Summary

In 19th century Denmark, an orphan girl uses her magical powers to get a job with a wealthy family in order to investigate the truth about her father, who died while working for the same family.


Marit doesn't like to use magic too often; it always comes with a heavy price. When her best friend Eve is adopted by a legendary former dancer and placed in an elite ballet program outside of Copenhagen, Marit draws upon her powers to secure a job with the wealthy family so that she can watch over her. But Marit has another, secret motivation: her father died while working for the dancer's family, and she has reason to believe he was murdered.

While Marit adapts to her glittering new life in Copenhagen, she starts to investigate her father's death in earnest. With every step she takes to get closer to the truth, she and everyone she loves is put in greater danger.

Soon Marit finds herself at the centre of a power struggle that goes all the way up to the king, and magic may be the only thing that can save her - if it doesn't kill her first.

NOTE : There is some violence and menace in the story, and some of the main characters are adults, so although accessible to a wide age range you may wish to use with younger teenagers with caution
