When Eliza Rose found out she was a witch, she thought she'd be casting spells... However, it turns out Eliza is on her way to becoming a mystical assassin. But first she has to start college with her best friend Dawn Roberts and her feline familiar Jared. If you think college is stressful, try finding your best friend being seduced-nearly to death-by a venomous fairy. Something is horribly wrong, and Eliza must find out what it is. Knowing who's who in the Mystical world can be a burden-or save her life... Murderous mermaids, seductive fairies, and manipulative elves are terrifying enough, but pure witches can become corrupt...and they're the most dangerous creatures of all. Eliza struggles to discover the source of this chaos, but is repeatedly attacked-and saved by a shadowy figure. On a very personal note, Eliza must learn whether corruption is beginning to claim her mother. Her strongest ally might be handsome, enigmatic Donovan-but he is hiding a shocking secret... Donovan wants nothing to do with his old gang-not after the things they'd made him do. But when he meets Eliza, he's both frustrated by her amateur skills and impressed by her emerging strength, and he feels compelled to help her grow into the assassin she's meant to be. Every answer has a price, and there are beings born to corrupt the pure. Eliza fights to master her skills before it's too late, while Donovan must determine whether Eliza can be saved...or if she must die to keep her out of the hands of those who would use her powers to reign over all of Mystical.
