Plot SummaryEdit

Alexandra Quick is determined to cheat her fate and see justice done, but she faces a vengeful conspiracy and secrets she is not prepared for. She'll need the help of her friends, but even that may not be enough against the power of the Stars Above.

Ghosts of RoanokeEdit

After attending the Pirate Fleet Invasion in Roanoke with her sister and sharing an intimate moment with Payton Smith, Alex visits the Thorn family crypt to meet with her father and question him regarding the Deathly Regiment, but their conversation is cut short by an ambush and a vicious skirmish.

Daughter of ThornEdit

After conferring with her ancestor, who agrees to help her in her quest to end the Deathly Regiment after she proves to him that she is "to be taken seriously," Alex returns to Croatoa and travels back to Roanoke before heading home to Illinois after spending the summer with the Kings.

Not Clever EnoughEdit

Back in Larkin Mills, Alex receives a call from David and a letter from Innocence before winding up in an altercation with Billy Boggleston, yet despite getting herself grounded, Alex begins researching Apparition before heading to Old Larkin Pond during a thunderstorm.


After a ghastly Splinching accident, Alex is taken by Diana Grimm to Milwaukee for treatment by Alex's own half-sister, Dr. Livia Pruett, who reveals that Alex's family is larger than she believed before Grimm returns Alex to Larkin Mills and the consequences of her out-of-state trip.


Alex visits the Goblin Market with her classmates, reviving old friendships and old animosities, and ventures into the dingy back-alleys of the Market where she becomes convinced that a familiar Dark wizard is striking deals with the hags of Chicago.

A Murder of CrowsEdit

Alex returns to Charmbridge, where she experiences another life-threatening encounter on the Invisible Bridge before meeting with Dean Grimm, settling into her dormitory, confronting the Rash brothers, and finally agreeing to tell her friends about the Deathly Regiment.
