J.D. joins us at 10pE; at 9pE Joel and Eric review the week’s paranormal news from the America’s Most Haunted Twitter feed.
The King of Bones and Ashes
From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Witching Savannah series comes more witchery in the form of a young witch’s quest to uncover her family’s terrifying history…
Magic is seeping out of the world, leaving the witches who’ve relied on it for countless centuries increasingly hopeless and helpless. While some see an inevitable end of their era, others are diving into the abyss, willing to sacrifice former allies, friends, and family to retain the power they covet.
While other witches flail about in madness and despair, young Alice Marin is using magic’s waning days to delve into the mystery of numerous disappearances in the occult circles of New Orleans. Alice disappeared once, too—caged in an asylum by blood relatives. Recently freed, she fears her family may be more involved with the growing crisis than she ever dared imagine. Yet the more she seeks the truth about her family’s troubled history, the more she realizes her already-fragile psyche may be at risk. Discovering the cause of the vanishings, though, could be the only way to escape her mother’s reach while determining the future of all witches.
