Teen ice witch Winter Rose-Thorne barely escapes witch hunters before finding herself in danger once again, after a children’s broom flying contest goes terribly awry… 
 
When High Priestess Rose-Thorne bets her granddaughter Winter’s womb in a broom flying contest and loses, Winter wonders where the real danger lies: from the witch hunters she fled from the far north, or her shady grandmother.

Given until Yule to reverse the outcome, the teen ice witch discovers her inner earth magic and finds solace with friends, including Turmeric of the Wormwood clan. Turmeric warms Winter’s frozen heart, but their love defies the Segregation Curse of Old, cast by the Elders to preserve ancient bloodlines. Can they find a way around the curse to be together?
And with time running out as the Winter Solstice nears, will she be able to reverse the outcome of the broom flying contest? Or will she agree to her fate and remain barren?
