There are the witches of the Quarter, and then there is the unwanted magical bloodline. The family so secret, even its youngest members are unaware. That would be mine.
"Magick runs in your bloodstream."
Grandma always told us we came from a powerful bloodline. A bloodline derived from one of the strongest witches in New Orleans past.
Mom disagrees. Had us believing it was nothing but lies.
Wanting to get us away from grandma and her fanciful ideas, Mom moves us in with her boyfriend. Sticks us in the French Quarter. A place where my family isn't welcome.
My new status quo: life in shambles.
Everything is changing. Mom is always working to pay the new, higher bills, my sister is experimenting with magick, and my brother, I think, maybe drugs. Forced to start at a new school and attempt to make new friends, I'm now having nightmares, seeing ghosts, getting teased as a witch, and preyed on by vampires. Plus, there's the creepy, stalker ancestor in my head.
But to all my crazy, there's a silver lining. I'm seeing a new, amazing guy, named Phillip... if Mom's overbearing boyfriend doesn't chase him away. Phillip doesn't know about the supernatural world crashing in around me and I'd like to keep it that way. He is the calm to my chaos.
And my mom's boyfriend, just may be the triggering cause of my surrounding storm.
How do I straighten out my family and uncover my own personal truth, when the devil in the works might possibly be sleeping under the same roof?
This fast-paced, action-packed, young adult, paranormal coming-of-age adventure, about a New Orleans, magickal bloodline family is ideal for fans of The Bane Chronicles and The Originals.

From the beginning I couldn’t put it down. Miri and her family fascinated me. The descriptions surrounding them made me feel like I was back in the city, walking those same streets, enjoying the food and hearing the music. Miri never wanted to believe her grandma; her brother & sister seem to have embraced the magic without even telling her. Their mother seems irresponsible and her boyfriend, we’ll don’t get me started on that evil guy!! But then there’s Phillip...he’s adorable and clearly wants to be near Miri. She needs him around to help her through all the changes.
I can’t wait to read the next installment. I know there’s going to be more exciting adventures with Miri’s family!! And the way the author describes the city, makes you feel like you’re home.
Love this Magical Read
Wow wow wow I was so incredibly lucky to get an ARC of this book and it blew me away. I’m so hooked on Miri and her family. This story flowed well and didn’t have lag, it was intense and I found myself hating when I had to pull away and life because I was so drawn into New Orleans. The story had me guessing what things were or why they were happening. I can’t wait to dive into this family deeper and see where it all settles.
