by Carissa Andrews
September 15, 2020
278 pages
Genre: Urban Fantasy Suspense, Paranormal Academy
Nestled in the woods of Windhaven, Blackwood Manor waits to unleash a dark and deadly legacy…
When Autumn Blackwood shows up at Windhaven Academy for the Witching Stick Orientation, she hopes to find out what dormant powers she could possibly possess to have been accepted to the elite supernatural school. Instead, the academy is in chaos as everyone frantically hunts for two missing girls.
But as school begins with Autumn no closer to figuring out her powers, strange occurrences start to follow her everywhere. Even at home, Blackwood Manor keeps many secrets, and Autumn can’t escape its haunting past.
New friends urge her to learn more about her family’s history in order to unlock her powers and make sense of what’s happening at Blackwood Manor, but Autumn’s not so sure. Once an accident brings Autumn face-to-face with death, however, she realizes her gifts are tied to a legacy that can either save or doom them all…
Fans of Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House, Joe Hill’s Locke & Key, or MR Forbes’ Necromancer: The Complete Series will love The Windhaven Witches.

Excerpt One 
“Right,” he nods. “I suppose you’ll need the Wi-Fi password. It’s YBG0n3. Wanna write that down?” 

“Nah, I’ll just add it to my phone now. Hang on,” I say, taking my phone out of my pocket. 

As soon as I get it entered and logged in, I lean against the edge of the breakfast bar, unable to truly grasp the sheer size of this place. I mean, I knew my Dad had a big house, but for some reason, I didn’t realize that translated into having money. It’s weird how when you’re a kid, you don’t think of those things. But now, it’s like moving in with a secret superhero or something. 

“Our last name isn’t really Wayne, is it?” I blurt out. 

Dad pulls up short and snickers. “Ha—no. Blackwood’s as good as it gets, sweetie.” 

“Just checking,” I say, grinning sheepishly. 

The two of us stand in awkward silence for a moment before I crack open the Redbull and take a sip. 

“So,” I start. 

“So—” Dad repeats. 

“I guess, I’ll head back to my room and get situated.” 

“Of course. Yeah. You do what you need to do,” Dad nods. 

I nod and cast a tiny wave his direction. “Thanks, Dad. See you in the morning.” 

“Night, sweetie,” he says. I can tell he’d like me to stay a bit longer, though, because his smile doesn’t quite reach his eyes. 

I make my way out into the entryway and down the hallway leading to my room. Suddenly, the same cold sensation from earlier flashes over me. I shudder and turn to look over my shoulder. 

This old house must be super drafty. 

I turn back around, taking a few more steps, when I swear I hear a woman’s voice whisper, “Welcome home, Autumn.”
