Sometimes witches hunt their own…
Someone knows my secret and is brandishing it as the weapon of my execution. I’m accused of poisoning my fellow coven Gravebriar. To my fatal regret, I cannot prove my innocence without revealing the truth I have long kept hidden: while all other Gravebriar witches are green witches and healers, my magic lies in poisons.
There is a witch who believes me, the same boy who was sent to kill me with instructions to uproot the brambles that sprouted from my grave, the only cure for a Gravebriar witch. Forge Silverthorn will be my downfall…or my salvation.
He claims there is a malicious plot in the witch town of Cauldron that threatens to close around my throat in a noose of death. Promising that I can escape by seeking the help of a banished witch who hides our kind in plain sight, he leads me to a dark circus filled with witches.
The ringmaster will only help us if we agree to join his circus of weird tricks and fiendish deeds for two nights only, using our magic to thrill his patrons. In exchange for our participation under the big top, he will divulge the information I need to save my fellow coven and clear my name.
But when dark secrets emerge from the shadows of this promised sanctuary, I’m forced to decide if I can really trust anyone, especially Forge… my would-be executioner, my coven’s sworn enemy, and my would-be love.
