"You'll be an amazing witch, Rosemary Hazel-Thorn, mark my words!"

The Land of Fae… where naiads swim the deep rivers and imps scuttle through the undergrowth. Deep in its heart lies a village in the dark woods known as Witchwood. Here are witches in many forms; Warrior, Healer, Master, Elemental. Some live for thousands of years, some live only as long as their 13 lives last.

Enter seventeen-year-old Standard Witch Rosemary Hazel-Thorn. As the daughter of prestigious Master Witch Ruby Thorn - who disappeared ten years before - Rosemary has locked away her past and settled down in a quiet cottage near the outskirts of Witchwood, working as a healer for the villagers even though her skills are limited at best. It’s said that Rosemary will grow to have powers beyond even those of Ruby, but that she doubts.

Across the realm thrives the quickly-growing city of Crescent Rune, Myristica Winter-Crescent, Halfling and daughter of the mayor, looks back on times past. Since her mother went missing Myristica finds herself unable to do even the most basic of spells, and her father, finally growing tired of his daughter’s failures, sends her to a far-off castle where her new fiancé resides.

When a short stroll leads Myristica to become lost in Witchwood - the very woods Wizards are warned to never enter – it’s only thanks to a certain spunky red-haired witch that she doesn’t fall prey to the forest’s whims. However, their meeting soon turns out to be more than a lucky twist of fate. A prophecy binds the two girls together, and with a new Dark Foe rising and witches being hunted down and killed, Myristica and Rosemary set out on a perilous journey to stop the destruction.

Even with their combined strength, their journey brings forth an onslaught of potentially deadly and uncontrollable powers that might end the quest before it even starts.

This is the first installment in the Witchwood series.
Any supposed typos (Fae, Faery, etc) are just Old English and should be not considered misspelling. Thanks to inktwister for the text, and myself for editing the photo!
Remember that this is an incomplete story, and a work-in-progress. If you are confused about any parts, remember that in a real, completed novel, you eventually get an explanation. So, don't complain about being confused about how a person is acting or a situation is playing out, because everything will be explained in the end. Thank you! :)

Wow, I really love this. Your descriptions feel so real. The only thing that I would change is that the dialouge between Rose and Thyme seemed a little forced. Please continue!

I love the concept, I'd love to read on if you continue this. The only part that didn't seem... right was the whole Sage thing. It didn't seem like she really tried, nor did it seem like Thyme was upset about her not being able to heal her friend. Other than that, I love this. I hope you continue this :)

Superb! Great descriptions, you make the reader feel as if they are right there. Plenty of action but not so much that you didn't set the story line. Now get busy- Only another 80,000 words like those and you get published :)
