre is a dangerous witch hunter, but that doesn't keep Theo from wanting to discover more about him. Harboring secrets of his own, Trystan isn't the only perilous force in Salem. Something has returned to the village; something the witches believed to have been dead and buried long ago.
Salem's dark past rises to haunt Theo and the present-day witches, unraveling a shocking revelation: the real cause of the Salem Witch Trials.
