Witch in the Woods
Witches of Grimm Prequel
by C.M. Adler
Genre: Dark Fantasy
"Once upon a time, there was a young girl who lived near an enchanted forest with her sister and her father. One day, while her father was gone selling firewood to the neighboring villages, her sister fell ill. Out of desperation, the young girl ventured into the forest for help and there she found a woman who gave her everything her soul desired...
Ambrosine lives next to an enchanted wood, which is no big deal when you know how to spot a magic hoax nest and trap nasty little night fairies.
And certainly no big deal when there is not even a witch in the woods.
When her little sister Rosaline encounters a strange new creature, she falls asleep and a dangerous fever dream threatens her life. With their mother dead and their father gone, Ambrosine gambles with the deepest desire of her soul as she fights to save her sister.
Based on the Grimm fairy tale, The Tale of the Rose, this is a highly entertaining and bone-chilling story of the first Witch in the Woods."

- Amazon Review
Once upon a time there was a girl who grew up near an enchanted wood. She was the delight of her father. The most precious gem of his heart.
And one evening in the spring, on her sixteenth birthday, she clutched her infant daughter to her chest and ran for her life.
A century later, a young girl named Maia found true love. Or at least she thought she had before her happily ever after turned into cries of, "Witch! Witch! Witch!" After an impulsive deal with a rumple goblin, Maia escapes the pitchforks and torches by taking her chances in the enchanted woods.
But there's a witch in the woods.
Cerelia hasn't seen another human soul for over one hundred years until a beaten and bloody pregnant girl stumbles into her magical garden. While fighting off witch-hunting villagers is one thing, dealing with rumple goblins is quite another. What will be the cost of saving Maia's child?
Mother is the first book in the Witches of Grimm series. A gripping fairytale retelling of Rapunzel's Mother Gothel, Mother is a magical story of love and sacrifice.
