Inayat isn't a witch. She's a not-quite-ordinary twenty-something, screwing up her life one failed date at a time. But when she dumps the wrong magician, Inayat finds herself in a bubbling cauldron of paranoid fear.
The arrival of an unusual bag of jewellery heralds an alarming increase in frightening events, dragging Inayat and her friends into the magical web spun by her adversary. He wants something Inayat has and he's prepared to take her spirit if she resists.
Inayat has only dabbled in magic before, but now she must learn fast or lose for all eternity. She's got plenty of fight in her, but is it enough, or will she succumb to the hatred of a man who just can't lose?
