Elena bears the mark of the wit'ch upon her palm, the crimson stain that testifies to an awesome power of unimaginable potency: wild, seductive, difficult to control. Only a mistress of blood magick can stand against the foul minions and all-corrupting evil of the Dark Lord. But Elena is not yet the mistress of her magick. Protected by an ageless warrior and a band of renegades, she quests for a lost city where prophecies speak of a mystic tome that holds the key to the Dark Lord's defeat. But if the Dark Lord finds her first, Elena will become his most fearsome weapon . . .

Praise For Wit'ch Storm: Book Two of the Banned and the Banished

"Wit'ch Fire grabs at your heart and tears a little hole, then tears another, and another - a brutal and beautiful ride. I can't put the book down!"

"I loved every page of this book . . . [Clemens's] imagery is so brilliant that every scene comes instantly to life, and while everything seems immediately familiar, the reader soon learns to expect a new surprise with every page. And just as you think he can't possibly come up with anything else, a new character bursts upon the tale, bringing along a whole new level of sorcery!"

"Full of violence, magical pyrotechnics, and black-hearted villains."
