The blurb for Song of the Cicadas

Magic and madness collide in this Celtic reimagining of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Telltale Heart, which explores one girl’s grief over the loss of a loved one and how solving the mystery of his murder may help her put it all behind her.

“Lir is dead. Of that, I am certain. After all, hadn’t I just seen his ghost? Just as I am certain that his death was not an accident like the police led us to believe in the end, but the result of human malice. A human malice that he had come to me for help unmasking.”

Nature witches have always lived on the moor at the edge of County Kirk, where the land ends and the sea begins at the cliffs of Brigid. With their powers, they control the weather, keep the land healthy and whole and help the crops to grow by providing the right amounts of sun and rain, protect the village from harmful storms, and guide the change of the seasons from one to the next. The most powerful woman her family line has ever seen, Clare Sage has been calling down rainstorms and calming blizzards since she was in her cradle.

Yet her life is no fairy tale, and when her fiancé is killed, she vows to do whatever it takes to track down his murderer and make them pay. Even if that means reaching beyond the veil of the living. Only the land is fraught with danger, the village full of secrets, and the deeper she goes into her investigation, the more she begins to wonder if the killer is someone closer to home than she thought.
