About The Event

Nola is a city full of wonders. A place of sky trolleys and dead cabs,  where haints dance the night away and Wise Women help keep the order. To  those from Away, Nola might seem strange. To Perilous Graves, it's  simply home.

In a world of everyday miracles, Perry might not have a talent  for magic, but he does know Nola's rhythm as intimately as his own  heartbeat. So when the city's Great Magician starts appearing in odd  places and essential songs are forgotten, Perry realizes trouble is  afoot.

Nine songs of power have escaped from the piano that maintains  the city's beat, and without them, Nola will fail. Unwilling to watch  his home be destroyed, Perry will sacrifice everything to save it. But a  storm is brewing, and the Haint of All Haints is awake. Nola's time  might be coming to an end.
