People are supposed to be thrilled about getting shiny new magical powers.
At least, that’s what reluctant shaman Joanne Walker always imagined. But shamanic healing comes with expectations and duties way beyond her comfort zone, and she would like nothing more than to stick her head in the sand and hope it all goes away rather than adapt to her unexpected new gifts.
(Spoiler alert: playing ostrich never makes the problem go away.)
When her cryptic spirit guide Coyote disappears, Joanne, still hoping to find her way back to a non-magical life where she only has to worry about herself and her beloved classic Mustang, looks for help from other sources...and is relieved to find a gathering of witches eager to accept her into their coven. Their approach to magic is different from what Joanne has learned so far, but there are other guides in the magical Lower World, and Joanne begins to feel that she can handle this—as long as other people are in charge.
But the harder she pulls away from her alarming new talents, the farther Joanne moves from the path that she’s meant to be on. As demons rise from the Lower World, and dangerous spells are cast, it’s the people around her who will pay the price...unless Joanne stops searching for a way back to the life she used to know.
