An ancient town where Witches once met a horrible doom that would have kept H.P. Lovecraft in terror. Family relationships that even Jacqueline Suzanne would be too horrified to describe. Life among the mob that Mario Puzo couldn't reveal. A mystery with so many twists and turns that Sherlock Holmes would have been baffled. And magick real magick as only a Pagan High Priestess could describe it. Put this all together and you have Murder at Witches' Bluff by Silver RavenWolf.
This story takes place in Cold Springs, Penn., a small town with an evil history that is now cursed by a plague of fires. Who or what is the cause? Tanner, the firefighter, is trying to figure that out. But can he be trusted? He's been hitting the bottle ever since his wife died and his children were taken away. Or maybe Billy the cop can stop the fires ... if he's not too busy with his drugs and hookers.
Into this mix comes feisty Siren McKay. She just beat a murder rap in New York. Having been accused of killing the man who had kept her as his mistress for years, she was freed by the testimony of a man she didn't know. Now, she has come back to her ancestral home wondering who he was and why he lied to save her from conviction.
As the fires continue, the body counts starts to rise. Billy, Tanner, and Siren slowly start to figure out the clues, each one producing a new shock or a new terror. Will Lexi, the retired stage magician, help or hinder the investigation? Why does Siren hate her half-sister, Gemma? What secrets does Siren's Uncle Jess know about her and Gemma? And what about the head of the coven, the elderly Nana? Does she have the key to the mystery?
This is a novel crafted in the genre known as "Magickal Realism." Mixed in with fictitious story elements are techniques actually used by people practicing magick today. From the very first page, this gripping story will cast a spell on you, dragging you into its web of history filled with hate and corruption, leading to passions and death. The conclusion is so gripping it could almost be termed "operatic," as one by one the players face the consequences of their lifetimes of evil.
Novels such as Peyton Place ripped the cover off the image of the "nice" town. Now you can read about all of the jealousies and hatreds, the lusts and perversions of this adult-themed novel. By blending in the magick she has known for years (she is the head of 11 covens in eight states), Silver RavenWolf has created an exquisite blend of horror, mystery, and magick that will have you turning pages to find out what will happen next.
This is the perfect novel to curl up with in front of a fire. And if you happen to hear any spooky sounds, don't worry. After all, it is just a story ...
