Living in 1980’s New York City, a troubled 16-years-old witch named Emerald Kipp has never been good at anything but being bad. On her last day of school, something extraordinary happens, which may just change the entire magical world. Three hundred years earlier, a gruesome new form of black magic is spreading across New Amesterdam, and teenaged witch Margo Pennyfeather might be the only one who can stop it. What can two teenaged witches, 300 years apart, have in common? More than you think. A prequel to the upcoming novel Emerald Kipp & The Riddle of the Timekeeper.
