The fairy tale isn't over...
In the city of Talesend, where stories are history, Nick Beasley is the person to call when things go bump in the night...because he can prove that there's nothing to fear. After all, magic and monsters aren’t real.
At least, that’s what Nick has been telling people for a long time. But when he's afflicted with a very real curse while on an assignment for the mysterious Lady Cordelia Beaumont, he's forced to drastically re-think his views on magic.
As an ancient evil threatens Talesend, Nick must join forces with Cordelia to save the city from terrifying monsters. But not all stories end in "happily ever after"...and Nick's story has only just begun.
