Kerrick Malone is an ordinary man with extraordinarily good luck. His latest fantasy novel has become a bestseller. His wife is brutally murdered. In his pursuit of the truth about her death, he meets Arden McEwan, a woman with secrets. She can read people’s thoughts and their pasts by touching them or their belongings. Arden discovers Kerrick’s wife was slaughtered by otherworldly creatures directed by Nadra, a woman who controls supernatural power. Kerrick encounters what he has written about, but not believed — real magic that can open portals to other worlds. He and Arden must learn to control the power, and together they face Nadra and the Old Magic — the Magic of Unmaking. Old Magic can undo the forces that bind the Gates between worlds. If the Gates open, hideous creatures will be released. Under Nadra’s guidance the creatures will destroy humankind, and she will rule.
Arden McEwan thought she and Kerrick Malone had saved Earth from the clutches of the evil Nadra. She was wrong. Nadra is back as an eight-legged horror from the darkest pits of Magic, bent on using a dolmen gateway to invade Earth and convert all its people into spider-slaves. And without Kerrick’s help, Arden is not sure she can stop Nadra in time. Arden must make a decision: Face the scourge and her own doom, or trust a stranger she knows nothing about.
