Isaac Vainio’s life is just about perfect. He should know it can’t last.
Living and working as a part-time librarian in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Isaac has finally earned the magical research position he has dreamed of with the Porters. He is seeing a smart, fun, gorgeous dryad named Lena Greenwood. He has been cleared by Johannes Gutenberg to practice libriomancy once again, reaching into books to create whatever he chooses from their pages. Best of all, it has been more than two months since anything tried to kill him.
And then Isaac, Lena, and Porter psychiatrist Nidhi Shah are called to the small mining town of Tamarack, Michigan, where werewolves have discovered the body of a brutally murdered wendigo.
What begins as a simple monster-slaying leads to deeper mysteries and the discovery of an organization thought to have been wiped out by Gutenberg more than five centuries ago. Their magic rips through Isaac’s with ease, and their next target is Lena Greenwood.
The Upper Peninsula is about to become ground zero in a magical war like nothing the world has seen in more than five hundred years.
