Ten years ago, a man was imprisoned for crimes he didn't commit.
Five years ago, Jette decided to steal ancient magic and break him out.
One year ago, she discovered that the magic she stole was going to kill her...
Jette Driftwood, talented witch with synesthesia and the Bleak's most wanted, is hiding in plain sight among humans and working in an evidence room at her local police station. After two years on the run from the cohort of thieves she cheated, things are finally starting to settle down. She can finally get back to her plan: using the magic she stole from the Bleak to free a wrongly imprisoned man.
Then the killer shows up.
When a man is murdered in the town where she's hiding, Jette is the prime suspect when an annoyingly attractive and accomplished vampire shows up to collect the bounty on her head. To save her life, she'll make a deal: use her unique talents to help bring down a killer and maybe win a chance to avoid her execution.
But things aren't that simple, because the magic Jette stole is killing her faster than anticipated. She has unfinished business. She's fighting the clock, and her time is running out...
