On the isolated, windswept island of Hopeless, Maine, a young witch finds an abandoned girl named Salamandra in a gothic house. Salamandra doesn’t want to talk about what happened to her parents. She doesn’t want to live in the orphanage either, but there isn’t much choice. Growing up with ghosts, strange creatures and horrible children would be hard enough work for anyone, but there are also the demons to contend with. And Salamandra isn’t sure if she really is an orphan. She hopes so. The alternative would be far worse.
