Before the light is reborn within the womb of darkness and the Sun returns, will Winter reverse the curse?
When High Priestess Iris Rose-Thorne bets her granddaughter's womb in a broom flying contest–and loses, Winter wonders where the real danger lies: from the Witch Hunters she fled from the far North or her shady grandmother.
She finds safety with Turmeric of the Wormwood clan. His eagerness to protect her warms her frozen heart. But her love for him defies the Segregation Curse of Old, cast by the Elders to preserve ancient clan bloodlines.
Can they find a way around the Segregation Curse of Old to be together?
And with time running out as the Winter Solstice nears, will Winter be able to reverse the curse on her womb? Or will she agree to her fate and remain barren?
