Arden Beacon arrives in the port of Vigil with a job to do. Tasked with using the magic in her blood to keep the lighthouse burning, she needs to prove herself worthy of her family name and her ancestors’ profession. But the coastline Arden must keep alight is a place of secrets, rumours and tight-lipped expectations of a woman’s place. A plot swirls around the lighthouse and Arden must make sense of these dark waters – before they wash her away.
