The Glendale Witch
The only child of adoptive parents, Celeste McAllister leads a somewhat sheltered life in Glendale, California, but events take a bizarre turn on the night her pet iguana starts talking. The reptile reveals that Celeste’s name is actually Celestial Star Needfyre and that she’s the last in an ancient line of witches. Known as The Guardians, these powerful women stood for thousands of years between our world and environmental havoc until they all suddenly vanished.
With the help of a theatrical fortuneteller, a passionate Satyr and the garage band from downstairs, Celeste must journey through strange, elemental worlds to save everything she loves and to free The Guardians from the dark creature holding them captive. In a final magical confrontation, she must choose between the fate of our planet and the unexpected bond she feels for the demon who, like Celeste, has spent a lifetime searching for love and acceptance.
Mysterious caretakers of magical realms, underworld ferrymen, unrequited love and impossible choices embellish this tale of a young woman coming to terms with her unwilling role in a global battle against evil. Poignant environmental issues faced by our world today make this story as timely as it is entertaining.
