Night of Crowns

An impregnable curse has lain over the noble houses of Chesterfield and St. Burrington for centuries – and even though the manors have long since been turned into boarding schools, the curse hasn't lifted. Alice doesn't know about any of this when she comes to Chesterfield for a summer school. But when she discovers a fellow student turned into stone in the forest and the symbol of a chess piece appears on her wrist, she finds herself occupying a very special role in a magic game of love and death.
