Izzie comes from a long line of powerful female witches. She’s the daughter of Amelie Vaillancourt, the matriarch leader of the Vaillancourt Coven, one of the oldest Covens in New Orleans.
For the last 25 years, Izzie has put her life on hold to help the Savior, Tess Mackenzie, fulfill her destiny and save the paranormal world. She’s now ready to chart her path, she’s just not sure what that is yet. The Vaillancourt Family used to be known in the French Quarter for their herbal remedies using nature’s bounty, so she decides the best way to help herself is to get back to her roots in herbal medicine and open an apothecary in the middle of the French Quarter.
However, magic has a firm grip on Izzie. Her older sister Serafine is angry that Izzie was taken from her for the last twenty-five years. She resents the sisterly bond Izzie and Tess have. Her anger starts her down a very dark and dangerous path and sets off a chain reaction. Then one of Izzie’s shop girls, Chloe goes missing and is found dead in a cemetery with what looks like cult markings on her. Another goes missing but turns up alive the next day with some of the same markings.
Vaillancourt’s family secrets that were once thought long dead and buried are getting brought to the surface, and she’s dragged back into the paranormal world she is so desperately trying to break free from. When Izzie starts investigating the cult markings, she realizes Serafine is at the center of everything. Izzie is in a race against time and black magic forces as she tries to save her sister from the dark path she is headed down.
Will Izzie be too late to save her sister? Will others be collateral damage in her fight for her sister’s soul? And will Izzie turn to the very thing that she’s trying to break free from to help her on her quest?
