Lacy believes that magic and science can work side by side. She is a skilled botanist that can harness the power of plants. When her father dies, she tries to stay with her step-mother that believes in good and healing magic. But she always feel the pull of her persuasive and powerful mother who brings out the darkness in her, stripping everything light and kind. Her mother forces Lacy to accompany her to Sacramento, and it is not long before the old darkness resurfaces.

This book is definitely not for everyone. I was very confused and a little disgusted by the plot overall. It didn't have much hold on me, but I'm sure others will definitely enjoy it. If you do not fancy harsh main characters or if you're put off by characters who have really dark thoughts, then best stay away.

People who like dark and fascinating stories will like this book.
