Rhea and Cynthia Evers live with their father, Arden, in a small town called Borough. Two years prior, their mother was killed in what appeared to be a robbery gone wrong. They are trying to put their lives back together and move on with their lives, but Cynthia the younger of the two sisters, is having trouble doing this; mainly because she does not like or trust the woman that has caught their father’s eye, a teacher at their school named Ruth Atkins. Despite their disagreements, Dad, Rhea, and Cynthia learn to live with one another’s differences and are well on their way to having a normal family relationship again.

Everything goes well until Rhea discovers a chest full of secrets hidden away in her parents’ closet. The chest makes her think back to the night her mother died and how strange Mom had acted. What she finds inside the chest makes her question everything she thought she knew about her mother. Why would her mother hide mysterious leather bound spell books, odd charms, and strange pouches full of unfamiliar objects and heady aromas? And then there is the ring that her mother gave her before she died. Did she know something terrible would happen to her? Rhea can think of only one person to give them the answers they need. If Grandma can’t help them, no one can.

From Grandma they learn of the secret their mother has hidden from them their entire lives. They belong to an ancient race called The Magi and are blessed with the powers of their foremother, Eve. Grandma teaches them how to use their powers and more importantly, they learn it was not robbers who killed their mother, but a rival coven that was once part of their Order. And to make matters worse, they are after the magical ring that Rhea inherited from her mother. This news enrages Cynthia who is determined to know the whole truth and find her mother’s killer, despite Grandma’s admonishments. The Order is working on a plan to bring their enemies to justice.  

Soon it is time for them to leave Grandma and return home to their father. But, they are not idle; Rhea and Cynthia have been developing a plan also. They’ve learned of a man from their past that might have the answers seek. Rhea, with her newly discovered power of telepathy coerces their father into taking them to the coastal city Waterside. When they reach Waterside, they find answers but they lose something much more precious… their father.

Their father is kidnapped by the same rogue group of magi responsible for their mother’s death. Somehow they’ve learned that Rhea now has the ring and want to negotiate a trade… their father for the ring. The sisters think all is lost until they join forces with an unlikely ally; an eighteen-year-old boy named Glenn St. Claire. Glenn isn’t a normal boy. He is the son of a vampire; vampires are the primary enemy of The Magi. Rhea is unsure if they should trust Glenn and thinks he might be a spy sent to lead them astray or harm them, but Cynthia, who harbors a little crush for Glenn, points out that they don’t have many options. Glenn is reluctant to get involved with magic, he is very much aware what can happen to his kind when they get on the wrong side of the wrong magus, but he also knows what it feels like to lose a parent and does not want the sisters to go through that pain again.

With Glenn’s help they rescue their father and flee Waterside with the rival coven in hot pursuit. Cynthia, along with Grandma, come up with a way to give their rivals what they want and hopefully tip the scales in their favor. However, the rival coven’s leader, Lafaye, has her own agenda and will not make things easy for them. Will Rhea, Cynthia, Glenn, and The Order of Eve prevail against Lafaye and her merciless clan?
