Welcome to Woodland Creek, where one family of wizards gives new meaning to organized crime. Evie Scarlett is a shy college student. She also happens to be a wizard. She wanted two things: marry Parker Drake and leave Woodland Creek and her crazy family of wizards behind. But when Hugh Prince, a dangerous crime boss, is mysteriously murdered while awaiting trial for her father's murder, all eyes turn to the Scarlett family.
Tall, athletic Mercedes McCartney is good at what she does - shaping clay into art. Supporting the downtrodden in the town of Woodland Creek. Oh - and transforming herself into a crow to fly the night sky, the wind in her feathers, soaring over landscapes, vistas and endless wonder as she sources secrets and eavesdrops on people's folly.
