Taina Aponte, the sole survivor of an arson fire that killed her family, was taken to safety in Puerto Rico by her grandmother to escape the wholesale destruction of The Bronx. Thirty years later Taina, now a witch and still haunted by her memories, is back in the hood.
Taina’s search for the murderers uncovers a vast werewolf/dhampir conspiracy—and an alliance of fae to aid in her quest for justice. She enters into an uneasy alliance with Arnaldo Arroyo, a reformed addict turned community activist. The truths she uncovers shake her faith in everything and everyone she ever knew. Will she accept the mandate of the orishas to restore the balance between good and evil and take back the neighborhood?
