One impending apocalypse. Several crazy faeries. A few troubling plagues of locusts and storms of fire... It's just another day in Manchester for the Madhatter. Madrona might still have amnesia and might yet prove to be a vicious murderess but that doesn't mean she's going to quit being a heroine just yet. However, while she might be prepared to go to any lengths to stop Rubus from triggering Armageddon, it's equally possible that the world will end as a result of her actions too. Manchester is experiencing terrifying surges in magic.

This story was performed excellently, and reminded me so much of the stories my Granny told me. It shows the harshness of the social division in Ireland and lack of education of the general population. People sought to understand their hardships and ailments, and not having any other knowledge used what they knew to explain and heal their​ problems. I believe the wise women did understand the herbs and have healings, and a lot has been lost through their practice being treated as pagan and evil. All these women wanted to do was heal and bring health and prosperity to the community even if some times their ministrations were somewhat misguided! God bless my ancestors!

A talented songwriter, Shawn Gallagher spends his days lost in reverie and wonder, oblivious to the wiles of women and the ways of the world. He claims that he's content with his life, but his music tells a different story - one of loneliness and desperate longing.

Interest in Wicca, witchcraft, and magic has increased exponentially over the past few decades. It is estimated that there are over one million practicing Wiccans around the world today. This is good news, since Wicca teaches us to appreciate the Earth, with a focus on balance and harmony with nature, and a recognition of the magical power inherent in the universe as well as in ourselves. Wicca for Beginners, by best-selling author Lisa Chamberlain, was created as an entry point for anyone seeking information about this fascinating religion.
