Frustrated cough. Bitter, narcissistic, and grossly immature, Maple Twiggs decides to write a story. Her characters are hesitant to participate. Stella, a mostly-daft 16 year old girl, doesn't want to be the heroine of this novel, and most certainly doesn't want a love interest. Archie, the God of Destruction, is her equally reluctant love interest. Morrow and her sisters want to learn about their forbidden magical abilities. She signs on to help Maple tell this tale, because Maple is a consistently useless author. When Sylvie, Archie's friend, is trapped inside a painting by a God of Death, she wonders if she should have killed her boyfriend, Ozzie, when she had the chance. Will Stella be able to help Archie save Sylvie? Escape, dear reader, into an arty magical universe that secretly coexists with the mundane world around you.
