A very solid short story that takes place in the past in Karen Chance's Cassie Palmer world, but doesn't require any familiarity with the series. Kit Marlowe, one of the regular (and most intriguing) vampire characters in Cassie's stories, appears here, but this story is really about a witch named Gillian and about how the witch covens are being forced out of England by a new group called the Silver Circle. Fans of the Palmer series will recognize this group, but new readers won't feel lost at all and are sure to just enjoy the strong story. It originally appeared in The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance 2 but is now available for free from the author's website on smashwords. This story should be read before The Queen's Witch, which is a sequel to this story, and is also now available in both locations.
