Frances Hallowell feels as if luck has abandoned her at every turn. First, it’s the mysterious death of her brother, then she finds herself on the cusp of a dark situation when her boss forces himself upon her. Then, in the very next moment, he collapses in a pool of his own blood with a pair of sewing scissors plunged in his neck. The thing is, Frances wasn’t the one who put them there. Strangely enough, this is the very moment Frances’ life takes a turn, opening the door to a new life she never expected… What is disguised as a sanitarium, Frances quickly learns, is actually an academy for witches, and Frances’ life will never be the same. Now, thrown amid a struggle for magical power, Frances must quickly decipher her newfound magic, the sacred bonds of sisterhood, a budding romance, and the answers behind her brother’s death in order to decide what truly matters most.
