Willa dreams of true events and her best friend
is a ghost. Simon can heal any wound with a touch and senses others’ emotions,

hiding behind a facade of normalcy, wondering why and how. The night Simon
walks into the Twelve Acres Diner and meets Willa face to face, in a swirl of

Across town a witch is held prisoner in the derelict
basement of an old Victorian house. One night as it rains, she dares to reach

After a daring rescue of the witch, Willa and
Simon are catapulted into the alluring but dangerous world of witchcraft and
the magic of The Six Gifts. Answers to all their questions are within reach,
but they’ve stepped into the middle of a deadly fight for the Powers of the
Earth. Do they stay, risk their lives on the promise of power, or walk away?
