EVERY FAMILY HAS ITS MONSTERS . . . AND SOME ARE NOTHING BUT. Devize, Glouwer, Rusk, Druir, Roke – these are the clans who make up the notorious Five-Family Coven. This alliance of witches, changelings, and sorcerers once sought to recreate the Earth in their own image, thwarted at the last only by treachery that sent half of them to be burned alive. Now, four hundred years later, the Coven’s last descendants – psychics, ex-possessees, defrocked changeling priests, shamans for hire, body-stealing witches, and monster-slaying nuns – the bastard children of a thousand evil angels – are assembling for a final confrontation.
