Sometimes actions can be more poisonous than any fruit, especially when dark magick is involved…
Arabella Cuthbert lives in a magickal world where females aren’t valued. Her future includes a husband, children, and endless days tending house unless Arabella can prevent it.
When the young Spelltwister stumbles across a name in an ancient tome, it leads her to the crotchety proprietress of White’s Antiquities and her malus malum. Esther White reveals a way for Arabella to have everything she’s ever wanted—fill the bad apple with the souls of seven evil men.
The task makes Arabella question everything she’s worked for, but has she bitten off more than she can chew from the rotten apple? Is it too late to change things again?

Arabella Cuthbert had many reasons to be bitter with life in general. For starters, she was born female in a time when women weren't appreciated. She was also happened to be a Spelltwister in a town where only males were allowed to be licensed and practice their skills. Most importantly, though, was her mother. Eleanora did nothing to help her children. The woman only thought of herself.
You see, Eleanora Alderdice Cuthbert, our esteemed mother, was a Sage capable of perceiving all types of magick, but she possessed no power of her own. She wrongfully thought that by harnessing herself to men with capabilities that she would produce the right children—Celestine males. Instead, she gave birth to Fractals—offspring with only a fifty percent chance at magick. Fractals were unpredictable. Even the Abra Guild suggested that marriages between magickals and non-magickals be avoided at all costs to prevent their birth. Any unfortunate children born to the couple were supposed to be tossed into the Void—a wasteland for those who practiced without permission.
