High in their mountain covens, red witches pray to the Goddess, protecting the Witchlands by throwing the bones and foretelling the future.
It’s all a fake.
At least, that’s what Ryder thinks. He doubts the witches really deserve their tithes—one quarter of all the crops his village can produce. And even if they can predict the future, what danger is there to foretell, now that his people’s old enemy, the Baen, has been defeated?
But when a terrifying new magic threatens both his village and the coven, Ryder must confront the beautiful and silent witch who holds all the secrets. Everything he’s ever believed about witches, the Baen, magic and about himself will change, when he discovers that the prophecies he’s always scorned—
Are about him.
This is a wonderful book. Betrayal, bravery, frienship and coming into your own make for a very suspenseful storyline. With the realization that not all motives are pure and good the characters have themselves one wild adventure. Oh, yeah.... and lots of magic both light and dark. Not just the ordinary spells and hexes flying around in this story. This is soooo much more. A very exciting read. The descriptions of everything is very vivid. Just when you think you know who the bad guy is you get a BIG surprise. That leads you to take a double look at all things involved in this plot. I Loved It!!
