A tormented past, a demon, and a death foretold.
Evie no longer a slave, is haunted by her past. Her saviour Hesta Bethwood, who granted her freedom, wants to embark on a joint venture to set up an academy for the gifted.
During a demonstration of mesmerism, they witness a demon possession. The demon aware of their presence, seeks them out. When Evie and Hesta seek advice from a wise witch, a death is foretold. Together they must face the demon; failure will mean loss of freewill that Evie holds so dear.
Can they both survive the demon encounter, or will the foretold death prevail.
This Gaslamp fantasy adventure novel is the second in the Evie Chester series.
