One hundred years ago, a sheriff’s posse killed dark warlock Rhyfel Gremory, but his witch-disciples escaped, and their magic made them nearly immortal. To keep their power, each year one of the witch-disciples kills a descendant of one of the men in the posse, a twelve-year cycle that has cost dozens of lives, including that of Seth Tanner’s brother, Jesse.
Seth rescued Evan Malone from one of the witches, and they’ve
fallen in love despite the danger and chaos, going on the road to complete the
quest and bring an end to the ritual murders. Their relationship is new, their
emotions are raw, and the danger is real. It’s a challenge to find their way as
a couple while they’re on the road together in the close quarters of Seth’s
RV, training in magic and combat skills to fight off a supernatural
In pursuit of the next witch-disciple, Seth and Evan team up with
older hunters Milo and Toby as their quest to stop a century-long killing spree
takes them to a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains. They’re ahead of the
sacrifice cycle, with plans to stop the murders and kill the dark witch. Only
this time, the hunters become the hunted when the witch knows they’re coming to
get him, and has deadly plans of his own. When their lives are on the line,
will love be enough?
Flame and Ash is the third novel in the Witchbane series. It is a
MM romance intended for readers 18 years of age and older.
“I’m excited about getting to spend time
with them,” Evan said. His expression sobered. “I hope they like me.”
Seth gave his hand a squeeze. “You’re
hardly a stranger. You’ve spoken with them on the phone and on video calls.
Trust me, they will love you. They know I’ll be more careful, now that you’re
in the picture.” Careful for Evan and for himself. Hunting didn’t usually make
for a long life, but Toby and Milo proved that a happy ending was possible. Now
that Seth had found Evan, he wanted that same future desperately, enough to
make him both fearless and more cautious.
“I know. But it’s like meeting the
family,” Evan replied, dropping his voice.
“My mom and dad would have loved you,”
Seth said. “They were very chill about everything except when I went into the
army. They were worried about me, and they had reason to be.” He smiled,
remembering. “Mom taught me to catch a football—she had five brothers—and how
to ride a motorcycle. Dad helped me with my homework and taught me how to
“Most of the things we did as a family
centered around the church,” Evan said quietly. He rarely spoke of his family.
“Picnics and retreats and music festivals, that kind of thing. But one year, we
did a road trip to Mount Rushmore. Mom had always wanted to see it. I guess she
figured it wasn’t frivolous because it was about history. It was nice. That was
the year before they found out about me, and after that…” Evan turned and
looked out the window. Seth kept a grip on Evan’s hand, trying to curb his
anger. He doubted he would ever meet the Malones, but if he did, Seth intended
to give them a piece of his mind.
“I was going to come out to my parents
when Jesse died, and everything went off the rails,” Seth said. “Jesse had
already figured it out. Hell, I think he knew before I did.”
He struggled not to let self-recrimination
color his tone, but that internal battle waxed and waned on a daily basis.
After all, Seth had gone along with Jesse’s idea to do a bit of amateur ghost
hunting at a haunted bridge that rumor claimed was a hell gate. It was supposed
to be a fun night spent drinking beers and making a hoax video to prank some of
Then one of the immortal disciples of a
long-dead dark warlock grabbed Jesse as the next victim in a century-old cycle
of ritual slaughter, wounding Seth in the process. By the time Seth regained
consciousness, it was too late. His wild story placed him under suspicion and
briefly in a psych ward, until Seth learned to tell the doctors what they
wanted to hear. By that time, his parents were dead, and his home had been
destroyed in a fire. All he had left was the RV, the truck, his motorcycle,
memories, and vengeance.
“I wish I could have met them,” Evan replied
wistfully. “And I wish I could say the same about my folks, but…you know…”
“Yeah. Fuck them.”
Evan nodded. “Right. Because we’ve got our
own weird little hunter family now, and I like it that way.”
