With her innate ability to manipulate time, Esta can pilfer from the past, collecting artifacts before the Order even realizes she’s there. And all of Esta’s training has been for one final job: traveling back to 1902 to steal an ancient book containing the secrets of the Order before the Magician can destroy it and doom all with magic to a hopeless future.
