Witching Hour
~ three short stories ~

The Standing Stones of Erelong
Elian returns to the valley she was born in, the valley where all her family were slaughtered by the Marauders. Now only a circle of standing stones remains to mark the place. But the stones harbour a secret, a secret only she can uncover...

A Sorcerous Mist
Captain Quirk's boat Sheerwater is becalmed - held in port by a thick fog. He requests the help of a powerful witch to lift the mists. But the witch's help comes at a price, a price that will bring Quirk into conflict with the powerful Druidh...

Slieau Whallian
Ginny Kerruish watches as an old woman is rolled down a hill in a spiked barrel to test whether she is a witch. The old woman cannot survive the ordeal.

Hedge Witch Sampler

Fifteen year-old Cait Weerd has no idea she's being sought by the undain: sorcerous creatures that feed off the spirit of the living. She doesn't know they need her blood to survive. She doesn't even know she's a witch, descended from a long line of witches. Cait Weerd doesn't know a lot, really, but all that's about to change.

At Manchester Central Library she's caught up in sudden violence. In the chaos she's given an old book that's been hidden there. Given it and told to run. Hide the book or destroy it. The book contains all the secrets of the undains' existence. They and their human servants want to find it as much as they want to find her.

Cait learns the fates of two worlds are at stake. Just what she needs. Along with definitely-not-a-boyfriend Danny, she has to decide what the hell to do. Run, fight or hope it all goes away.

It's only then she learns who she really is, along with the terrible truth of what the undain have been doing in our world all this time...
