This final book in the Witch Season quartet provides a thrilling conclusion as novice witch Kerry Profitt learns about magic, justice, and friendship. Readers of the other novels will know that at this point Kerry and Season Howe are hiding from their enemy, another powerful witch named Mother Blessing. All three witches are on their way to the Convocation, a gathering of witches held once every 500 years. Not only is the Convocation an entertaining and informative gathering with workshops, shopping, and fellowship, it is also the time when witches are brought to trial if necessary. Season and Mother will be pitted against each other in a trial concerning the destruction of Slocumb, a small town where both women used to live. Whichever witch loses the trial will be forever stripped of her powers. As Kerry experiences her first Convocation she realizes that she has finally found her place and purpose in this world. This quartet of novels should definitely be read in order (Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring) to provide readers with the full story. Keeping track of the soap opera-like relationships and actions will hold high school readers' interests. (Witch Season).
