Publisher's summary

Teodora di Sangro is used to hiding her magical ability to transform enemies into music boxes and mirrors. Nobody knows she’s a strega - and she aims to keep it that way.

The she meets Cielo - and everything changes.

A strega who can switch outward form as effortlessly as turning a page in a book, Cielo shows Teodora what her life could be like if she masters the power she’s been keeping secret. And not a moment too soon: The ruler of Vinalia has poisoned the patriarchs of the country’s five controlling families, including Teodora’s father, and demands that each family send a son to the palace.

If she wants to save her family, Teodora must travel to the capital - not disguised as a boy, but transformed into one. But the road to the capital, and to bridling her powers, is full of enemies and complications, including the one she least expects: falling in love.

Critic reviews

"A delicious and magical intrigue too tempting not to devour." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

"A highly original magic system and a protagonist who is as ruthless as she is fiery make for a fast-paced adventure." (School Library Journal, starred review)

“A unique mashup of fantasy, historical fiction, and queer romance...the kind of book you won't be able to stop talking about.” (Bustle)
