The Shocking Truth about the Coven
But an informant has revealed that the Coven is blind. They have not had a witch gifted with seeing powers since the death of the Lilla Red Bird. The Coven claims to be the chosen group of the goddesses Aayse and Aata, yet they no longer possess magic.
And Lilla Red Bird's own nephew, Ryder, refuses to live with the Coven, though he is gifted with magic. Instead, he chooses to travel with a Baen, claiming that the Coven only tells lies.
Snow in the Witchlands
Heavy snow is expected in the Witchlands and across the Baen border as well.
Magical monsters made of the fallen snow are destroying villages in the Witchlands.
A Baen magician has been seen affecting the winds, causing them to spiral out of control.
The History of the Witchlanders and the Baen
The Witchlanders rely on the Witch covens, who are largely female due to their belief in the goddesses Aata and Aayse. The witches use their magic to tell the future, using a technique called boneshaking. Across the Baen border, magicians sing to wield their magic. However, it is illegal for women to use magic, so the magicians are solely male.

Falpian: Baen Hero of the Witchlands
He was tutored in singing and spells since he was little, with his twin brother Farien. however, when they both turned 16, they had still not awakened their magic, and their father began to think that they had not inherited the gift. Soon after, Farien died in a tragic accident. He was sent away to mourn his beloved brother, but in truth, his father had a plan to sacrifice him in order to start a war between the Bitterlands and the Witchlands. But during this time, Falpian discovered his affinity for magic and escaped his father's assassin.
Afterwards, he assisted Ryder in purging the Coven of its evil and preventing the Baen from waging war, saving thousands of lives.
