Nadia, her dad, and her little brother, Cole, have just moved to Captive’s Sound after Nadia’s mother abandoned them. Aside from the fact that Nadia’s a witch and her mother was teaching her how to use her powers, everything is fine. Until, of course, they actually get to Captive’s Sound where Nadia realizes that a powerful, evil sorceress is at work. As soon as they pass the town’s border, their car crashes into a lake and starts to sink slowly. A strange boy, Mateo Cabot, saves Nadia, pulling her out of the wreckage. Nadia later learns that Mateo is cursed; his whole family is and has been for generations. She also learns that Mateo’s best—and only—friend, Elizabeth, may not be who she claims. Nadia, Mateo, and a new friend (Verlaine) set out to seek what is destroying Captive’s Sound and Mateo’s family, stop it, and finally bring peace to the world around them.
