The Briar Stag –

A Wight Christmas –


Sammie Holloway just lost her Momma and Aunties while they worked to banish the rotten guardian of the East Tennessee Valley. Now, without the power holding things in check, some new evil has flooded in. The Dark things from the edges of the town have started creeping in, but only to escape what’s coming. She struggles against this tide until an old foe, Jim Wight, approaches her door one night with an offer.
