Thorne Blackburn claimed to have magickal powers, to be able to tap into ancient wisdom. Others claimed he was a fake, cheating his many followers out of their money and destroying their free well.The truth may never be known . . . one dark, climactic night thirty years ago, Blackburn's most powerful ritual went horribly awry, leaving his flock shattered and one woman dead. Blackburn himself vanished.Now the scattered remains of Blackburn's followers have rallied around a new leader, the charismatic Justin Pilgrim. Hearing this, Thorne Blackburn's daughter, Truth, returns to the site of her mother's death and father's disappearance. Truth has many unanswered questions. Where are her long-lost half-siblings? Was her mother's death accident or murder? Is Pilgrim a charlatan, or are his claimed powers real? If he completes Thorn's ritual, will someone else die?The answers will lead Truth to deeply powerful truth of her own, one that will change her life forever.

Review quote

"Shivery [with] quite a few surprises."-- "The San Francisco Chronicle"
"Fascinating . . . Bradley's tales may not begin 'Once upon a time...' but they have that ambiance, the suspension of disbelief, the immersion in story which is the hallmark of all good [fairy tales]. "Ghostlight "is no exception." --"Rockland Courier-Gazette"
