Sometimes the greatest evil is found within ourselves.
With the evil warlock, Xander, defeated, Thorne can finally settle into a normal life with her husband Jarrett and their newborn child. But when a visitor arrives in Pine Ridge, a man long thought dead, Thorne’s nightmares begin. Her infant daughter crying. Hellhounds howling. An evil presence she cannot seem to shake. Jarrett does not trust the visitor and for good reason: he’s Xander’s brother, and he brings news that their mother, the grand high witch, Aretha, is coming to take revenge upon Thorne, her child, and anyone else who stands in her way.
But Aretha’s not the only threat to Pine Ridge. The inquisitors are coming. Children have been going missing. And Xander’s soul, trapped and contained within Thorne, is whispering to her to use the dark side of her magic. His power over her has been contained until now, but when a woman from town starts making advances on Jarrett, Thorne’s not sure how much more she can take, or if she can save both her marriage and everything else around her. Then the murders begin, and a prophecy is invoked. It soon becomes clear to Thorne that there’s nothing random about the recent evils that have descended upon Pine Ridge, and the fate of everyone rests in her hands…
Everyone has a secret. Be careful who knows yours.
No one ventures into the Black Forest without good reason. The townspeople of Pine Ridge keep far outside its border, for there’s more living among the trees than meets the eye. There are witches in the woods. Witches like the Edgewood Sisters. Under the cover of darkness, the sisters serve the people of Pine Ridge with potions or gifts of the flesh. But there’s something else in the forest, something beneath the waterfall that must be kept caged at all costs.
When the sheriff, Jarrett Deaton, falls for the beautiful Thorne Edgewood, secrets begin to surface and terrible whispers of past crimes pit the sisters against the town. A battle between white and black magic mounts as the Edgewood sisters take on a shrouded creature, hell hounds, a jealous witch and an evil warlock. As the town calls for blood, Thorne’s struggle between the light and dark leads her further and further down a dangerous path, and Jarrett might not be able to save her. Everyone has a secret. But no secret can remain buried forever...
