About the Book
Max is perfectly happy. A health inspector by day, a warlock on the weekends. But then, his wife dies, after Max enlists a team of magical specialists that should have prevented her demise. His dreams turn into nightmares, his wife's soul trapped.

And Max, out of touch with his own magical world, finds help in the unlikeliest of places...a New Witch with remarkable powers, hidden for 50 years, who comes with a mystery all her own. They join forces to uncover not only his wife's untimely death but also the New Witch's secret and terrifying past.


"Harry Potter for grown ups. Harry Potter with sex. I was most impressed with the author's ability to concretise magical places and spells - lots of vivid sensory details for a wild number of magical abilities and worlds. I loved the Island of the Dragons' graves. And there was lots of food, which I always enjoy. I would have married Max for his cooking alone. I also think the author did a good job of taking his grief seriously, something fantasy novels don't always accomplish or even bother to try. So the book was fun, but serious. Serious fun."
