Young Adult Fantasy
From Unhooked author Lisa Maxwell comes a captivating new
world filled with magic and deception, about a girl who
must travel back in time to find a mysterious book that
could save her future.
Stop the Magician.
Steal the book.
Save the future.
In modern day New York, magic is all but extinct. The
remaining few who have an affinity for magic—the Mageus—
live in the shadows, hiding who they are. Any Mageus who
enters Manhattan becomes trapped by the Brink, a dark
energy barrier that confines them to the island. Crossing
it means losing their power—and often their lives.
Esta is a talented thief, and she's been raised to steal
magical artifacts from the sinister Order that created
the Brink. With her innate ability to manipulate time,
Esta can pilfer from the past, collecting these artifacts
before the Order even realizes she’s there. And all of
Esta’s training has been for one final job: traveling
back to 1902 to steal an ancient book containing the
secrets of the Order—and the Brink—before the Magician
can destroy it and doom the Mageus to a hopeless future.
But Old New York is a dangerous world ruled by ruthless
gangs and secret societies, a world where the very air
crackles with magic. Nothing is as it seems, including
the Magician himself. And for Esta to save her future,
she may have to betray everyone in the past.
