In the sequel to A Darker Magic, a grown-up Emily and her niece, Alice, return to Caledon to confront the dark forces of an evil magic.

Facing pressures at home and the expectations of her pregnant mom, Alice can’t accept a summer job staging a Punch-and-Judy show at the library fast enough.

As the show draws nearer, mysterious and frightening events take place and Alice’s strange Aunt Emily suspects that the truth might lie buried in the past. Will she and Alice be able to discover the dreadful secret that is sabotaging the puppet show in enough time to save themselves?
