NoMoreA spine-chilling companion to Long Lankin, here is the story of a wronged witch’s revenge, spanning generations and crossing the shadowy line between life and death.In 1567, baby Aphra is found among the reeds and rushes by two outcast witches. No ordinary child, little Aphra’s gifts in the dark craft are clear. But when an angry mob strikes her guardians down, Aphra is left to fend for herself, shunned and feared by everyone she meets, except one man: the leper they call Long Lankin. Ostracized from society, the two find solace only in each other—but even this respite is doomed, and Aphra’s bitterness poisons her being. Ultimately tortured and burned for a witch, she manages one last enchantment: a curse on her tormentor’s heirs.Now, in 1962, Cora and Mimi, the last of the line, are trapped in the crumbling family estate, where renovation is unwittingly loosing protections against the ancient spell. Menaced by the increasingly powerful spirit of Aphra Rushes, who is intent on finishing what she began, can Mimi and Cora survive the centuries-old curse, or are their lives and souls forfeit forever?
