From back of book: Madeleine LeBlanc Discovered shocking family secrets she hoped she could escape. But the powers and madness that dominated her family for a century are not shaken easily.
Thrust into an age-old battle she knows little of, Madeleine must dive deep into the history of her family and the vast paranormal underworld of New Orleans, a world seemingly puppeteered by her great grandmother.
But an even greater battle is at play, one that has commanded good and evil since time began. And all Madeleine wants is some sense of normalcy, but she'll have to go through hell to see what that even means.
Following up from the events of her debut novel, A Twisted Ladder, Rhodi Hawk stakes her claim as a Southern Gothic and horror master to rank with Charlaine Harris.
