The Black Act Book 4: Witch Twins Rebellion
by Louise Bohmer
About: The history of a curse is filled with bloody battles, bitter hatred, and dark secrets.
Through five generations, ghosts of war haunt the wise women. When the rebellion of Glenna ends, their curse sleeps bound in the Tunnels of the Dead, waiting for its chance to re-awaken the war between the wood people and Dalthwein clans. Claire, a wise woman born in the valley of the fae, unwittingly helps it escape imprisonment, while her twin sister Anna receives psychic glimpses of ancient secrets she must unravel. With her scribe teacher Rosalind, she also struggles to uncover the reasons behind Claire’s strange behavior, ever escalating since the death of their guild mother, Grianne.
The Age of the Wise Women will cease if the curse does not end with Anna and Claire. Perhaps inheriting the mistakes of their ancestors and learning the truths of their identities will bring great suffering for these witch twins.
In The Black Act Book 4: Witch Twins Rebellion the story of Glenna, a wise woman haunted by the ghosts of her family curse, unfolds and her connection to Anna and Claire is revealed, along with devastating truths for Claire and her lover Luthien.
Excerpt: “The altercation between my former self and Corrigan isn’t a secret,” the Oak King said. “Nor do we feel a need to spread it around and validate—honor—a negative time in our shared histories. While we do believe in learning from our mistakes, the fae don’t believe in glorifying them.”
Goddard snickered. He turned in a slow circle with his arms held out at his sides, palms up and hands held high.
“A curse,” he shouted to the gathered crowd. “A flimsy string of uttered words and an iron dagger through the heartcore. That was how my great ancestor put an end to your powerful Oak King. He turned the witch magics against you. Used your own sacred practices to shame you.”
The Oak King snorted. His face contorted into a wrinkled, ugly frown. “He raped a young witch girl’s body and mind. He took our spells and perverted them. Corrigan and his followers committed black acts. He endangered both our peoples’ well being. He deserved the death he received.”
Goddard turned away, still laughing a low, hideous laugh. But Drea sensed his childish rage was fading.
The king watched her father for a moment then made his way back toward the table. She was about to turn away with the rest of the crowd when a shrill scream broke the renewed calm.
