A Witch's Lament
The Salem Witches Book 1
Salem, Massachusetts has managed to build a thriving industry of tourism on the foundations of its dark past. But, beneath the seaside charm, bewitching shops, and seasonal surge of wannabe-witches and thrill seekers, the ancient darkness still lurks.
Oblivious to the brewing danger, Skye Temple buys a historic house in the witch capital of the world and on her first day uncovers a skeleton and ancestral diaries in her new home's library. In escalating events of magic and murder, Skye discovers her true bloodlines and a familial birth-task which involves guarding a powerful knife.
Police officer, Jerome Phips, has been searching for answers to his mother's disappearance for 30 years. She'd vanished during a ritual and none of the other coven members had information about that night. So, when he receives the phone call about a skeleton and its location, his heart beats with hope and fear that he might finally know the truth.
As information unfolds and danger heightens, Jerome discovers Skye's relationship to one of the people present during the disastrous ritual. Though anger and blame make it difficult to work together, Jerome and Skye must overcome emotions to prevent the darkness from returning and fulfilling its own long-awaited task.
