The Sea of the Dead
The battle for Venice might be over, but the war is just beginning… Penelope’s and Alexis’s adventure continues in this exciting second installment of The Magicians of Venice series.

Penelope has accepted her role as the new Archivist for the magicians, but with war brewing on the horizon and the tide of magic on the rise, she’s going to have to learn her way around this new and dangerous world if she has any hope of outsmarting their enemies. 

When Penelope’s friend and fellow archaeologist uncovers a scroll containing a magical secret lost in the Dead Sea for two thousand years, Penelope and Alexis must travel to Israel to find them before Abaddon and Kreios get there first.

To defeat Thevetat and his followers, they’ll need to find a weapon capable of ending him for good. As her old life collides with her new, Penelope will soon discover the price of keeping the magicians’ secrets safe.
