In the kingdom-continent of Karvoth, the Touched -- those who wield mysterious supernatural abilities -- have endured centuries of discrimination. Marithyda Skyelorn, Karvoth's most notorious witch, has hidden from the vile King for years after narrowly escaping her blood-stained past and the Royal Exhibition, a corrupt carnival where the powers of the Touched are exploited for the enjoyment of nobles. But just when Marithyda starts to believe that the Exposition and its tragedies are far behind her, the past is quick to resurface. Enter Paolin Maxx, former performer and current gamewarden for the King. He claims to have a plot to assassinate King Harlan for his crimes against the Touched -- but needs Marithyda's help.
From the author of the Unplugged trilogy, Shadow Witch is a sweeping tale of hidden identities, betrayal, magic, and romance that you'll never want to put down.
