Dark Magick


Morgan has just assisted her boyfriend in murdering a man. Cal is gravely injured and Hunter is dead.

Morgan’s suspicions arise because, before being murdered, that he was a Seeker, sent from the Council of Witches, to bring in Cal and his mother for trial, for improper use of magic. Morgan had not believed him, but now, after seeing hidden rooms and reading her mother’s diary, she is not so sure he was wrong.

Later, Morgan meets Hunter who said that his cousin saved him from drowning after he had fallen off the cliff into the ocean. Morgan and Hunter then proceed to look into each other’s minds, revealing the secrets within. Morgan learns about Cal’s true intentions and Hunter learns that Morgan had no evil intent aside from saving her boyfriend, Cal.

Morgan also learns that Cal and his mother are part of an organization working to destroy all witches who are not part of their clan, Woodbane, and they want Morgan because she is a Woodbane princess and an extremely powerful witch. However, when Morgan confronts Cal about this new revelation, he proceeds to kidnap her, saying that he only wants what is best for her.

Will Morgan find a way to harness her powers and break free from the clutches of evil?
