(From the publisher):
The Blood have waited centuries for the comingThe Blood have waited centuries for the coming of Witch, the living embodiment of magic. But Jaenelle, the young girl the prophecy spoke of, is haunted by the cruel battles fought over her future power. For not all the Blood await her as savior. Some dismiss her as myth. Some refuse to believe. And some would use her, making her a puppet to their whims.
Only time, and the love of her guardians have healed Jaenelle’s physical wounds. But the mind is still fragile, amnesia providing a shield from the terrors of her childhood. Nothing, however, can shield her from her destiny. And soon the day of reckoning will come. When her memories return. When her magic matures. When she is forced to accept her fate.
And on that day, the dark Realms will know what it means to be ruled by Witch.
