In 1655 Europe, a woman tells the villagers that a
lightening strike will burn the buildings killing many. Her
prophecy proves true and she is forced to flee because the
men led by Eli McGregor want to kill her and her three
daughters for using her magic to murder the innocents. The
woman is burned at the stake but her daughter Elena is not
found by the angry men. In Armaya, Michigan in 1985, Myra,
the descendant of Elena has the curse as do her three
children, Elena, Ariel and Irina. One their last night
together Myra tells them about their heritage before
Child's Services takes them away.
In Barret, Michigan, Ariel can see the dead but she doesn't
tell David, a Bill Gates type businessman about her past,
the curse or her two sisters. She wears the charm around
her wrist and when her mother appears before her she knows
her mom is dead. David loves Ariel so much he is frustrated
when she won't confide in him. When her aunt is murdered in
the manner of a witch, she knows the vendetta is still
going on. When another one is killed Ariel realizes she is
in danger from a witch hunter. By this time David knows
everything and still professes to love her but someone very
close to her tells her David will be her killer and she
begins to doubt him.
This paranormal thriller is exciting and filled with so
much action that readers won't have a chance to catch their
breath. The heroine is looking for her sisters to warn them
of their peril and a part of her doubts David's love for
her because she has been disappointed so many times before.
Readers will root for this duo to make it through the
trials they must go through and come out the other side
strong in their love for one another.
