An ancient battle of the sexes has raged for centuries, but a strange calm has befallen the age-old conflict as of late. How were the witches subdued, and what will happen when they remember how to wield their true power?
The war went on for centuries–on one side, a coven of perpetually reincarnating witches, dedicated to cultivating their otherworldly abilities and guarding their independence; on the other, an all-male conspiracy of witch hunters known as the Architects, determined to put an end to the power of their nigh-immortal adversaries for good. Neither could land a decisive blow and the result was stalemate.
Until 2005, when everything changed.
Now, coven leader Isadora is a happy wife with a happy life in a cozy, quiet cul-de-sac in the town of Desert Canyon. She has no recollection of her many past lives; no memory of her membership in an ancient order of necromancers; no reminders of the endless war it waged; and no idea of the power that she and the other housewives of Desert Canyon possess.
But you can’t keep a good witch down–and these ladies are the best. Once they find out the truth about their white-picket prison, the men that they thought they knew are going to have hell to pay.
