Magic! Mystery! Murder!
Sorceress Veras senses something strange -- tears in the wind. Her friend, the Witch of the Great East Wood needs her help!
With her new husband swordsman Nico and the sorceress Creda, she and their warrior friends travel to the Great East Wood to face new challenges . . . a powerful force is seeking control of the weather, while the Witch's health declines.
While they struggle against this mysterious force, Veras and Nico face their own challenges as they adjust to married life -- and Veras's surprise pregnancy. All of this is complicated by the presence of the sorcerer Xyron, who happens to be Veras's former lover.
