On her first assignment as a demon-hunting witch, Alma was unable to kill. Now broke and unemployed at twenty-six, she lives in Silverpool, a remote town in a redwood forest north of San Francisco, where she sells magic-infused jewelry and tries to live a drama-free life.
When fairies draw her to the dead body of her ex-boyfriend, she must defend herself and the hidden power in Silverpool from an influx of supernatural trouble. The only way to make peace—and stay alive—is to find the killer.
Drawing upon years of formal magical training she’d rather forget, and using other abilities she’d like to keep secret, Alma goes up against bloodthirsty fae, a dangerously charming demon, her infamous father, and other ambitious witches with agendas of their own.
This time, an inability to kill might be not just the end of her job, but of her life…
Recovering from a recent supernatural attack, twentysomething witch Alma has sworn off violence to devote herself to the old ways of magic—without hurting anyone.
But soon she’s drawn out of her cozy bungalow in the redwoods to investigate a murder at a high-society house party on the California coast. She’s forced to summon old powers and new, make allies she might not be able to trust, and face a shocking truth about her own identity. And maybe—if she can survive long enough—unmask a killer.
Reluctant witch investigator Alma Bellrose has exorcised demons and unmasked killers. But now she has a far more terrifying challenge ahead — a witch wedding.
If she manages to survive the ceremony, she’ll have to track down a mysterious enemy who might not have a body of its own—before it leads to the destruction of her supernatural town, her friends, and herself.
Alma is a witch with an Incurable Inability to kill. That can be inconvenient in a world of demons, Shadow magic, and murder. Luckily, Alma has discovered she has unusual, remarkable talents of her own. And they’re getting stronger.
When her quiet town is inundated with witch tourists looking for demon thrills on the winter solstice, Alma is compelled to act. Using her gifts of fairy sight and shape-shifting, she helps Raynor, the new Protector, hunt down magical trouble.
But then a witch turns up dead—not at the hand of a demon, but a human being.
Soon after, there’s another body.
Can Alma find the murderer in the mayhem—or will she be the next victim?
