Wither's Legacy

A Wendy Ward Novel

She came to life on Halloween. She cast a wicked spell upon the residents of Windale, Massachusetts. And then she was destroyed...but Elizabeth Wither, the leader of an ill-fated coven of witches, still haunts the one human powerful enough to dispel her ancient curse: the supernaturally gifted Wendy Ward.
Hers was the name on the dying Wither's lips -- the time will come.

A yellow-eyed, seven-foot beast whose blind allegiance to Wither fuels its hunger -- captive to the urge to find its special prey....
