A hand--elegant in spite of the dirt, sweat, and blood that cake it--slowly reaches out of a crack in a window into the rain. It is a vision that haunts Willa and the catalyst to the discovery of her true self. Soon after seeing the hand, Willa and her boyfriend Simon, witches both, set off on a rescue mission. They are soon catapulted into the alluring but dangerous world of witches and witchcraft. The answers to all of their questions are now within reach, but they have also wandered into the middle of a deadly war in which many will stop at nothing to control the magic of the Six Gifts. Willa and Simon must now learn to harness their powers to protect their lives and the lives of their newfound friends before the blood moon arrives, or all will be lost.
