Grace lives in a small, country town. Just like any country town. With shops, a school, a football pitch and a trainline. Thereâ€™s just one thing that sets the town apart: at the age of sixteen the girls of Graceâ€™s town must undertake a journey. A Descending. On Graceâ€™s birthday it is her turn to Descend, but will she unlock her magical birthright? Or die trying? The story takes place in a fictious town where magic is engraved in the very heart of the community. Grace walks in the footsteps of generations of witches, helping to maintain the townâ€™s connection to an ancient magic, and the balance between light and dark magic, putting her own life at stake in the process. Take the first step into Margaret's literary universe.
