Journalist Emily Winters is summoned by a mysterious phone call to an isolated church on the outskirts of Sydney, only to find herself caught up in a story she could never print in a newspaper. The stranger, Jehail, tells her of a supernatural conspiracy involving her family, which puts her in a position of great power and great danger. Emily seeks out the various clues to her family s true calling opposing a sacred order of elemental magicians who seek her family s inherent power. With the cabal closing in on her family, Emily must come to terms with her magical inheritance, and decide if she is prepared to give up love and the life she knows to champion her family s destiny. The outcome will be known when she and her allies storm the cabal s headquarters on a night of magic and blood.
