"Mystery And Suspense and a Final Showdown"
Amelia Pivens witnesses her mother's murder during a Wiccan
ritual and turns her back on The Craft, but she finds out
it's not so easily done when destiny dictates she take
Through the years tragedies of losing her love ones forces
Amelia back to The Craft. She learns the legend of 'The
One' who ends the ancient war among the witches is not a
bedtime story, but very real. As more is revealed, she
realizes her life is in danger. She must make a stand, for
on her 28th birthday there will be a final battle.
The story takes place in modern time, but the back-story is
enriched with historical undertones. I expected the story
to be more about magick, witches and the war between good
and evil, but the tale is more along the lines of a
mystery/suspense novel with a heroine who happens be a
witch. So those who wish to read a book about Wiccan
practices may be disappointed, but the mystery lover will
want to be there at the final showdown. Ms. Gryphon's
suspense will magically bring you there with a few
surprises you may not have expected.
This is the first book of the series and a good
introduction to the characters.
