Witch’s Sacrifice : Some doors can never be closed…
Evelyn Hemlock is gone, but her actions have cast ripples through the supernatural world. Now the gods that once threatened our survival are on the brink of returning, and Evelyn is prepared to do anything to meet their challenge.
Starting with kidnapping my friends.
To save the people love, it’s up to me to dig up my coven’s dark secrets in order to bring Evelyn down. Defeating her might mean dooming myself to suffer the Hemlocks’ curse in her place, but if I let her live, then the Ancients will devour the world.
One way or another, this is the end of the Hemlock Coven.
“A spark pinged on my vision—not in the waking world, but beneath and above it all at once, in the realm only visible to those of us who possessed the spirit sight. There you are.
The flashing orange lights of old display boards pierced the gloom, bringing a rush of anticipation. “We’re close.”
“How close?” Ilsa asked. Once, she’d have been able to sense the dead herself, but that was before Evelyn Hemlock had stolen the source of her power. “Is the spirit in this realm or outside of it?”
“Not sure.” If I concentrated hard enough, I could fool myself into thinking I sensed the current of energy which formed the spirit line that ran through the heart of the train station, fuelled by the magic that concealed my coven from sight.
My lungs constricted when I saw the outline of another person hovering ahead. Indistinct features, but my mind filled in the gaps, picturing a young woman with long curly hair, high cheekbones, grey-blue eyes…
The blurred shape remained indistinct. Hidden by magic. It’s not her, Jas. Pull yourself together.
Evelyn Hemlock would face me head-on, if at all.
I drew in a breath. “I think she’s hiding on the other side. I’ll have to cross over.”
