Penny Avalon’s daughter is curse-born. If something isn’t done soon, the fae will take her for their malevolent schemes. When a sketchy djinni offers a cure in exchange for a treacherous heist, Penny leaps at the chance. Yet when she recovers the charm, the price to turn it over may be too high to pay. What’s worth more: a cure for her daughter, or the freedom of enslaved djinnis? Will this desperate mother betray her own kind to save her daughter, or will she lose a chance for a cure forever?
