A Balance of Evil
For Irene Cunningham, a 20th century woman struggling to make ends meet, the job at the Santa Monica DA's office was the final chance to prove things to not only herself but her family as well. For Melissa, her twin sister, it means that Irene's eventual success will bring a halt to the constant family feuds and the bickering between Irene and her father. To the twins, the tale of their families' ancestral struggle is nothing more than a bedtime story they had heard a thousand times, but when a member of the Brethren attacks Irene, they both discover that to survive, they must learn to embrace the archaic power of the Coven. The two young women find they must trust ancient rituals that leave them questioning themselves, their spiritual beliefs, and understanding of their own existence. With an insight only a veteran of serious tragedy could have, P.G. Barnett portrays the struggles of this special family with such skill, introspection, and passion that it brings home to the reader the true meaning of the ties that bind.
