By Cory Putman Oakes

In the wake of the Second Inquisition, modern day witches live in witch-only communities called Havens. Sixteen-year-old Macie and her mother, Aubra, are grifters, making their living by traveling between the Havens, robbing them, then using Aubra’s power to erase the evidence. Macie is sick of stealing and wants out. But her mother convinces her to stay and pull one last heist – the last job they’ll ever have to do – in the most famous and mysterious Haven of them all: Witchtown.
