In their new Keeper roles, these extraordinary women must balance the fate of the world with their desires…. Alessande Salisbrooke has been warned about the legend of the old Hildegard Tomb—how human sacrifices are being carried out by the followers of a shape-shifting magician. As a Keeper, Alessande understands the risks of investigating, but she can't shake the nagging feeling that the killings are tied to a friend's recent murder, and she can't turn her back.

But as the bodies continue piling up, completely drained of blood, one truth becomes all too clear: life is an illusion, and no one—not even those you care about the most—is who they seem.
