'A fountain of power rose up and surged out through my eyes. I opened my fists to the sky and flames shot into the air.'
When Roberto arrives in Italy from Australia he discovers dark family secrets: la magia, the power that is feared and suppressed, and a tragic story of love and icy revenge. Roberto has felt the power - his own power - burning through his fingertips. Angelica has it too. But together can they stop the curse spreading beyond their family and into the world?
Power to Burn is a bewitching fantasy adventure in which Anna Fienberg reveals family life in all its drama and passion.
