Shadow of the Witch:Book One: the Village Barbara Jay
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.
