15-year-old Julie Richardson is about to learn that being the daughter of a witch isn't all it's cracked up to be. When she and her best friend and uber-geek, Marcus, witness an elderly lady jettisoned out the front door of her home, it's pretty obvious to Julie there's a supernatural connection. The house is occupied by a poltergeist and in order to reclaim it, Julie's going to have to exorcise the spirit. Of course, she'll need her mother's help and what teenager in their right mind wants that? Surely she can do this on her own - right...?But there's a whisper of menace behind increasing levels of poltergeist activity all over town. After a large-scale paranormal assault on Julie's high school, her mother falls victim to Endless Night - a dark spell that rips her mom's soul from her mortal body. Now it's a race against time to find out who is responsible or Julie won't just lose her mother's soul, she'll lose her mother's life.
Whoever said being a teenage witch would be easy? For fifteen-year-old Julie Richardson and the city's resident protector from supernatural evil, the Left Hand Path doesn't give a damn if you've found true love for the first time in your life. There's someone lurking the halls of Crescent Ridge High School with enough malice to unleash an epidemic of Soul Worms - supernatural larvae that feed on the very fabric of a victim's humanity. After witnessing the death of one of the most popular kids at school, Julie and über genius boyfriend Marcus find themselves in a race against time to find out who is behind the attacks. All the evidence points to a horrifying plot at the City Weir during the Winter Solstice; the place where icy waters of the Bow River and a thunderous spillway will mean the deaths of more than a hundred of Julie's classmates. If she has any hope of saving their lives, she'll need a little help from a coven of white witches and an Aboriginal mage whose snarky attitude is matched only by her magical prowess.
