Blackmouth, Scotland. After managing to bury a vicious witch with her elemental magic, Georjie is horrified to learn entombing the spellcaster in soil has enabled the dark woman to rise again . . and time is running out.

When the vengeful hag’s shadowy pet demon comes after her, Georjie narrowly escapes into the Fae realm. There, she’s warned against returning to face the danger by someone who has tangled with the witch before. She’s encouraged to start a new life within the protection Queen Elphame’s realm can provide. But Georjie won’t let the monster roam free, even if it means risking her own life.
Can Georjie unlock her magic or will the black witch claim her ashes?
