Now she finds herself back in her old apartment dragging her husband’s failure in a bag with her broken dreams. The twins are struggling with the significant life downgrade. Her husband’s depression smothers any lingering happy thoughts that managed to grow like weeds through concrete.
As Seraphina reacquaints herself with the rules of survival, she takes steps that shake the foundation of the ideal family she tried to construct.
When Seraphina’s circle becomes a target, what punishment is she willing to dole out and what will she be forced to endure when she finds herself caught up in the midst of fire?
