In modern New York City, the magical Unseen World is populated by several Houses, including House Prospero and its rival, House Merlin. Every twenty years comes the Turning, a magical competition where the Houses vie for leadership by electing a champion--a family member or champion-for-hire--to conduct a series of magical duels. This time the Turning comes early and Ian Merlin, heir to the powerful House Merlin, is elected champion of his father's rival, House Prospero. Meanwhile, Sydney, an unknown magician and outsider, arrives with a plan of revenge, and power no one has seen before. She is hired to represent House Beauchamps in the Turning, but her real plan is to expose the Unseen World's secrets and shut down its oppressive systems--if she survives the Turning.
