When the coven discover an old portrait of Maeve’s mother might hold a valuable clue to help them defeat the fae host, they travel to London to uncover its secrets.

Under the bright city lights. Maeve discovers more about the mysterious origins of her powers, and one by one her guys open up about the dark parts of themselves they’ve kept hidden. In this most desperate of times, every member of the Briarwood coven must confront their own demons in order to unleash the full potential of their magic.

Praise for The Castle of Water and Woe

"All I can say is "Wow!" Ms. Holmes floored me in a good way. Maeve and her boys are still together and doing their best to defeat the fae King Daigh. The boys are facing their pasts, and Maeve finally admits to her feelings. I highly recommend this to any paranormal suspense lover as well as those who enjoy reverse harems."
"Wow, I love these books. Fascinating, well written characters and plots with magic, mayhem, and unexpected twists. Fantastic – I can't wait for the next book in this series!"
"Once again Maeve and her boys are up to their witchy necks in trouble. Add to that Maeve's little sister, Kelly, has come for a visit. It’s not easy hiding her unusual relationship from Kelly, figuring out what happened to the fae, and coming up with a plan to save the world. This series keeps getting better and better!"
