On the heels of her starred Publisher s Weekly debut, The Curse of Jacob Tracy, Messinger delivers another remarkably original novel where she deftly recreates the tumultuous post-Civil war era and clashes the natural with the supernatural.
When Jacob Tracy Civil War veteran, ex-seminarian, and reluctant psychic agrees to move into Miss Fairweather s St. Louis mansion and study magic with her, he has one purpose in mind: to hunt down and destroy the necromancer Mereck, a predatory madman who has twice tried to make a meal of Trace and trapped Trace s partner Boz in a monstrous half-life.
Sabine Fairweather has her own grievance with Mereck, though Trace doesn t know the details and doesn t particularly want to. The woman may be a brilliant scientist and a powerful witch in her own right, but there is darkness in her and bitter secrets that threaten the tenuous faith Trace has in her.
With Mereck s minions circling ever closer, and old allies posing unexpected threats, Trace knows he and Sabine have no choice but to trust each other. But for that to happen, he will have to lay bare all the deepest secrets of her soul and quite possibly her heart."
