This is the prequel to the series and is another Regency period romance with a twist of magic. Sophie is preparing for her season, but is struggling without her mother and the damage to her let from an illness that has left her with a limp. The illness has also impacted her magical abilities. Her aunts, who are sponsoring her Season, are not much help, with Molly being obsessed with horticulture and Isabel being difficult to deal with and old-fashioned. Thankfully, the widow of her father’s friend, a French woman named Amelie, comes to her rescue with fashion help and she becomes friends with another young lady named Parthenope. At her first ball, she is surprised by the attention of Lord Woodbridge, but she suspects that he merely pities her condition. After an accident at the ball, and a series of other curious events where she feels the presence of magic, she begins to suspect that someone is targeting members of the War Office, including her father. Sophie must pull all of her resources to help find out who is the mastermind behind the plot before it is too late.
