Courtney Crumrin has learned a lot about magic after moving in with her great uncle Aloysius, and her education is far from over. Enter the Coven of Mystics, Hillsborough's mystical council, who ensure witches and wizards don't abuse their powers. Though sometimes things fall out of their jurisdiction... and when a night creature is blamed for crimes against the community, they'll do everything in their power to see justice done. Only one problem-the creature is innocent. But can Courtney find the real culprit before the Coven intervenes?
