The magic of Saskia Maarleveld's narration grounds this debut novel featuring the Kalotay half sisters, Joanna and Esther. Joanna is guardian of a vast and hidden collection of magical spell books, written by Scribes in their own blood. Esther's works to keep Joanna and the collection safe. But someone desperately wants the magical library and will do anything to find and keep it. Maarleveld captures the sisters' determination to carry out their missions. But when Esther is summoned home from Antarctica, long held secrets will come out, and the truth of whom they can trust will become clear. Maarleveld seamlessly portrays the inner turbulence of each character and keeps the suspense taut with her insightful interpretation. L.M.G. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
