Overview

Céline and Amelie Fawe can see into anyone’s past and future simply by touching him. They have used their powers to secure sanctuary—and a fine apothecary’s shop—in the village around Castle Sèone. But their continued safety has a price....



Far to the north, the men of an isolated silver mining community are turning into vicious “beasts” that slaughter anyone in sight. The mines belong to the noble family of Prince Anton—ruler of Castle Sèone and Céline and Amelie’s patron—and Anton’s tyrannical father has ordered his son to solve the mystery as a test of his leadership. He has no choice but to send the witches into the perilous north to use their abilities to discover the cause of the transformations. Given how much they owe the prince, the sisters have no choice but to go.



Together with the overprotective Lieutenant Jaromir, Célene and Amelie enter the dark world of a far-off mining camp tainted by fear, mistrust, and enslavement—and haunted by men turning into massive mad wolves without warning. Now the two must draw upon strength and cunning they never thought they possessed not only to solve the mystery, but to survive....

    I think Barb Hendee has created a series that is definitely goin

    I think Barb Hendee has created a series that is definitely going to live on throughout literary history. The characters are realistic the story lines flow to the point where the book cannot be put down. You see the growth of the characters from the first book in the series. She has thrown in some surprises that I have a feeling are going to take the story to a different place than I originally thought, and it's going to be interesting to see how the stories will play out in the long run. If you enjoy fantasy writers such as J.R.R. Tolkein and George R.R., Martin you'll definitely enjoy this book. I don't want to put any spoilers because it will ruin it for those reading this review, but I can say that I can't wait for the next book in this series! Bravo Mrs. Hendee!
