In 1814, three cousins-Gretchen, Emma, and Penelope-discover their secret family lineage of witchcraft when a binding spell is broken, allowing their individual magical powers to manifest. Now, beyond the manicured gardens and ballrooms of Regency London, an alluring underworld available only to those with power is revealed to the cousins. By claiming their power, the three cousins have accidentally opened the gates to the underworld. Now ghouls, hellhounds-and most terrifying of all, the spirits of dark witches known as the Greymalkin Sisters-are hunting and killing young debutante witches for their powers. And, somehow, Emma is connected to the murders...because she keeps finding the bodies. Can the cousins seal the gates before another witch is killed...or even worse, before their new gifts are stripped away?

"Booklist" Plenty of angst, relationship drama, and betrayal to pull readers in . . . recommend this title to "Drake Chronicles "fans and readers who are looking for a new series that offers action, vampires, and witty but dark characters. "VOYA on Blood Moon" "Bleeding Hearts" surpassed all my expectations, and gave a completely unsuspected ending. The romance was enticing, the action full throttled fun. Another read that should not be missed. "Passing the Pages on Bleeding Hearts" An action-packed story full of intrigue, suspense, and romance with a great cast of characters. . . A satisfying read in a series that is sure to have a strong following. "School Library Journal on Blood Feud" A well-paced, clever and scary supernatural-suspense story.
