The Blood have waited centuries for the coming of Witch, the
living embodiment of magic. But Jaenelle, the young girl prophecy
spoke of, is haunted by the cruel battles fought over her future
power. For not all the Blood await her as a savior. Some dismiss
her as myth. Some refuse to believe. And some would use her,
making her a puppet to their whims.
Only time, and the love of her guardians, have healed Jaenelle’s physical wounds. But her mind is still fragile, amnesia providing a shield from the terrors of her childhood. Nothing, however, can shield her from her destiny. And soon the day of reckoning will come. When her memories return. When her magic matures. When she is forced to accept her fate.
On that day, the dark Realms will know what it means to be ruled by Witch.
