The First Secret (Hidden Portals trilogy Book 2) Some secrets are best left buried. All Iris ever wanted was to have a peaceful life. Living mostly in solitude, she found joy in helping young girls accept the beauty of song and dance. She never expected her visions, inherited from generation to generation in her family, to take her on a journey where everything she’s known is in question, including her existence. If she is not a human witch, then what is she? Fern spent his entire life trying to do what’s right for his people. The Fae, banished to their own realm, have been slowly dying but agreeing to help the deranged king almost costs him his life. Now he must follow a witch, who isn’t supposed to exist, to the depths of hell. Those like her were hunted down centuries ago. So, why is he willing to do anything, to make sure she stays alive?
