The heist is on. Molly Sinclair is a pirate and a witch, and if there’s a chance at gold, she’s going to take it.
The isles are a magical world, bordered by ice but never cold. A world where everyone is born human or witch, and magic is the currency of choice. Spells are bought, packaged and sold by the powerful witches’ guild and Molly wants nothing to do with them.
Molly is a craftborn witch, more powerful than most, yet forced to hide her skills. She longs to be free: to sail her ship, protect her younger brother, and stay clear of scheming marketeers, the governor, an absent king and the guild.
But tension in the isles runs high. The years of plenty are fading and people are poor. Power is shifting, and freedom costs money.
When Molly steals a chest full of spells from the governor’s palace, his not-so-royal nephew steps in and a search begins.
Now, Molly needs to find out who is lying and who is telling the truth before the final battle destroys them all.
