Description

She was born to save what he is sworn to destroy

A lapsed Wiccan, Indira Simon doesn't believe in magic anymore. But when strange dreams of being sacrificed to an ancient Babylonian god have her waking up with real rope burns on her wrists, she's forced to acknowledge that she may have been too hasty in her rejection of the unknown. Then she meets mysterious and handsome Father Thomas. Emerging from the secrecy of an obscure Gnostic sect, he arrives with stories of a demon, a trio of warrior witches--and Indira's sacred calling.

Yet there's something even Tomas doesn't know, an inescapable truth that will force him to choose between saving the life of the woman he's come to love--and saving the world.

Our customer reviews

Before I started reading Mark of the Witch I read Legacy of the Witch. Currently it is a free ebook that gives an introduction to this series. It is a short story, only about 53 pages, and it is something I recommend you read. I thought it was enjoyable and it did help to make me more interested in this series. Mark of the Witch is the beginning of a very compelling, new paranormal series. It is about three sisters/ witches from another time who are reincarnated in order to save the soul of one a man who one of them loves. When Indira starts having strange dreams that feel like they are real, she turns to her best friend Rayne who happens to be a Wiccan High Priestess. Rayne puts her in contact with the one person who she thinks can help, her brother Father Tomas. Tomas is a Gnostic Priest and yet he knows something about these strange dreams and even though he is questioning his faith, he still wants to help Indira. I was very impressed with how both religions were represented in Mark of the Witch. The plot has many wonderful twists and turns and really was an enjoyable read. I look forward to the next books in the Portal series and seeing how the battle between good and evil ends.show more
