But Cat isn’t very good at magic or music, for that matter. It doesn’t help that Gwendolen, though a gifted witch, is an unpleasant girl – arrogant and bossy.

When the two are asked to move in to Chrestomanci Castle, they think it must have something to do with Gwendolen’s talent, but what if they’re wrong? What if it hasásomething to do with Cat?
