“a deliciously sensuous dive into Wicca with a diverse cast of characters, a coven, and a killer on the loose.” —JP McLean, best-selling author of Blood Mark
“visual and near cinematic” —Grady Harp, Reader’s Entertainment Magazine
When a third witch vanishes from Vancouver, the witches of Hollystone Coven spin a charm to catch the killer. But spells create ripples and in the ensuing chaos, an innocent seventeen-year-old girl gets caught up in the charm. As obsessed with the killer as the killer is with him, High Priest Estrada vows to find the man and stop him. Then, at their Samhain ritual, Hecate speaks through their high priestess and shocks everyone with her prophecy:
As one of you has spun the charm, now none of you are safe from harm.One who all felt they could trust, breeds deception cloaked in lust.One will gain their heart’s desire, while yet another pays with fire.Before the dark of winter night, four souls pass over into light.Once begun it cannot end, but circles round as circles bend.
To save the girl and catch the killer, Estrada journeys from the West Coast of Canada to Ireland and Beyond. Abduction, death, fire, and faeries. Who is the killer? Why is he killing witches? And how can he be stopped before Hecate’s prophecy comes true?
W. L. Hawkin weaves threads of Macbeth and ancient Irish myth with edgy romance in this mysterious urban fantasy.
