Season of the Witch is a YA fantasy series by April L Wood, about four elemental witches named Winter Rose-Thorne, Spring Widow-Tears, Summer Wormwood, and Autumn Devil-Claw, who hail from the four quarters of the world, but have been chased from their respective homelands by Witch Hunters. The clans find refuge in a small city in the USA, where they carry out their traditions, attend school with humans, and fall under the spell of romance. While they’ve escaped persecution, they can’t outrun their otherworldy problems, and other personal teenage dramas.
Season of the Witch begins with Winter’s Curse
When High Priestess Iris Rose-Thorne bets her granddaughter’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.
She finds safety with Turmeric of the Wormwood clan. His eagerness to protect her warms her frozen heart. But her love for him defies the Segregation Curse of Old, cast by the Elders to preserve ancient clan bloodlines.
Can they find a way around the Segregation Curse of Old to be together?
And with time running out as the Winter Solstice nears, will Winter be able to reverse the curse on her womb? Or will she agree to her fate and remain barren?

The Story Continues with Spring in Summerland…
When a teen air witch named Spring visits her grandparents for some much needed breathing space from her smothering parents, she’s once again stifled, but this time by the troubled Spirit Witches of Elderberry Thicket who shadow her.
After a chance encounter at her grandparents’ Ostara celebration, romance blooms between Spring and Oak of the Wormwood clan. Love is in the air and Spring is filling up, unlike Oak who at times seems to be holding his breath. Why does the one person she wants around keep his distance?
Spring doesn’t want to meddle in the affairs of the dead, but as her ties grow closer to the witches of Springfield, her initial denial and reluctance transforms into a fierce determination to liberate their loved ones from the Valley of the Dead. As this Spiritist digs deeper to uncover the mystery of why the Spirit Witches aren’t crossing over, she’s ensnared into a web of dark family secrets that span the ages, threatening the innocent if exposed. Except, even angels cast shadows… is Spring protecting the right person?
Young love will blossom and old skeletons will be revealed. Can Spring Widow-Tears deliver the Spirit Witches to the Summerland? Or will she fail to meet her destiny as a Spiritist, sealing her own final fate?
