It was a wonderful harvest celebration with all the village clothed in their best attire. The children appeared particularly happy traipsing through the fields, white helium balloons wound tightly ’round their wrists, pockets filled with candies and the last of autumn’s fruit. We cheered as the marching band circled ’round, announcing that the feast was about to begin. Giving thanks for this sumptuous meal, we looked skyward, knowing that winter would become cold and colder still, our fields soon barren. And then, the earth shifted, splitting open beneath our feet.

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?
