Shadow of the Witch:Book One: the Village Barbara Jay
The Shadow Witch (Classic Reprint): Gertrude Crownfield
In Faerie, magical power means everything. Keeping it means finding the key. After barely escaping with my life, returning to Faerie is the last thing I want to do. But my mission has grown only stronger now that I´ve sworn to save more held trapped in that realm. If only I know about their fate, then I´m sure as hell going to save them. Even if it means returning to hell. The upside is I now know where Julia is being kept. The downside is she´s being used as bait by the High Mage. Meanwhile, the Seelie are losing their stranglehold on magical power as the realm destabilizes around them. That only makes them more dangerous in their quest to regain immortality. There´s both fighting in the streets and search parties on the hunt. I soon learn those men are hunting for me. My only hope is taking refuge with more of the hunted, the rebel faction plotting to take back magical power. They need me and I need them. But there´s another who needs me, too: the intoxicating fae lord who hasn´t forgotten what passed between us. It may be that his power over me proves too hard to resist. But how can I know if he wants me for who I am or because of the magic that may lay hidden within me? Because if I´m the one foretold in the prophecies, I may hold the fate of three realms in my hands. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rachel Dulude.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes a trilogy about the land we´re drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to love? Book One of The Cousins O´Dwyer Trilogy Dark Witch With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors´ blood and magic have flowed through generations-and where her destiny awaits. Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan´s directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O´Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives. When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he´s three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package. Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself-and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Iona´s family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope-and love-alive?
