"This book is unapologetically Black, magical, and Queer. With necromancy, burlesque dancing, high fashion, and murder, you're not going to want to put this book down." C. M. Lockhart, Author of We Are the Origin
Zora is a necromancer. Some say she's gifted, others say she's cursed, but her abilities always terrify her. Hoping to start a new life, she flees her childhood home and travels to Savannah, but she soon learns that some things can't be changed.
There, she meets an alluring and powerful witch named Birdie. She offers Zora a proposition: she'll give Zora a place to stay, a job dancing at a magical burlesque club called Nightingale's, and help controlling her powers if Zora can solve her lover's murder.
Zora accepts Birdie's offer and is soon drawn into the magical community of Savannah, where rituals and magical fights are performed in grand old homes, potions can make people float on air, and three magical houses vie for dominance. As she tries to put the pieces together and solve the murder, Zora gets caught in the sight of the very forces responsible for the killing.
Can she rise up and learn to control her powers and solve the murder or will her fears cause her to lose it all?
