Adelia Hemstock’s tenure as Keeper cannot end fast enough. She’s been looking over her shoulder since day one and she’s sure she recognizes a few faces in the crowd now. When the book is taken from the safest place she knows, Adelia comes face to face with a new reality, and her Custos.
Rourke Templest has secretly guarded the book, and Adelia, for more than half of her lifetime. In the wrong place at the wrong time, the book is taken on his watch and he must emerge from the shadows to reclaim it, or get Adelia to New Orleans and secured. If White Diamond has the book, they absolutely cannot have the only person currently able to read it.
The feisty Keeper Rourke has only known from a distance until now, is a complication to the job that must be done. With only forty-eight hours to act, Adelia’s world turns upside down as they race to recover the book leaving a trail of murder, conspiracy, cover up, and chaos in their wake.
Can they recover it in time? Not even the Keeper knows.
