Having a magical family secret would be exciting if your hidden gift controlled the elements or summoned dragons . . . not raised the dead.
The latest in a long line of powerful necromancers, Vexa is just trying to live a normal life without starting a zombie apocalypse. But after twenty-seven years of suppressing her powers, Vexa's secret catches up to her in the form of a strange candle, a relic of the days when her ancestors had complete power over life and death, and in a gorgeous man with a terrible curse–Ethan.
As Vexa's life is thrown into chaos, Ethan is the only one who can help her control the candle and introduce her to a paranormal world she never knew existed. But a sinister ancestor and a captivating enemy have other plans for her.
She may finally have found a community where she can be herself . . . if the dark forces pursuing the candle don't destroy her first.
