A madman. A sex cult. And world-changing genetic magick.
VERITY STRANGE—Hedge Witch, Youngest Daughter of the Strange Family
Seeing the future isn't all it's cracked up to be—especially when you can't change it. Even more so when your Talent nearly kills you. I've searched the world for a guru—a magickal monk—who could help me tame my divination powers, but most were frauds or worse. Being young and female is precarious when you're consorting with powerful adepts. But then I met Eliphas Storm, and everything changed...
WYLDE BANE—FBI Analyst, Cult Expert
Eliphas Storm is like any other cult leader. Never mind that he's gathered millions of followers to his sex-magick-enhancing temples. Never mind that he's likely the madman behind these Talent-destroying drugs. He's all about the power to control people—people like the beautiful and naive Verity Strange—and I'm determined to take him down. I grew up in a cult, and I know just how much he could damage a woman like her. But going undercover with an uncooperative asset is a good way to get me killed. And stepping back into the world I left is dangerous in a whole different way...
Wylde is intent on bringing down a charismatic cult leader. Verity is bent on proving his innocence and seducing her way into his inner circle. Together, they have to stop whoever is making the Talent-destroying drugs threatening Chicago's magickal populace.
