    It’s December in the English village of Lychford - the first Christmas since an evil conglomerate tried to force open the borders between our world and...another. Which means it’s Lizzie’s first Christmas as Reverend of St. Martin’s. Which means more stress, more expectation, more scrutiny by the congregation. Which means...well, business as usual, really. Until the apparition of a small boy finds its way to Lizzie in the church. Is he a ghost? A vision? Something else? Whatever the truth, our trio of witches (they don’t approve of “coven”) are about to face their toughest battle yet!

    Andrew Waggoner has always hung around with his fellow losers at school, desperately hoping each day that the school bullies - led by Drake - will pass by him in search of other prey. But one day they force him into the woods, and the bullying escalates into something more; something unforgivable, something unthinkable. Broken, both physically and emotionally, something dies in Waggoner, and something else is born in its place.
