Dive into the secret, ancient, powerful world of two New Orleans families, the Deschanels and the Sullivans...
From USA Today bestselling paranormal author Sarah M. Cradit comes The Storm and the Darkness. This novel is the first installment to the bestselling witches family saga, The House of Crimson & Clover, and is the starting point for readers.
Ana Deschanel made a terrible mistake. The only chance of protecting the other people involved is to flee New Orleans, the only home she has ever known, for the quiet solitude of Summer Island.
Summer Island, Maine (population 202) is not the tranquil escape Ana imagined. The locals are distant and cold, especially her neighbor, the reclusive veterinarian Jonathan St. Andrews. Her only lifeline is the kind but odd caretaker, Alex Whitman. Showing up at all the right moments, he warns her she is completely unprepared for a Maine winter. As the first seasonal storm approaches to whispers of an island shutdown, Ana realizes she may soon be cut off from the rest of the world.
After a surprising encounter with Jonathan's brother, Finn, Ana finds herself braving the storm to return something to him. Unprepared for the Maine storm, she slips and falls onto the jagged rocks along the shore. The St. Andrews brothers find her in the nick of time, but she remains unconscious. As the storm worsens, the St. Andrews brothers learn there are other, more sinister forces at work closer than they ever imagined.
With no help from the outside world, they must find a way to protect themselves from both the storm, and the growing darkness that looms across the island.The Saga of Crimson & Clover:A sprawling dynasty. An ancient bloodline. A world of magic and mayhem.
