Summary

Summary

Real magic and witches are far more exciting than anything pop culture has dreamed up. Modern-day Witches live by one commandment--Harm None. But even knowing the Rule of Three--that which you do returns thrice to you--following that commandment isn't easy in the face of threats to their families, their jobs, and even their lives. Against such odds, can these women summon the power to follow the most sacred rule?

These stories offer a glimpse under the veil of superstitions and misunderstandings about witchery--and a fascinating look at the ancient secrets of some thoroughly modern women and men.

Includes contributions from:

Maggie Shayne Celia Moon Evelyn Vaughn Rosemary Edghill Zelina Winters Valery Taylor Jen Sokoloski Pamela Luzier Lorna Tedder
