Everyone blames Mr. Lockwell's malady on his magickal studies, but Ivy alone still believes--both in magic and in its power to bring her father back. But thereareothers in the world who believe in magick as well. Over the years, Ivy has glimpsed them--the strangers in black topcoats and hats who appear at the door, strangers of whom their mother will never speak. Ivy once thought them secret benefactors, but now she's not so certain. After tragedy strikes, Ivy takes a job with the reclusive Mr. Quent in a desperate effort to preserve her family.

And in the act of saving her father, Ivy will determine whether the world faces a new dawn--or an everlasting night. . . . From the Hardcover edition.
