Susie Moloney: The Thirteen

Join Susie in celebrating the launch of her newest novel The Thirteen!

The Witches of Eastwick meets Desperate Housewives in Susie Moloney's The Thirteen, her new and long-awaited novel. 

Haven Woods is suburban heaven, a great place to raise a family. It's close to the city, quiet, with great schools and its own hospital right up the road. The crime rate is practically non-existent, unless you count the odd human sacrifice, dismemberment, animal attack, demon rape, and blood atonement. 

When Paula Wittmore goes home to Haven Woods to care for a suddenly ailing mother, she brings her daughter and a pile of emotional baggage. She also brings the last chance for twelve of her mother's closest frenemies, who like to keep their numbers at thirteen. And her daughter, young, innocent, is a worthy gift to the darkness.

A circle of friends will support you through bad times. 
A circle of witches can drag you through hell.
