Title: Hagitha’s Chronicles
Author: Kelly Madden
Publisher: Wild Child Publishing
Length: Novel
Sub-Genres: Paranormal

Hagitha is a just your ordinary witch in an ordinary coven. Nothing much special happens—in fact, things are so mundane that Hagitha spends most of her time cobweb gathering and wasting way too much energy on witchy salves and beauty spells. Until one day, when a strange applicant to the coven challenges her in a way she had never imagined, and Hagitha realizes perhaps her life is not so boring after all. Hagitha sets up shop as a detective, and soon discovers that with vampires, trolls, dragons, ghosts and more, she may have more business than she can handle!

The trees gradually became thinner, and Hagitha watched as Wytheria reached the edge of an open glade. The odd woman checked carefully in all directions and walked quickly across the moon-washed glade towards a broad rock face. Hagitha hovered at the edge of the meadow and wondered where Wytheria would go, as the sheer wall of stone would have been impossible to scale. Very curious now, she leaned carefully around the tree she was hiding behind and almost yelped in surprise as Wytheria raised her arms and loudly recited what sounded like a chant:

Dogs and bunnies, squirrels and cats
Toads and frogs and rats and bats
Things we like to smash and eat
But them Witches got us beat

Says the critters help them spell
Keeps them all won’t even sell
Thinks we’re dumb, but we is smart
Dress up like a Witchy tart

Wytheria finished the chant with a loud snorting chuckle. The wall started to shimmer, and a wide doorway appeared. Hagitha almost cried out in horror as Wytheria shrugged off her skin as easily as a socialite discarding an evening wrap, exposing the large, green, wart-covered body of a Forest Troll.
