‘New York would bring with it a whole new world of possibilities and trouble.’ Soon to begin her freshman year, Nkechi, a young voodoo witch, is unsure what to expect. Alone in New York, and still coming to terms with the death of her mother, Nkechi worries that she will struggle to keep her magic hidden, and is afraid that her mortal classmates will reject her quirky personality. Fortunately, Columbia College is a big place, and she soon finds her people in the form of Charlie, a mortal, and Kosum, a fellow witch, who quickly introduces Nkechi to the local coven.
But all is not as it seems, and with her life finally going in the right direction, the last thing she expects is for a mysterious girl infused with magic to implode right in front of her. Determined to discover who is behind these magical occurrences, Nkechi embarks on a journey that forces her to confront her past, re-evaluate her present and embrace her future.
