Tormented by the fate she condemned her mother to, and by the lies she’s forced to tell to cover it up, Adele scours Storm-ravaged New Orleans for the truth about her family’s magical past. But every turn leads her back to the one person she's determined to forget: Niccolò Medici. Not even the multitude of enchanted locks on the attic door trapping Nicco within can break their connection.
Sensing Nicco calling to Adele, Isaac tries relentlessly to keep her from exploring paths too dark that would endanger them all. But a new threat is rising: the Medici’s presence has attracted something else to New Orleans…an older enemy, one that will bring Isaac’s haunted past to life, test the witches’ friendships, and jeopardize Adele and Isaac’s blossoming relationship.
In this spellbinding continuation of The Casquette Girls saga, Adele must draw on the past—from seventeenth-century Florence, a time bubbling with alchemy and fraternal betrayal—and sort history from fantasy if she is to have any chance of saving her mother, her coven, and her magic.
Alys Arden was raised by the street performers, tea-leaf readers, and glittering drag queens of the New Orleans French Quarter. She cut her teeth on the streets of New York and has worked all around the world since. She still dreams of running away with the circus one star-swept night.

This was a great conclusion to this series. Its been a while since I read book one so I had to look up what it was about as I didn't remember. And I just didn't have the time to reread book one. This one was really good. I only gave book one 3 stars and I'm happy to report that this one was a solid 4 stars. In this sequel and finish of this series Adele is the same as ways, charming, creative, and a believable character. She interacts with all the other characters flawlessly and I really enjoyed reading about her story. This story will fold you within its pages as were shown both the present and the past. Make sure you read book one as this is not something you can read out of order. The story had a great pace and I couldn't put down. But if I needed to I could. The story was alive with character and I really hope to see more of these characters in maybe another book or a spin-off (fingers crossed).
The setting, characters, and story come together to blend flawlessly in this sequel and ending to this imaginative duology.
