Joanna Beauchamp has kept a major secret from her daughters Ingrid and Freya for decades – they’re descended from a long line of powerful witches. She’s managed to cover her tracks well and keep them from discovering who they are until this point, but when weird things start happening to both of them and Joanna’s sister brings a warning of a lurking threat, she has no chance but to tell them who they are and where they come from. Freya and Ingrid need to have as much time as they can in order to process this life changing information and master their new abilities so they can join together to protect themselves and the rest of their family from whatever seeks to do them harm. But how long will it be before they’re comfortable enough with who (and what) they are to where they can go into battle and look after themselves accordingly?
