Whispers in the Waters
by Sarah Chislon
A feline companion, a dash of magic, fae, and family secrets. What could go wrong?
Gently-bred herbalist Jessa Caldwell knows the rules. Ladies don’t shame their families. Ladies don’t confront Otherworldly threats. Ladies certainly don’t admit some taint of the fae has touched their souls—unless they wish to find themselves confined to an Institution.
So she hides amongst her plants and sketches until a threat to her beloved aunt forces her from the comfort of home to a town perilously near an Otherworldly Crossing.
To protect her aunt and the townsfolk she comes to care for, she must uncover the individual responsible for a series of attacks, but to find this saboteur will require embracing the part of herself she fears most. In a world where Vigilists lock up fae-touched mortals, Jessa must decide if she’s willing to risk exposing her true nature to defend those she loves.
