A crippled leg and latent magical abilities aren’t Cassy Mae’s worst problems. A stalker, who lusts for her growing magic, seeks to possess her.
Cassy Mae’s mother raised her to hate magic. Her fears were so strong, she almost refused to go live with her juju-practicing grandmother when her mother died. But, she had nowhere else to go. To her surprise, even though she was bullied in school because she limps, Cassy Mae found peace in the hills of Docket’s Diggings. Then, the Markhams moved to town, spreading a strange malaise wherever they go.
The teen soon becomes the target of Jamilla Markham’s attention. Can Cassy Mae escape the danger hiding beneath Jamilla’s seeming friendship?
