A drug made of living souls. Is immortality worth the cost?
A black market in souls; their essence, known secretly as Bijou, bestows the illusion of youth to those who can afford it. Annie Novak and her family have long sought to protect the dying and the newly dead from soul-theft, but a new and unimaginable threat has appeared; someone is stealing souls from those who are not yet dead, and the distilled infusion of Bijou Xtra provides long, long life.
Using a peculiar camera she found, Maxine Nutbeam photographs her cousin’s life-sized horse sculpture and it comes to life. Coming from a long line of Nutbeams possessing erratic, careless magical abilities, Maxine encounters the camera’s owner Dante, whose supernatural skills as a Time Mage surpass even Maxine’s vivid imaginings. Rushed headlong into sorcery, danger and chaos, Maxine uncovers her mother’s secret and the mystery of her own birth. She is having the time of her life, but time is running out.
