The most dangerous magic must be destroyed

Genevieve Flannery's family inheritance is both an invaluable gift and an unspeakable curse: Genevieve is one of the heirs of the Avrakedavra, a trio of ancient texts capable of preserving everlasting life–or eroding it completely. Burdened with the power of untold magic and tormented by those who would seek to exploit it, Genevieve knows that the three Avrakedavra texts must be destroyed.

If only the road ahead were easy. Genevieve is grateful to have her fellow heir, the irresistible Henry, by her side, but when the father she never knew she had becomes their guide, all bets are off. Together, this new team must rely on unexpected allies as they embark on a harrowing global search to acquire the pieces necessary to destroy this ancient magic and complete the Undoing.

But loyalties among the magical community are fragile. Genevieve, grieving the loss of her mother, struggles to control her new Avrakedavra-bestowed gifts, and with mounting threats to her psyche and body, she clings mightily to the promise of a brighter future once this quest is over—if she can survive it. And Henry, broken by his father's treachery but entranced by the heartwarming connection his family's text has granted him, grapples with the fact that once they succeed in destroying the books, he'll lose the only family he has left.

Forced to question all that they hold dear, the young heirs must remember Genevieve's mother's greatest lesson: the key to good is found in truth.
