For centuries a Hobbs witch has held Death’s Gate, but for the first time in history, the next Gatekeeper has no magic.
Rikaria Hobbs is an overachieving realist who knows that her summer tradition of taking a couple months off from real life to spend them with her grandmother is on borrowed time. She decides this will be her last summer, but when she starts seeing spirits, hearing voices in her head, and is accosted by a demon, her plans turn to dust.
After confirmation from her grandmother, magic becomes her reality and her role as the next Gatekeeper looms over her future. Rika has a lot of catching up to do, but with the help of a stunning stranger, her grandmother, and the voice in her head that continues to grow stronger, Rika wades into the secrets connecting her family to the politicking opportunists around them.
Rika must decide if who she wants to be and who she needs to be can coexist. Family is everything, especially in this.
