An edge-of-your-seat fantasy adventure about friendship, sacrifice and the true meaning of magic, from the twice Costa-shortlisted author of The Midnight Guardians.

"A hugely talented and accomplished storyteller." Sophie Anderson

Evie is used to not being noticed. But when she meets the mysterious Wainwright, she discovers that going unnoticed might just be what makes her unique. Recruited into a secret magical organization, Evie finds herself at the heart of an ancient and magical battle. Evil is returning to the land, and Evie is the only person who can stop it. But how can she defeat the most dangerous magician in the world, when she doesn't even know her own powers?
