The Fallen Witch: Magic doesn’t lie. Witches do.
Our Coven Leader is dead…and they think I killed him. I didn’t. I would never have hurt him. I tried everything I could to save him.
But it’s their word against mine.
And with his blood staining my hands and caked in my hair, I don’t know how I’m going to get them to believe me…
Because the truth is far more unsettling..those shadow creatures knew exactly where and when to ambush us. Someone set us up to be slaughtered…and it wasn’t me.
The scariest part is…that Ouija Board tried to warn me…
“Despite the sun still shining in the sky, the dungeon was dark and dingy. It smelled like my parents’ garage, and the cobblestoned floor and walls did nothing to hold back the chill of the air. I shivered and a broken sob ripped up my throat. I wanted to scream. I wanted to beg them to let me explain. I didn’t do this. Why won’t they let me explain?
Tears poured down my face like rivers. My eyes burned. Everything had happened so fast. Timothy had been fine. He’d been standing right there texting on his phone…and then—
I sobbed and sank down a little farther. I just needed to explain. I’m not guilty. But they hadn’t taken the magical tape off my mouth, or untied my hands. They hadn’t given me a chance, not even a second. I pulled at my restraints then hissed as something dug into my skin.
The dungeon door flew open and slammed against the wall. Constance and Daniel marched inside with someone else right behind them. I craned my neck around to look, praying it was Jackson. After everything we’d been through, he had to know I was innocent. But as my Coven Leader and Headmaster stopped outside my iron-barred cell, the third person stepped around them, and my heart sank.”
