Deep in the North American forests lurks an animal spirit known as the Grishla. The Grishla is so ancient it pre-dates the human race by several million years, and it is so powerful and reclusive only very insightful witches know of its existence.
Five hundred years ago, the Dwanake tribe possessed such witches. Drunk on their own power and arrogance, these witches attempted to enslave the Grishla. Enraged, the creature began hunting and killing the Dwanake.
Desperate, the tribal elders ordered experiments on the Dwanake children to create the ultimate witch to defend their people.
Sixteen-year-old Sean Wolf is that witch.
But Sean is so powerful that he cannot control his own magic. Will he be able to defeat the Grishla or will he destroy himself and everyone that he loves?
Sean is a sixteen year old boy who is having trouble at home. His mother believes he is practising witchcraft after his dad is almost burned alive. Little do they know that while Sean can perform spells, it was actually something else that set the fire. A terrible animal spirit called the Grishla has cursed Sean's entire family and the tribe he is descended from. Sent to live with his grandmother Elizabeth, Sean is surprised when she goes easy on him, but she has secrets of her own, including the fact that Sean may be the Ultra Witch and the only one with a shot of stopping the Grishla.
This was a great story. Sean is your typical moody teen, but he's also very smart and struggles to make friends. Definitely a unique story and one that can be enjoyed by adults and young adults. It was well written and the characters were great even if they did have the annoying habit of having full conversations with themselves out loud. I really enjoyed the story and would definitely recommend it.
