A powerful wizard uses dark magic to hide within the pages of a book.
Blaise compels all who touch the book to write their darkest and most powerful emotions. Growing stronger with each entry he is just pages away from a new life. The last entry will take the life of the writer and set him free. But the book is lost as Blaise’s strength fades away.
Drawn by something she doesn’t understand Sidonie, a lovely young bookbinder, discovers the dusty volume and uses her skills – and her knives – to rebind it, torturing the man trapped inside.
Pouring love into repairing the book, she feels increasingly attached to and disturbed by it, as though it is watching her.
When a handsome man appears in her house with his skin covered in writing, the attraction is instant, but Sidonie does not understand the danger.
Compelled to write in the book herself, Sidonie must choose her words with care.
