Stubborn and suspicious are two qualities that don’t go over well in the Queen family…
Where does my story truly begin? Maybe with the birth of twins to a soon-dead witch. Or possibly with the name bestowed on me by the Lady, the immortal we serve. She called me Sage, and my sister Wren. The Foulweather twins. As I choose to see it, my story begins when I first participated in the course of my life. When I started making my own decisions, despite everything I’d been taught. Forced recluse with a secret life? That’s me.
Sage Brighton is a young woman of incredible power, but she doesn’t decide how that power is used, or anything else about her life. As a witch of the Queen family, and a twin, Sage will serve the Lady all her days. The immortal has plans for Sage and her twin Wren. They are to be her Hands, her enforcers in the mortal, modern world. But first Sage must survive her training, learn to control her sociopathic sister without getting maimed in the process, and all the while try to keep something of her life for her own.
Stubbornness and suspicion have never served Sage so well…
There are moments when the panic swells in me as I realize afresh what I have done. To betray the immortal I was raised to serve… What was I thinking? But those are just moments. Every day I live with the consequences, and they’re worth it. If the only way I know to make the Lady suffer, to force her power to wilt, is to serve another like her, I will take it. Until I find a better way.
Sage Brighton made a choice six months ago. A choice that changed her whole world. Now she skulks in the shadows, hiding even more from her twin and the rest of the Queen family than she had before. Serving two immortals is stretching her beyond her limits. And then there’s her unwelcome attraction to Chaos, the immortal seeking to destroy her family, and her relationship with Peter. As Sage’s days and nights spiral out of control, can she figure out who to trust? A wrong move now could spell the end of everything she’s worked for. It could be the end of her.
And look for the final installment of the Foulweather Twins Trilogy in 2018!
When stubbornness and suspicion aren’t enough, running is the only option…
I may have left my home on my own terms, but even I know there’s no going back. My ties to the Queens severed, I threw myself into this new life I carved with a little too much fervor. Peter made his choice, but coming with me had its costs. And even hating what my sister has become, her absence is like missing a limb. My plan to destroy the Lady’s power over her family of witches drives me, keeps me focused. I will ruin her.
Sage Brighton has committed to a strategy to end the Lady’s rule over the world’s witches. It is taking all the energy and brainpower she can muster to gain the goodwill of those witches and convince them of her plan. She couldn’t do it without Anna, her unexpected friend. What she could do without is Peter’s anxiety. She hadn’t made him join her, after all. Now that the true battle is on, is there any space in Sage’s life for a boyfriend, anyway?
