Finn, Stace, and Simon didn't expect a perfect welcome upon their arrival in Chalet, and those expectations prove correct. Simon has to deal with the mistrust of most people in the town, and the sabotage attempts from a coworker who never wanted him to return. Stace is thrilled when an old friend of hers finds his way to them-but the feeling fades when it becomes clear that he and Finn don't get along. The Gods and Goddesses quickly surmise that jealousy is at the root of their arguments, and debate over ways to toy with the situation. But those problems pale in comparison to what happens when a sociopath arrives-a fare who's determined to use her magic to tear the fledgling community apart.
