Witch & Curse[edit]

The five novels depict a family feud between a coven of witches called the Cahors and a coven of warlocks called the Deveraux. In Witch, Holly Cathers, the main character is the lone survivor of the rafting trip her family took with her best friend, small cat who is deaf. Strange incidents occur, such as strange visions and dreams. Eventually, Holly realizes she is a witch and that she carries the soul of Isabeau of the Cahor house. Holly belongs to the Cahor house and reveals this to Amanda. It appears, Nicole already knows about witchcraft. When Holly's aunt dies, they are left in the custody of her uncle, Richard. Nicole is performing as Juliet in the play and suddenly a fire starts. Holly and her cousins discover that Michael and his son, Eli are behind this. Michael is a warlock of House Deveraux. He had an affair with Holly's aunt, Marie-Claire Anderson. Jeraud (Jer), Michael's other son attempts to stop him with his girlfriend and his two best friends. Jer and Holly have a strange connection and before at a party they had almost fallen into bed with one another.
