In the sheltered village of Silver Hollow, Keara knows exactly what she must do: Follow her mother’s strict rules and worship the twelve gods. But Keara’s twelfth birthday is looming, along with an obligation she dreads. She must sacrifice her beloved darkbeast on a holy altar.
Other children despise their bonded scapegoat animals, but Keara loves her raven, Caw. He’s her only friend, the sole creature who understands her headstrong ways.
When a traveling theater troupe passes through the village, Keara glimpses a way to escape. But the Great Road comes with its own dangers, including dread Inquisitor priests who hunt down heretics.
Will Keara find the strength to flee the only home she’s ever known? Or will she be forced to slay her closest friend on the altar of the gods?

A cozy paranormal romance by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky.
Librarian Jane Madison’s life has turned upside down since she discovered she’s a witch. The local coven has issued an invitation she can’t refuse—work a spell to protect their new safehold or lose her beloved arcane books, her sassy feline familiar, and her brooding astral protector, David Montrose.
But the coven’s test isn’t the only challenge Jane faces. There’s her new boyfriend, a handsome Brit who seems determined to distract her from magic. And a witchy friend who has a distinctly loose grasp on arcane ethics. Not to mention a long-absent mother, a mojito-loving best friend, and a boss who expects Jane to step up to the next level in library management.
Is sorcery the answer to all of Jane’s problems? Or is magic only another name for disaster?
