Even at five, Sadie Mae Stevens knew she could make odd things happen. But after her mother’s suicide her world went from odd to frightening. Lendra, a one-eyed, talking mountain, summons her to a forest where she is the commander and chief. Sadie is mentored on how to hunt and chain monsters.
The fairy tales her mother shared had not been make believe. A connection between Earth and a place called Dylan does exist. Now Sadie must step up to the plate in place of her mother and become defender of the two worlds.
At thirteen, Sadie’s father, who’d grown tired of the rumblings happening in her room at night, abandons her to start a new family. He sends her to Daufuskie Island to a woman who supposedly knows how to break her curse.
On the island, Sadie feels the pangs of betrayal, discovers unparalleled danger, new allies, and the smoldering truth about the wicked creature involved in her mother’s death—the Gordite Witch.
