The Witch of the Wood

The Witch of the Wood

TheWitchOfTheWood_coverProfessor Rudy Barnes attends a faculty in-service meeting and falls in love with one of the office staff members named April Orr.  They have an explicit affair, and she turns out to be someone different than the person he thought she was.

Together they have a son, and Rudy finds out all too late that April is a shape-shifting witch. Their child Wolfie, is a warlock bent on destroying every male of the human species.

Rudy is faced with a mind-boggling personal dilemma. Does he join his son in this bloody quest, or will he sacrifice the boy in order to fulfill a basic human moral?

When he makes his devastating decision, it sets off a chain reaction that breaks an ancient spell, causing the world’s first true apocalypse. The magic unleashed comes from the most unexpected of sources – it comes from the trees.
