In the Wild West, magic is real.

When two strangers arrive in her small town along the Oregon Trail, Gloriana Rue learns that she has the magical ability, called an Affinity, to manipulate metal. Even more shocking, her late mother was a renowned magical scholar but had abandoned the world of Affinities. Desperate to know more about this secret past, Glory agrees to attend an academy for magicians to find answers.

Soon immersed in train robberies, a magical education, and adventure, Glory begins to find her footing in this dangerous new world. Until she stumbles upon a disturbing discovery: A killer is hunting magicians throughout the American West – and he’s getting closer to her new home. Glory must glean the truth hidden in her mother’s long held secrets to save her community before it’s too late.
