Gemma and friends are back at Spence Academy and under the watchful eyes of their headmistress, Mrs. Nightwing, they learn decent manners, curtsies, and everything else ladylike. Gemma is unable to fit in with the mindless chatter and gossip of the other girls at her school. She feels that there’s more to life than just attending parties and dancing with men.
Now Gemma holds all the magic of the magical realms where she and her friends, Felicity and Ann have been going. She’s expected to share the magic with all the tribes in the realms but not so soon. Since Felicity desperately needs a Lady Markham to sponsor her debut in order to claim her inheritance, she needs some of Gemma’s magic to make it happen. As for Ann, well, she needs some magic to escape from being a miserable governess.
After Gemma bound all the magic at the end of the previous book, things seem to have quietened down. The girls’ only care needs be their debut in society, followed by their first season — with parties, and dresses, how exciting, right?
Yet Gemma can no longer summon the door to the realms, and she worries that her magic has dried out. On top of that, she’s having new visions about a mysterious woman dressed in lavender. Her message has something to do with a tree, the Tree of All Souls — but Gemma has no idea what that is or even whether it does even exist or not.
To top it all, some workers from the crew restoring the Eastern Wing of Spence have vanished. One of the gypsies can no longer be found. There is even a rumor about some ghostly mummers. Is this connected to the realms, and if so, can Gemma do something about it?
