Adrienne Morales is a hunted woman.

Stalked by Voids—people immune to magic—and pursued by a deadly past, Adrienne wants nothing more than to avoid spells and sorcery. Her powers as an enchantress make that impossible. Every few days she must release the magic gathering around her, or it’ll steal her sanity. The only way to stay alive is to practice her magic in secret, hiding enchantments in works of art she sells in her craft store.

When a firebreathing psychopath controlled by enchantment tries to burn down her store, Adrienne unleashes her powers to stop him. Unfortunately her battle has a witness—Adrienne’s handsome business partner. Turns out he’s a Void, and sworn to a Union that executes rogue magic users. Worse, the firebreather isn’t the only victim to pop up around San Francisco. Someone is using magic to create monsters and destroy minds, and the Void Union wants them dead.

Now Adrienne must capture the rogue enchanter before they ruin more innocent lives—and before the Voids punish her for the rogue’s crimes. But Voids aren’t the worst thing chasing her. Every enchantment she crafts makes it more likely her past will track her down. And if it does, madness will be the kindest fate awaiting her.

EXCERPT:
In this excerpt, we see our heroine Adrienne at the end of a battle, after using up an oppressive amount of magic to defend herself. Unfortunately, she broke a few laws in the process:

The magic finished flowing. The entire storm of power dispersed at once. My skull lightened, freed from the burden that had threatened to crush me. The dog monster stood still, seemingly relaxed, and for a moment I felt relief that my makeshift enchantment hadn’t hurt it, had in fact helped calm it down. Then I realized why it wasn’t moving. Its eyes roamed wildly, and tiny, panicked breaths puffed its chest in and out.

I’d done more than calm it. I’d paralyzed it.

Feeling sick, I retrieved my fallen necklace, deactivating its enchantment so the silver chain went limp. I looked back up the road. Desmond was wading out of the grass, his sword slick with blood. Kendall had reached the car, and was now climbing out of the backseat in her clothes once more.

There was no way to hide what I’d done. Desmond would see it. I stared at the new tattoo line on the frozen dog-thing’s hump. My gaze traced it to the network of other tattoos winding from the creature’s temples, down his chest and along his legs.

I’d enchanted a human. Whether he was under previous enchantments or not, that was a crime. And as a member of the Void Union, Desmond was supposed to kill me.
