Book 2 in The Malice Compendium series by New York Times bestselling author Megan Shepherd, featuring dark magic and family secrets with a contemporary horror tone.
Now both hunter and prey, Haven Marbury travels far and wide to discover the contours of her family curse and escape the worst of her late father’s creations. Constantly looking over her shoulder, she fears Uncle Arnold the most. His irresistible whispers compel victims to commit horrifying deeds, and he’s hungry to use Haven’s abilities to rewrite the world to his liking.
Drawn to the desert scrublands and Hollywood mansions of California, Haven’s search lines up with a string of murders that point directly to members of her family. Given shelter by a mysterious benefactor, Haven and her sister forge questionable allegiances, using some otherworldly creatures to hunt down others, but when the trail of death ends at a studio from the Golden Age of horror films, reality and fiction have never been stranger bedfellows.
