The Druid Sisters of the Gallicenial: A Goddess Chronicles Novella (The Goddess Chronicles)
Carmen and Clarissa were as close as sisters, but Maleficium, the practice of dark magic, tempted one. She saw power in the shadows. Who would the Celtic Goddess Brigit choose as the Keeper of the Flame?
The Celtic Goddess Brigid tasked nineteen nuns with tending her sacred flame. So long as the flame burned, the veil between this world and the Otherworld would remain intact.
Each night, a nun took a turn tending the flame. On the twentieth night, the Goddess herself would return to keep watch. Nuns were selected based on years of service, their dedication to the Druid order, and their use of protective Light Magic in order to maintain the veil.
