Book 14: Ghost Stories

Chatoyant College reopens in the fall with a very changed landscape. Faeries all over now disdain to hide themselves with glamours. The students who remain are the brave, the desperate, and the knowing. The professors do their best to arm them with the knowledge they need, but sometimes their best isn’t good enough. Corrie, Edie, and Dawn think they know what to expect from their supernatural school, but even they are not always prepared for what happens when Roe’s visions come to light.

This time, it’s Annie who is most affected as something disturbs her sleep, waking her at all hours of the night and exhausting her. At the same time, she must reckon with seeing the last person she would ever expect—or want—to see at the front of her magic classroom… as well as seeking the courage to open her heart.

Her friends want to rescue her, as they did once before, but some traps are not made to be escaped.
