The Star: Kallia, a powerful showgirl out to prove she’s the best no matter the cost.
The Master: Jack, the enigmatic keeper of the club, and more than one lie told.

Where Dreams Descend is the startling and romantic first book in Janella Angeles’ debut Kingdom of Cards fantasy duology where magic is both celebrated and feared, and no heart is left unscathed.Why am I excited?
This one is being pitched as The Phantom of the Opera meets Moulin Rouge and it just sounds so good!? Also, who can resist a book with a competitions between magicians? The cover is also gorgeous and so mysterious! I can’t wait to see what magic, mystery, and romance this story holds.
