The Truth Is Revealed in Blood
by Terrie Leigh Relf
We were gathered on Soola, home to the Sisterhood of the Blood Moon. This night, we would hold a special Seeing, and it was my sacred duty to stand sentry at the temple gates to ensure that only members of the Sisterhood could pass through. It was also my sacred duty to ensure that none would leave. Thousands of our years had passed since we would determine the fate of one of our own with The Ritual of Blood. Had she been the one behind the disembodiment of a Reverend Mother?

For thousands of Earth years, the Transgalactic Consortium has had a quiet interest in this planet and its inhabitants, the Haurans. While the Sisterhood of the Blood Moon works together with the Consortium and Haurans to maintain balance in the universe, the Blood Moon is fast approaching. The power of this moon reveals untold secrets . . . including a sacred covenant with the Mora Spiders. There is an ancient pact that needs to be honored—but at what cost and for whose purpose? The world may come to an end. But will there be a chance for a new beginning?
