A gift ... A prophecy ... A Curse ... With Junie Cauldwell’s 16th birthday comes an unexpected gift—she’s a witch, one in a long line of powerful women who either mastered their magic or fell under its spell. Junie’s mother was one such victim, a spiteful woman who harbors a secret about their extraordinary bloodline. Social outcast Junie has only ever found comfort in two things; her best friend Miles (a boy who suddenly seems much “friendlier” than ever), and Armistice Manor, a remote hotel run by her vivacious Aunt Melinda. Things are different at Armistice this visit however, and not just because Junie is learning about her abilities. Unusual guests from the hidden land of Lothea fill the rooms, all seeking one thing: protection. When her aunt disappears, Junie is forced to navigate Lothea’s wild and enchanted terrain to find her, accompanied by a motley band of exiled residents. But no amount of preparation readies the young witch for what is waiting on the other side of her new life … or who.
