The fourth book in Jenn Bennett’s critically beloved urban fantasy series, gutsy renegade mage and tiki bar owner Arcadia Bell faces the last danger standing between her old identity and the new future she desperately wants: herself.
Complicated does not begin to describe Arcadia Bell’s life right now: unnatural magical power, another brush with death, and a murderous mother who’s not only overbearing but determined to take permanent possession of Cady’s body. Forced to delve deep into the mystery surrounding her own birth, she must uncover which evil spell her parents cast during her conception... and how to reverse it. And fast.
As Cady and her lover Lon embark on a dangerous journey through her magical past, Lon’s teenage son, Jupe, sneaks off for his own investigation. Each family secret they uncover is darker than the last, and Cady, who has worn many identities — Moonchild, mage, fugitive — is about to add one more to the list.
