Overview

After being neglected by her parents for thirteen years, going to live with her Grandmother is like a breath of fresh air. At her Grandmother's, she is not shunned or ignored; instead she is loved for what she is. The Last Witch.

- - - "You have more Power than you know how to use...”

With these words, Mave Mallory’s life changes forever.

After being neglected by her parents for most of her life, Mave goes to live with her eccentric grandmother: Mona Mallory. An inquisitive child with red hair and black eyes, Mave knows that her Grandmother is a Witch. Mave has always known that she is special too; she can talk to Ghosts.

In her Grandmother’s attic, Mave finds an old Mirror. It’s large and had a gold rim around it. Mave tells her Grandmother about the mirror. Mona, frightened, warns Mave three times: “Please, promise me Mave, do not touch that mirror.” But one night, Mave must break her promise.

It is the whispering that wakes her. Mave wakes to find a blue mist has enveloped the house. The mist is coming from the mirror. Mave watches in terror as one of the Ghosts she has befriended, a girl no older than her, is pulled into the mirror by white, bony hands. Mave steps through the mirror to save her, only to find herself in a place she knows, but doesn’t.

She finds herself in a world where magic is known. Where Magic is shared on the streets. Children practice spells on the street corners and you can buy spells at a corner store. There are cobble stone streets of an older time, though the villagers live in fear. During the day they hide from The Shadows. And during the night it there is strange music, it’s sound humming through the air around her.

People in the town fear her, for she is a child with the black eyes of a Witch.

Unknown to Mave, something hunts her. Older than time, Mr. Lavender knows that Mave has arrived. She is the brightest soul that he has felt in one thousand years and the magic pulsing underneath her skin calls to him. He knows that the Last Witch has come, and that he must taste it.

Now Mave must fight for her life on an unknown terrain using Magic she doesn’t understand. Coming to her aid are a few trinkets. One of them a gold locket with a hole through the middle. It shows her what is underneath the magic. What a thing really is.

What she sees through the locket frightens her. Befriended by Euwan Opal, one of the town’s children, she sees that he is not living at all, just a mass of bones, a walking skeleton. Mave fears that Euwan has a dark secret that he is not sharing, despite his coming to her aid. She wonders what that dark secret is.

Mr. Lavender is a hoarder and eater of souls. Nestled inside the Ghost Mirror, a young girl named Cleo and her new companion Amanda watch as a sinister plot unfolds. A Crow is made to find Mave. Cleo and Amanda know that Mave is their only hope to free them from the Ghost Mirror. They hope that the Crow never finds her. But in the end, it is a friend that betrays her.

When Mave is finally put face to face with Mr. Lavender, Mave must lean to use her magic to fight something darker than fear itself. She must learn to reach into her soul, if she has any hope of freeing the souls trapped in the Silver Glass.

Meet the Author

Jamieson Wolf has often viewed the world with a different eye than most people. Anything can be a story; a conversation, a flight of birds, a song. Words come from inspiration. Jamieson often feels he has too many words. "I guess I have a lot of Muses." He says, "If I don't write, I go crazy."

Writing from an early age, Jamieson was not really aware that he wanted to become a writer. Starting with poetry, he slowly began to fill journals with words. They words didn't really have meaning to him at the time; they were scratches on paper. Turning away from his words for a time, trying to find his way in the big world of the corporate drones, he enjoyed a great many different hats.

One night, after a particularly bad day at his zillionth office job, Jamieson came upon his old journals and started reading. When he was done, night had come, but instead of sleeping he got up and found a blank journal. And started writing.

"The words just kept coming." he says. "It was like they were there, underneath my skin all the time. I just didn't know it. I wanted to be an actor you know." Here he bends forward and sits in a more comfortable position. "I went to school for it and everything. I loved the acting." He makes a face. "I just didn't like the people."

Reading those words was like an epiphany. Jamieson knew what he wanted to do at that point; but it would take time. Approaching the art of writing like a Bard in training (Seven Years Learning, Seven Years Practicing, Seven Years Teaching) Jamieson has branched outward to give his voice it's hold.

Currently his work is avable in: Susan Sarandon: A True Maverick and Fantasies: The World's Greatest Short Stories. He has also had his fiction published in: The Dark Krypt, Clean Sheet's Erotica, Mytholog, The House of Pain, The Twilight Times and others. He is currently a Senior Reviewer at Linear Reflections and is currently working on his fourth serial novel and a dark children's tale.

"I just love what I do." He says. "I'm going to be telling stories for a long time to come. It's like I can tap into the world around me and hear the tattoo under the ground. It's quite the feeling."
