Shadowblade Max can’t catch a break! Though she managed to avert one apocalyptic confrontation, there are more on the horizon. Part of what makes Max such a mesmerizing character is her sense of honor, even when under the yoke of magical slavery. For the latest in the Horngate Witches series, the talented Francis splits the action between Max’s adventures and those of Alexander back in Horngate.
