Adopting a stone-cold poker face, Wynter Dellavale struggled to process
the disbelief that crawled over her skin. When she’d opened the door to find
her Priestess on the doorstep while their coven lingered at the front gate,
she’d thought maybe Esther was calling on her to join them all for a latenight ritual or something. But this … no, it couldn’t actually be happening.
Planting her feet, Wynter folded her arms. “This is some kind of messedup joke, right? Like, you know, humor but sort of … not?”
“This isn’t something I would ever joke about.” Esther clasped her hands
in front of her, the image of elegance. “We have no choice. A new coven will
be selected by one of the ruling Aeons in three days’ time. There is no chance
of it being us if we have a weak link. For us, you are that.”
Anger bubbled up, hot and sharp. Wynter felt a cold smile slowly curve
one side of her mouth.
The Priestess tensed. Well, Wynter wasn’t exactly known for being a
placid, sweet, touchy-feely person. More of a bitey-scratchy girl, really. Her
mother used to joke that Wynter came out of the womb flipping the finger
and snarling at anyone who dared cuddle her.
“I can be described as a lot of things, but not weak,” said Wynter.
“In terms of power, no. But having a witch whose magick has been tainted
… that is a weakness in the coven.”
Tainted. She hated that word. People had been tossing it at her for most of
her life. “Wasn’t it you who always told me to rise above my limitations and
make them work for me? That they’d only be an obstacle if I allowed it?”
The woman’s advice had often carried a condescending note, but still.
“Yes, I believe in not permitting obstacles to block our path. And that is
what you are, Wynter. An obstacle to this coven’s future prospects. You
would have been forced to leave when you turned sixteen if our prior
Priestess had not been your grandmother. Agnes could never bring herself to
cast you out, but I must. When we moved to this town eighteen years ago, we
did it for one reason only—we hoped to eventually serve the Aeons directly.
If that means snipping off any weaknesses, so be it.”
The pitiless words were as sharp and cutting as any scalpel. Personally,
Wynter didn’t see what would be so amazing about living among the
primordial beings in the underground utopia beneath the picturesque town of
Aeon. Oh sure, you’d be privy to their secrets and, given they were the first
civilization—yeah, as in Adam and Eve—they no doubt had a whole lot of
interesting knowledge to pass on. It was considered an honor to serve them,
just as it was considered an honor to be chosen to descend to their
