About the Book
Racing against time, Jonah and Emma, who possess unique magical gifts, work to uncover the truth about Thorn Hill, a peaceful commune that the Wizard Guild claims is a hotbed of underguild terrorists.
From the Publisher
They called it the Thorn Hill Massacre-the brutal attack on a
once-thriving Weir community. Though Jonah Kinlock lived through
it, he did not emerge unscathed: like the other survivors Jonah
possesses unique magical gifts that set him apart from members of
the mainline guilds. At seventeen, Jonah has become the deadliest
assassin in Nightshade, a network that hunts the undead.
Emma Claire Greenwood grew up worlds away, raised by a grandfather
who taught her music rather than magic. An unschooled wild child,
she runs the streets until the night she finds her grandfather
dying, gripping a note warning Emma that she might be in danger.
The clue he leaves behind leads Emma into Jonah''s life-and a
shared legacy of secrets and lingering questions.
Was Thorn Hill really a peaceful commune? Or was it, as the Wizard
Guild claims, a hotbed of underguild terrorists? The Wizards''
suspicions grow when members of the mainline guilds start turning
up dead. They blame Nightshade, bringing tensions between the
groups to a head.
Racing against time, Jonah and Emma work to uncover the truth about
Thorn Hill, amid increasing concern that whoever planned the Thorn
Hill Massacre might strike again.
