Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.
In the pulse-quickening world of Season of the Witch, love faces its most perilous test—thrust into the crucible of a modern-day witch hunt fueled by terror and technology. As Shakespeare wisely noted, the course of true love is never smooth.
As the Wheel of the Year turns to Ostara, Maren Lilienthal and Cyrus Harper anticipate the season of new beginnings after being falsely accused of murder. Instead, the witch and her tech billionaire lover become ensnared in a perilous web.
A mysterious stalker, armed with tech skills rivaling Cyrus's own, sends poisonous bouquets and ominous messages to Maren. Simultaneously, a relentless tabloid reporter sharpens her quill, aiming to tarnish Cyrus's reputation. Another threat emerges when a homegrown anti-capitalist terrorist group fixates on the couple, invoking the chilling mandate: "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live."
As the violence escalates—protests, bomb threats, and snipers—Maren turns to the Tarot for guidance. The Magician card appears repeatedly, a cryptic clue that might lead to the enigmatic stalker. Is this shadowy figure manipulating tabloids and terrorists and driving Maren and Cyrus toward the edge of disaster?
In this electrifying odyssey, where magic collides with the harsh realities of danger and technology, Maren and Cyrus must navigate a treacherous terrain. If the Tarot's cryptic messages hold the key to unraveling the truth, the lovers must expose their tormentors and sever the perilous ties that bind them before it’s too late.
Brace yourself for a spellbinding tale where love faces the crucible of danger and only the strongest bonds endure. If you enjoyed the magical realism and suspenseful romance of Deborah Harkness’s All Souls Trilogy combined with the savvy and sassy detective in J.D. Robb’s In Death series, then you’ll love Season of the Witch.
