Staff Reviews

Shall I paint you a picture of why this book is incredible? The prose? Unmatched. The mystery? Twisty and suspenseful. The romance? Literally makes me squeal with joy. The magic system? Unique and beautifully written. This is a great read for mystery and fantasy fans alike — especially if you like Stalking Jack the Ripper or Margaret Rogerson!

— Bridey


From the author of Sing Me Forgotten comes a lush new fantasy novel with an art-based magic system, romance, and murder...

Myra has a gift many would kidnap, blackmail, and worse to control: she's a portrait artist whose paintings alter people's bodies. Guarding that secret is the only way to keep her younger sister safe now that their parents are gone. But one frigid night, the governor's wife discovers the truth and threatens to expose Myra if she does not complete a special portrait that would resurrect the governor's dead son.

Once she arrives at the legendary stone mansion, however, it becomes clear the boy's death was no accident. A killer stalks these halls--one disturbingly obsessed with portrait magic. Desperate to get out of the manor as quickly as possible, Myra turns to the governor's older son for help completing the painting before the secret she spent her life concealing makes her the killer's next victim.
