England 1632. 25 years have passed since the first fateful production of Macbeth, and the forces of evil are about to be re-awoken.
A cursed child…
Six-fingered Mary Sparrow believes she was cursed at birth, and the bawdy house at the Cardinal’s Cap is the only home she’s ever known. Like most of the girls, she dreams of escape, but when an old man mysteriously drives her friend to madness, Mary begins to fear for her life.
A dangerous path…
Toby Chyrche also hopes for a better future, away from the confines of the tailor’s shop where it seems his fate is set in stone. So when a chance meeting with an old man at the brothel offers him a different path, he is only too eager to accept. Then the discovery of an old book of magic throws a new and shocking light onto the past – his mother had a brother, and that brother was a witch.
A price to pay…
As the old man’s shadow over Bankside lengthens, Mary is drawn into the growing web of darkness. Unable to escape its reach, she turns to Toby for help. But Toby has daemons of his own to face. Will possession of the book be enough to protect them? And what price will they have to pay?
In this compelling and seductive sequel to Shakespeare’s Witch, nothing is as it seems…
