Halloween is a bad time to return to the woods . . .
Madeline MacFaddin ("Mad Mac" to fans of her bestselling magical
stories) spent blissful childhood summers in Ticonderoga Falls. And
this is where she wants to be now that her adult life is falling
apart. The dense surrounding forest holds many memories, some
joyous, some tantalizingly only half-remembered. And she's always
believed there was something living in these wooded hills.
But Maddie doesn't remember the dark parts--and knows nothing of
the mountain legend that holds the area's terrified residents
captive. She has no recollection of Ash, the strange and
magnificent creature who once saved her life as a child, even
though it is the destiny of his kind to prey upon humanity. And
soon it will be the harvest . . . the time to feast.
Once again Maddie's dreams--and her soul--are in grave danger.
But magic runs deep during harvest. Even a spinner of enchanted
tales has wondrous powers of her own . . .
