In a world where magic and witchcraft are real and accepted, Dean Winchester is the first-born son to the two most powerful Witch families. It had always been assumed he would be very powerful. Unfortunately, all witches need a familiar to help them channel their excess magic, to avoid causing harm to themselves or the surrounding area when using their magic.
Dean has gone twenty-eight years without finding his familiar. He has watched both his brothers find, and fall in love with theirs. That is until he feels the call, the connection to his familiar.
He assumes the man, Castiel, is his familiar. When they meet, his familiar in cat form, Dean is shocked to find that the connection isn’t as strong as it had been. The next night, a different cat comes to him, but still, the connection isn’t exactly as it was. Even though it is unheard of, Dean assumes Cas can just change into two different cats. It doesn’t take long for Dean to discover the truth
Can he get his family to accept and believe that this isn’t a scam? Can the family come together before danger strikes? Can they beat the Grand Coven?
The death of Jimmy and Castiel Shurley’s parents grants them a modest inheritance and, more importantly, freedom to make their own choices. After hunting for the perfect house, they find what they’re looking for in an old farmhouse in the mountains of upstate New York: nice neighbors not too close, the beauty of nature surrounding them, and solitude, save for each other. The isolation is both a blessing and a curse; Castiel has pined for his brother since puberty, but incest is forbidden and homosexuality is taboo, and he knows if he speaks about his feelings he’ll lose his brother as a best friend and destroy their careers as children’s book authors as well.
Fortunately, Castiel finds a new friend in Dean, the strange man who hangs around their property. Sure, it’s a weird, especially since Dean refuses to enter the house or even meet Jimmy, but Dean is gregarious, beautiful, kind, and brilliantly knowledgeable about the natural wonders surrounding them. Castiel isn’t the best at assessing people but he’s absolutely sure there’s no harm in Dean…
