In a world where a powerful spell is the only measure protecting witches against the 21st century stake burnings, 16-year-old Kelsey can't resist arguing with her mother, leader of the witch burners, over the good of magic.
When Kelsey discovers her own magic, she joins a bunker for protection and training, and vows to show her mother that not all witches are an abomination. However, the fight between good and evil isn't as black and white as Kelsey had hoped, with evil sparing lives and good sacrificing them in a misguided attempt to keep magic alive.
Kelsey finds an alternative plan: to rip magic from the world. It's drastic, it's unforgivable, but it might be the only thing that can save witches from themselves. However, destroying magic will break the spell protecting witches from the witch burners. For once in her life, Kelsey will need to reason-not argue-with her mother that witches can be good people too, or else the stake-burnings will commence.
