Angela and Lillian Tremblay return to Summerhaven, New Hampshire after 16 long years away. The sisters are forced to face old, small-town secrets, as well as forgotten childhood memories that float just beneath the surface of consciousness.
One winter's day, Angela comes home to find her dear, sweet Lillian dead in the basement. The police are content her hanging is a suicide and refuse to pursue other possibilities. But the town's residents know the gruesome facts about the house. It was once the dwelling of the Summerhaven Witch, a woman known for killing children and bathing in their blood.
A tortured Angela meets a local psychic who promises to help her discover the identity of Lil's murderer. Now Angela must decide if she is willing to risk it all and contact the spirits for answers.
When a deceased teenage girl appears and connects Angela's past to her present, the truth threatens to push Angela from the cliffs of sanity. Will the house's dark secrets remain buried in the shadows forever, or will the dead come forth to exhume Angela's memories when she uses the Ouija board and speaks her incantations?
Secrets can scar. Memories can kill. Incantations is a surreal psychological tale that examines the tragedy of suicide, death, and sinister family secrets.

What would have made Incantations better?
I never comment on books, but this was just too much.The story was too convoluted and elaborate considering the length. It had too many things thrown in for shock value that didn't do anything to enhance the story itself. I had a hard time keeping all the female characters, this weird intersecting and ever-changing lineage, and the timeline straight. There is so much incest, rape, and baby killing in this story, it ceases to be shocking and just becomes eye-rollingly gross. Like "great, another person boinking their parent..." I wanted the author to pick one idea and go with that, rather than shoving what felt like several potential story lines all into one novella. Is it about witches? Ghosts? Pick one. How many villains do we need? It started as a good creepy story and just spiraled out of control from there. Too many cliches.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dustin Davis?
This narrator was *the worst*. He sounds like we just woke him up from a nap. He mumbles in places, licks his lips, and mispronounces words.
"Wan", which he pronounced "wane", and "wanton", which he pronounced "won-ton", like a wonton dumpling, just to name a few.
