Spiral Path

(The third book in the Night Calls series)
A novel by

"The world is woven of secrets."

I was born with lightning in one hand and mercy in the other, but what I need is the pattern to my tapestry of power.

Danger drove me from the primeval American wilderness to Windward Academy, where the Wizard of Manhattan offers me one last chance to learn magical control.

Windward--where every word, every breath is a test. Every lesson can be deadly. And every challenge can explode out of the schoolroom and into the realms of demons.

Sometimes a shadow is so dark it arrives before the sun.


In the early 1800s, a young witch travels from the Michigan Territory to the island of Manhattan, where she learns that the distance between the frontier and civilization is vast, and the distance between wild magic and ritual magic even greater. Spiral Path continues the coming of age adventures of Alfreda Sorensson, protagonist of Night Calls and Kindred Rites. Readers may start anywhere in the series.
