Publisher's Summary

The spellbinding tale of six queer witches forging their own paths, shrouded in the mist, magic, and secrets of the ancient California redwoods.

Danny didn’t know what she was looking for when she and her mother spread out a map of the United States and Danny put her finger down on Tempest, California. What she finds are the Grays: a group of friends who throw around terms like queer and witch like they’re ordinary and everyday, though they feel like an earthquake to Danny. 

But Danny didn’t just find the Grays. They cast a spell that calls her halfway across the country, because she has something they need: She can bring back Imogen, the most powerful of the Grays, missing since the summer night she wandered into the woods alone. But before Danny can find Imogen, she finds a dead boy with a redwood branch through his heart. Something is very wrong amid the trees and fog of the Lost Coast, and whatever it is, it can kill. 

Lush, eerie, and imaginative, Amy Rose Capetta’s tale overflows with the perils and power of discovery - and what it means to find your home, yourself, and your way forward.

Curl up w/ a delightfully witchy, queer YA story

This witchy, queer, multi-racial teen story is a lovely YA mystery. It has equal parts love, light & sexiness all overlaid on a juicily creepy plot. Perfect for curling up with in a cabin, on a stormy night in the woods!

Thematically weak story with unlikable characters.

I was looking forward to the book and while I love the performance, I can't say the same for the actual story. There was too much telling and not enough showing. The author spends too much time saying this character was magnetic and likeable without showing you why they are. Characters who are unlikable aren't even complicated. The characters don't have much depth other than ticking off boxes. The only interesting character turns out to be the antagonist and they get a very unsatisfying end. The book leaves so many questions at the end. Not in a way that makes me want a second book, but in a way that's a copout to avoid the consequences of their actions that would have added thematic weight.
