From “talented wordsmith” (Publishers Weekly) Lisa Maxwell comes a mysterious and intriguing new novel about a girl who must travel back in time to find a device that could save the future.
In modern day New York, magic is all but obsolete. Esta is a thief, and one of the few Innarus left in the city. They are all unable to leave because of The Brink—a barrier around the city that will strip them of magic if they cross it.
All hope appears to be lost…unless Esta takes a mission presented to her by her mentor, Doc Lawson. Doc believes that if he can send Esta into the past, she will be able to rewrite history, changing the future of Innatus, and the position of magic in modern day New York.
But playing with the past is never easy, and once Esta finds herself in early twentieth-century New York, run by gangs and secret magical societies, she’s not so sure that she’ll be able to pull off the heist…or that Doc told her everything she needed to know for the task.
