But when her powers finally awaken, her Deathday celebration will happen whether she wants it to or not. Alex must take matters into her own hands to stop it, but when she does, she mistakenly banishes her family to Los Lagos, an underworld of magic where souls are kept, and makes her presence known to the Devourer, a monster that wants to take the magic of all witches.
Alex must enter Los Lagos and get her family back before the Devourer can consume her family’s powers, killing them all, and make her way into the real world. Will Alex be able to accept herself and her powers to overcome the Devourer or will she give up her magic once and for all?
