Miles Warren hails from a long line of psychics. Resigned to a life in the family business, Miles is perfectly happy, thank you very much—except that he’s constantly consumed by anxiety, hides his sexuality from almost everyone, and always feels exhausted from long nights spent wrangling angry ghosts. Perfectly happy.
Miles’ comfortable routine is interrupted when he starts to see the reflection of a strange boy in his mirror. He discovers the boy is none other than Gabriel Hawthorne, whose family have a mysterious, decades-long feud with Miles’ own—and that the visions are a premonition of his death. Gabriel is everything Miles expects from a Hawthorne—rude, snobbish, irritatingly good-looking—but Miles isn’t going to stand by and let someone murder him. (Even if he understands the impulse).
The two form an uneasy alliance, trying to work out who might want to kill Gabriel and prevent his death from taking place. As they uncover secrets about their families’ feud and dark magic swirls around the pair, Miles is horrified to realize that he doesn’t hate Gabriel as much as he’s supposed to. He might even like him.
Too bad Gabriel is almost certainly going to die.
