A Powerful Prohibition
To the Stars
Circumstances tore them apart. A murder will bring them back together.
Socialite Cecily Dearborn, a natural magic user with the ability to manipulate electricity, comes from a world where that magic is forbidden. Studying abroad was supposed to help her master - and suppress - her power, but when her efforts fail, she is forced home in disgrace.
Self-proclaimed street rat Daniel Sullivan, Cecily’s estranged childhood friend and now an operative working to protect magical practitioners, is tasked with monitoring her activities upon her return. But when she’s framed for murder, Daniel is compelled to drop the mission and take Cecily on the run. Together, they flee to his team’s base of operations, a magical speakeasy known as a "charm school," where they begin to unravel the truth of the crime and discover a web of dangerous secrets.
As Cecily learns more about her magic and herself, she and Daniel grow closer, but the race is on to clear her name before disaster strikes again. Will their new connection be enough to see them through?
