To Ilaris, In Desperation
Astera is over. Mercury has his life and his powers but that doesn’t mean he’s safe.
Violence against witches continues. Anyone with magic must wear a dog tag identifying themself as a witch. Practicing magic in public is now illegal.
Then there’s Kinheld, a plot of land that the Witches’ Council plans to develop in its own image. While some witches feel Kinheld could be a safe haven, Mercury knows that this separate but equal treatment won’t benefit anyone.
So he takes his concerns to the streets, leading a handful of protests across L.A. But just as this movement gains national recognition, Mercury’s world is turned upside down after receiving a powerful threat.
As he struggles to do the right thing, Mercury learns a shocking truth that could change everything. Can he rise up and fight, or will the political machinations of witches and vampires alike stop the movement for good?
