Dark witch [sound recording] / by Roberts, Nora.; Kellgren, Katherine.;
Read by Katherine Kellgren.American Iona Sheehan searches for her Irish ancestors, the O'Dwyers, to learn more about her powers and break an ancient curse, and meets Boyle McGrath."[A] trilogy about the land we're drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to love. With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors' blood and magic have flowed through generations-- and where her destiny awaits. Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan's directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O'Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives. When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he's three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package. Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself-- and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Iona's family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope-- and love-- alive" -- from publisher's web page.

The witches : Salem, 1692 / by Schiff, Stacy.;
Includes bibliographic references (pages 481-482) and index.The diseases of astonishment -- That old deluder -- The working of wonders -- One of you is a devil -- The wizard -- A suburb of hell -- Now they say there is above seven hundred in all -- In these hellish meetings -- Our case is extraordinary -- Published to prevent false reports -- That dark and mysterious season -- A long train of miserable consequences.It began in 1692, over an exceptionally raw Massachusetts winter, when a minister's daughter began to scream and convulse. It ended less than a year later, but not before 19 men and women had been hanged and an elderly man crushed to death. The panic spread quickly, involving the most educated men and prominent politicians in the colony. Neighbors accused neighbors, parents and children each other. Aside from suffrage, the Salem Witch Trials represent the only moment when women played the central role in American history. In curious ways, the trials would shape the future republic.

The Black Witch / by Forest, Laurie.;
Elloren Gardner is the granddaughter of the last prophesied Black Witch, Carnissa Gardner, who drove back the enemy forces and saved the Gardnerian people during the Realm War. But while she is the absolute spitting image of her famous grandmother, Elloren is utterly devoid of power in a society that prizes magical ability above all else. When she is granted the opportunity to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an apothecary, Elloren joins her brothers at the prestigious Verpax University to embrace a destiny of her own, free from the shadow of her grandmother's legacy. But she soon realizes that the university, which admits all manner of people --including the fire-wielding, winged Icarals, the sworn enemies of all Gardnerians --is a treacherous place for the granddaughter of the Black Witch. As evil looms on the horizon and the pressure to live up to her heritage builds, everything Elloren thought she knew will be challenged and torn away. Her best hope of survival may be among the most unlikely band of misfits --if only she can find the courage to trust those she's been taught to hate and fear.

Narrator: Kate Reading."[A] huge and sprawling tale of horror." —The New York Times Book Review Demonstrating once again her gift for spellbinding storytelling, Anne Rice makes real for us a great dynasty of four centuries of witches—a family given to poetry and incest, murder and philosophy, a family that over the ages is itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous, and seductive being called Lasher who haunts the Mayfair women.

The Witches' Tree : [electronic resource] : Agatha Raisin mystery series, book 28. by Beaton, M. C.; Larkin, Alison.;
Narrator: Alison Larkin.Molly hunched over the steering wheel. A breeze started to move the fog, which danced in swaying pillars in front of her headlights, somehow even more difficult to drive through than the previous thick fog. As she approached the village, through the shifting fog, she saw the lightning-blasted limbs of the witches' tree ... Driving home from a dinner party in the village of Sumpton Harcourt, Rory and Molly Harris, the new vicar and his wife, strain to see the road ahead-and then suddenly brake, screeching to a halt. Right in front of them, aglow in the headlights, a body hangs from a gnarled tree at the edge of town. An elderly spinster has been murdered-and the villagers are bewildered as to who would commit such a crime. Agatha Raisin rises to the occasion (a little glad for the excitement, to tell the truth, after a long run of lost cats and divorces on the books). But when two more murders follow the first, Agatha begins to fear for her reputation-and even her life. The village is a small and very private place, she finds. It even has its own coven of witches ...Requires OverDrive Listen (file size: N/A KB) or OverDrive app (file size: 186227 KB).
