Nightcraft Quartet Book 03: The Lovers Three
After a long trip to the Old Country, Callie blissfully awaits the finalization of her marriage contract to a dreamy warlock, the father of her beautiful newborn child. She loves her house, she loves her baby, and she loves her life. What could be better?
Except...something's not right. Having a newborn and adjusting to motherhood is a lot, but her frazzled mind is due to something more sinister than post-pregnancy brain. When Callie starts to remember the dangerous secrets she uncovered in the Old Country, she also remembers the stakes. The future of witchkind depends not only on her recovering her memories from the golem she entrusted them to, but also revealing the plans of one of their leaders. Gregorio Andromedus is a man Callie once trusted, her mentor and teacher, and the father of her betrothed. He's also responsible for the death of her best friend—and his plans for witchkind would mean sacrificing everything Callie cares about.
But to take him down, she might have to risk it all...
Shannon Page was born on Halloween night and spent her early years on a back-to-the-land commune in northern California. A childhood without television gave her a great love of the written word. At seven, she wrote her first book, an illustrated adventure starring her cat Cleo. Sadly, that story is out of print, but her work has appeared in Clarkesworld, Interzone, Fantasy, Black Static, Tor.com, the Proceedings of the 2002 International Oral History Association Congress, and many anthologies, including the Australian Shadows Award-winning Grants Pass, and The Mammoth Book of Dieselpunk. She also regularly publishes articles and personal essays on Medium.com. Books include The Queen and The Tower and A Sword in The Sun, the first two books in The Nightcraft Quartet; novel Eel River; story collection Eastlick and Other Stories; personal essay collection I Was a Trophy Wife; Orcas Intrigue, Orcas Intruder, and Orcas Investigation, the first three books in the cozy mystery series The Chameleon Chronicles, in collaboration with Karen G. Berry under the pen name Laura Gayle; and Our Lady of the Islands, co-written with the late Jay Lake. Our Lady received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Library Journal, was named one of Publishers Weekly’s Best Books of 2014, and was a finalist for the Endeavour Award. Forthcoming books include Nightcraft books three and four; a sequel to Our Lady; and more Orcas mysteries. Edited books include the anthology Witches, Stitches & Bitches and the essay collection The Usual Path to Publication. Shannon is a longtime yoga practitioner, has no tattoos (but she did recently get a television), and lives on lovely, remote Orcas Island, Washington, with her husband, author and illustrator Mark Ferrari.
