Magic... and murder? Reclusive witch Hulda van Dusen has spent the last five years hiding at home with her beloved Grandpapa, but suddenly he’s gone, and the circumstances don't add up. A series of monstrous, magical attacks makes it clear: someone wants her dead too. But Hulda's a fighter, and has magic of her own—as do her genius brother and pyromaniac sister. And putting the puzzle together with the help of some new friends might just teach her how to live again—if it doesn't kill her first.
