Bullied, different and lonely, Esme has no idea how much her life will change on Halloween, when two mysterious strangers come to town.
A boy with no hope, spiraling into Darkness …
Only one knows the truth, and only one has the power to save them.
Autumn doesn’t know why she remembers a boarding school she’s never visited, or why her reflection is sometimes that of a ghost named Summer. She struggles to recover her memories and understand the warnings conveyed through her magick. Caught between the Turner twins, she isn’t certain who to trust: Decker, the mysterious Master of Dark, who makes her heart catch, or Beck, the cautious Master of Light, whose touch soothes her pain.
Unable to recover from Summer’s death, Decker slowly surrenders to the Dark. The guilt he feels when he falls for Autumn – and betrays Summer’s memory – drives him farther from the Light, until he completely loses control and takes the souls of Light witchlings.As the protector of Light, Beck is caught between his allegiance to his twin and his vow to protect new witchlings. He must keep the Darkness from consuming his brother, for if Decker fails, he’ll take down the only person who has a chance of saving them all.
A race to save the Light from permanent Darkness …
A Dark threat unites with an ancient evil …
If the Master of Light, Beck, has learned anything over the past few months, it’s never to trust a pretty girl – or his own judgment, the source of several messes he’s working hard to right. He saved his brother and girlfriend from Darkness but faults himself for not protecting them in the first place, like he’s sworn to. The Light is receding again, and his earth magick warns him that an ancient danger has re-emerged in the hands of a beautiful, conflicted girl who’s caught between Light and Dark. Drawn to her beauty and gentle heart, Beck is astonished to learn her magick will do more than set his blood on fire. Like his twin, the Master of Dark, Beck has a counterbalance, a woman who can help him protect the Light – if she doesn’t fall to the Dark like the fire witchlings before her.
