Tara seems like a perfectly normal person. She works two jobs to cover the rent. Her boss and her co-workers exploit her good nature so she ends up working even more. And of course she constantly studies so she can pass into the next circle of witchcraft.
Then a stranger visits "Ye Olde Magick Shoppe"--not the tourist section at the front of the store, but the section at the back that only the real witches and beings of power use. He carries with him the smell of the river, the sound of the gulls, the taste of salt air.
And the feel of wet ropes, dragging Tara down beneath the water.
Circle of Air--the first book in a new urban fantasy series The Witch's Progress--brings you into the slightly twisted heart of old Portland and the magical battles that happen even among friends.
