Olivia is a (mostly) ordinary girl who loves thrift stores and baking, but she’s about to learn the secrets of her extraordinary past.
Alfred is the blind, charismatic young heir to a magical crime family. When Olivia’s mother is kidnapped, Olivia has no choice but to accept Alfred’s help.
They travel to the Hidden Lands, a parallel world of old magic and modern pop culture—the world of Olivia’s ancestors—the world her mother fled after making a bad bargain with the magical Mafia. Alfred puts his position on the line to defend Olivia against his family’s conniving plans. Maybe he has morals . . . or maybe he’s just falling in love. But can Olivia trust him?
When Olivia escapes from an attack by a curiously familiar sorceress, she learns that Alfred’s family isn’t the only thing Mom was hiding from. The most dangerous enemy of all is much closer . . .
