Andromeda Klein is a quiet, booky girl with an unexciting life - until her world takes a turn for the weird. Strangely and suddenly, Andromeda's tarot card readings have begun to predict events with bizarrely literal accuracy.
It seems impossible, but it looks like her once-upon-a-time-partner-inoccultism, Daisy Wasserstrom, has begun to harass her. Which wouldn't be quite as strange if Daisy hadn't died the year before.
But what is weird is getting arguably worse. Omens, dreams, cards hidden inside a hollowed-out book, and images from a file of comics drawn by a previous inhabitant of her family's suburban duplex, are all coming together to contain hints of buried truths concerning her family, her circle of friends; her cat, and her secret, estranged, much older and forbidden boyfriend-in-theory. And as Andromeda tries to figure it all out, she finds herself in a whole world of creepy you couldn't even begin to make up.
