Hunter and Mercy Goode are more than just twins celebrating their sixteenth birthday. They’re also witches that have a special heritage as Gatekeepers with the important job of guarding the entrances to various underworlds. They thought the worst of their problems would be the growing pains of being witches and dealing with former bullies, first loves, and each other. Murders soon rock their small town and the sisters face their greatest loss when their mother dies. The twins will do anything to bring their mother’s killer to justice while fighting against ancient monsters that invade the town. Hunter and Mercy face their new responsibilities and embrace their destiny which could put their bond at risk.
