Overview

Four centuries ago witch hunters killed the seven Yardley sisters.
Now Department 18 must battle...the eighth witch!

Four hundred years ago six of the seven Yardley sisters-all witches-were hunted down and killed. The seventh lived long enough to give birth to a daughter. Now, centuries later, that daughter has resurfaced in the town of Ravensbridge, more powerful than her mother or aunts ever were. She has honed her powers, can change shape at will, and has only one ambition-to bring her family back from the dead to seek vengeance against the descendants of all who slaughtered them. Ravensbridge once lived in fear of the seven Yardley sisters, but they have yet to experience the terror of...the Eighth Witch.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A voice both uniquely entertaining and profoundly disturbing.”
—Brian Keene, Author of The Rising

“Maynard Sims knows how to scare the reader.”

—The Horror Review

“Amazing. One of the most frightening books of the year."
—Famous Monsters of Filmland on Black Cathedral

Publishers Weekly
The third Department 18 novel (after Black Cathedral and Night Souls), a consistently entertaining blend of supernatural horror and British drawing room mystery, overcomes spots of leaden writing with sturdy plotting skills. With swift, vicious strokes, the writing team of L.H. Maynard and M.P.N. Sims dispatches an upscale married couple in the English town of Ravensbridge with suitably gruesome detail before gearing down to a more leisurely pace with the entrance of Robert Carter, the psychic detective for a secret British agency devoted to investigating the paranormal. While visiting an old friend, Carter begins to question whether several local murders are connected. His investigation inadvertently inspires a rash of attacks and uncovers a link to a family of witches who were murdered 400 years before. Intersections among the expansive cast of well-delineated characters escalate the tension as the story moves toward a surprising whodunit conclusion. (Nov.)
