Love burns. Worlds collide. Magic reigns.
world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies
keep her from enjoying many of the experiences that other teenagers take
for granted...which is why she is determined to enjoy her first (and
perhaps only) high-school party. But Lily's life never goes according to
plan, and after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating
class Lily wishes she could just disappear.
Suddenly Lily is in a
different Salem - one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by
powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruellest of all the
Crucibles is Lillian . . . Lily's identical other self in this alternate
universe. This new version of her world is terrifyingly sensual, and
Lily is soon overwhelmed by new experiences.
Lily realizes that
what makes her weak at home is exactly what makes her extraordinary in
New Salem. It also puts her life in danger. Thrown into a world she
doesn't understand, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can't hope
to shoulder alone, and a love she never expected.
But how can Lily be the saviour of this world when she is literally her own worst enemy?
