“When a powerful magical artifact is stolen, a family of witches scrambles to locate it before the thief wreaks havoc on the world in the exciting fantasy novel, The Dagger (The Madigan Chronicles Book 1) by Marieke Lexmond. The Madigan family has been hiding a secret for centuries. They are keepers of a wand, one of four artifacts imbued with the power of the elements. Traditionally turned over to the oldest daughter for safekeeping, it has been handed down from mother to daughter for hundreds of years. However, when twins Tara and Lucy are in line to inherit the wand, their mother chooses Tara to be its caretaker, even though Lucy is a few minutes older. Angry, Lucy skirmishes with her mother, resulting in her banishment from the family and their home. Nearly six decades later, Lucy tracks down another one of the artifacts, killing the protector, and absconds with it. Now, Tara’s children and grandchildren must locate Lucy and retrieve the dagger before Lucy unleashes its power and unleashes catastrophic events upon the world and humankind. Can Tara and her family set aside their differences and unite to stop Lucy? Or are they already too late?
