What if the ordinary family you crave finds you? Only they're not ordinary, neither are you, and neither are the vampire neighbours raising your twin sister.
An accident is all it takes to turn my mundane life in a London children's home upside down.
Power and magic lurk at the priory, my new home in the Oxfordshire countryside, and I learn fast that nothing is ordinary around here. Not my newfound family—the Penhaligons. Not my long-lost twin sister. And not the hostile new neighbours—a coven of vampires, vaewolves and demons.
As I grapple with family secrets, four powerful new brothers, and latent abilities of my own, my sister and the man who raised her find themselves in mortal danger—a danger that draws me and my family into a battle to save them.
Finally embracing the meaning of family, two questions burn at the back of my mind.
If vampires and demons exist, what are the Penhaligons?
And what am I?

If sibling banter, precious friendships, bitey neighbours, and terrible goats are your jam, settle in to meet your new ride or die crew today.
Due to adult language and dark themes, this book is recommended for readers aged 15+ and is ideal for upper YA/crossover readers who enjoy diverse stories. The series should be read in order.
