Corinne begins to notice odd occurrences after that night. First she spots a beautiful stranger speaking to the town witch at the market. Then this same beauty, called Severine, turns up at Corinne’s house, cooking dinner for her father. Danger is in the air.

Corinne must call on her courage and her friends and ancient magic to stop Severine and to save her island home.
