Riley Oh can't wait to see her sister Hattie get initiated into the Gom clan, a powerful lineage of Korean healing witches their family has belonged to for generations. Although Riley is desperate to follow in her sister's footsteps when she herself turns thirteen, she's a saram — a person without magic — which makes her feel like even more of an outsider than being adopted. Then Hattie and Riley find a spell that should allow them to share Hattie's magic. It's a perfect plan! Until it isn't.
When the sisters attempt to violate the laws of the Godrealm, Hattie's life ends up hanging in the balance, and to save her Riley has to fulfill an impossible task: find the last fallen star. But what even is the star, and how can she find it? As Riley embarks on her search, she finds herself meeting fantastic creatures and collaborating with her worst enemies. And when she uncovers secrets that challenge everything she has been taught to believe, Riley must decide what it means to be a witch, what it means to be family, and what it really means to belong. Graci Kim's first book in the Gifted Clans series is a powerful story of magic, sisterhood, and self-acceptance.
"Exploring familial bonds, belonging, and community, this is a fast-paced urban fantasy drawing on Korean mythology. Riley and her friends navigate Los Angeles’ Koreatown and run-ins with dokkaebi and inmyeonjo with a frantic, upbeat energy. Complications and twists keep the plot engaging and snappy.... A fun, new magical world that promises more adventures to come." — Kirkus Reviews
