Never ever betray a Black Witch
Betrayed by her only friend and badly wounded, Annis continues her quest for revenge on her demon enemies and their dangerous allies. Can she survive the deadly streets of Los Angeles alone?
For a split second I'd seen through her true eyes. Not the seductive brown eyes I'd taken from her but the spiritual eyes of her soul. Ashley saw Sonja, and the world, through the beautiful window of love. She didn't see the dark side of everyone and everything as I did. With Ashley's ghost I'd witnessed the bright colors of compassion and felt the soothing warmth of emotion. For a moment I'd wanted to freeze time and live inside her world forever. A world without bitter hatred for my countless enemies and eternal scorn for my own wretched mother. I imagined a life of love and it didn't repulse me. Then I remembered how Amelia, Regina, and now Sonja had all inserted their sharp knives into my back and twisted the blade. The warm light within my heart died and the cold bottomless darkness returned. No more dreams of a life that could never be. I was Black Annis and nothing could change my fate.
