Eleanora Hope not only reads the obits with too much enthusiasm, but is only a half step away from being classified as a crazy cat lady at twenty-one.
She was a full-blown Sage following the death of her grandmother shortly after high school, and with no plans to go to college, Ella discovers not only is there a fine line between homebody and hermit, but it’s one she’s not afraid to tread.
But life goes sideways when two Heavenly dropouts arrive unexpectedly in her graveyard. Ella’s not sure what to do with them, much less how to handle when Abigail Leonore and the Sage Council show up at her door wanting a piece of the action – and her power. But there’s something not quite right about Abigail, and Ella’s buried childhood – and her parents’ murders – comes back with a vengeance.
Between assassination attempts, and a burgeoning romance she has absolutely no idea how to handle, Ella’s cottage and graveyard become the proverbial war zone, and she stands to lose everything to murder, magic, and greed.
