Hannah is an Elemental witch, one of the three types of Witches: Caster, Elemental, and Blood. Last month or so, she and her former girlfriend were caught up between three casters and a blood witch, resulting in Hannah getting hurt. Hannah and her former girlfriend, Veronica, broke up publicly. Both girls are a part of the same coven and have known each other since forever, but Hannah felt betrayed by Veronica, who did not help her.
Hannah apologizes for bailing on Morgan, and they make up. Hannah finds out from Cal, the new guy at work, that Nolan (a regular person) threw the brick at her house and she tells Detective Archer. She and Gemma are in the car after Hannah apologized to Morgan, when they are run off the road by an SUV. Gemma almost loses her leg, and they almost both die but they survive. Hannah tells the truth to Gemma despite it being treason to do so, and goes on another date with Morgan. On the way back from her date, she sees a fire. Her father was caught in it, and at the hospital Hannah finds out that Morgan is a blood witch. She had accidentally dated a Witch Hunter and had to flee.
The Village Inquisitor is a NPC who arrives every week on . You first meet the Inquisitor on the way to Witch Hill on the first of the first week.

The Inquisitor asks you if you know of anything to use as \"evidence of witchcraft. Or the undead. Or any other cult stuff.\" You have to choose between:
The book follows Hannah, a young Elemental witch living in Salem, Massachusetts. In the beginning of the book she is navigating her relationship with her ex-girlfriend and fellow Elemental witch Veronica after a recent publicly messy breakup. They are both concerned that a Blood Witch, a witch who can manipulate bodies using blood, that they got mixed up with after a recent trip to New York might be after them for revenge.
First, we learn deep into the book that the nameless Blood Witch from New York City is a total antagonist red herring. She never re-enters the story, which makes me confused about why the early book mentions her so much. Instead, the real antagonists behind the creepy goings-on in Salem are WITCH HUNTERS, which seems like an important world-building concept that should have been introduced much earlier. Also, the witch hunters are not only a threat to Veronica and Hannah, but apparently to all witches everywhere in the entire world.
\"Hannah's a witch, but not the kind you're thinking of. She's the real deal, an Elemental with the power to control fire, earth, water, and air. But even though she lives in Salem, Massachusetts, her magic is a secret she has to keep to herself. If she's ever caught using it in front of a Reg (read: non-witch), she could lose it. For good. So, Hannah spends most of her time avoiding her ex-girlfriend (and fellow Elemental Witch) Veronica, hanging out with her best friend, and working at the Fly by Night Cauldron selling candles and crystals to tourists, goths, and local Wiccans.
While the pair attempt to smoke out the Blood Witch at a house party, Hannah meets Morgan, a cute new ballerina in town. But trying to date amid a supernatural crisis is easier said than done, and Hannah will have to test the limits of her power if she's going to save her coven and get the girl, especially when the attacks on Salem's witches become deadlier by the day.\"

As a teenager, I moved on to the late-Nineties variety of witch, who had the power to save themselves from the dangers and vulnerabilities of being an adolescent girl. It was a power I could only dream of when, as a teenager, an unknown man tried to get me into his car as I was walking to school.
As well as a conduit for pain, defiance and female power, the witch is also a healing figure. In recent years witches and their covens have been reclaimed to express a spiritual side of feminism, one that feels more comfortable with the maiden, the mother and the crone rather than the father, the son and the holy spirit. The witchy sensibilities of tarot, horoscopes and crystals offer a form of healing and bonding, that feels more gender-inclusive.
The most famous witch trial in history happened in Salem, Massachusetts, during the winter and spring of 1692-1693. When it was all over, 141 suspects, both men and women, were tried as witches. Nineteen were executed by hanging. One was pressed to death by heavy stones.
Witchcraft is usually associated with the power of nature, such as medicinal and poisonous plants, or rains and floods. People accused of witchcraft are said to be able to control natural events such as storms or droughts.
Unlike traditional healers, witch doctors use spells. Spells are words or phrases that are suspected of having magical powers. Casting a spell to be wealthy or lucky in love is an example of witchcraft.
Why do some people believe in witchcraft Using the example of the love spell, some people may believe that the spell is the thing that brought them happiness. However, some people who are unlucky in love may believe that someone is using witchcraft against them.
For Americans, that number was even higher: 21 percent. Most people do not believe in magical witches, of course. Sometimes, though, normally logical people blame supernatural powers for their misfortune.
Today, witch trials occur all over the world. Organizations like the United Nations and Stepping Stones Nigeria have found that the number of witch trials around the world is increasing. They are almost always violent, and sometimes they are deadly.
When people get sick, witchcraft is sometimes seen as the cause. This is especially true in places with poor medical care or few educational opportunities. Although belief in witchcraft is not limited to the developing world, witch trials occur more frequently there.
Dozens of people have been killed in Papua New Guinea, the eastern half of the tropical island of New Guinea in the Pacific Ocean. In January 2009, a young girl was burned alive, accused of being a witch and infecting men with HIV/AIDS. A month later, a father and son were also burned to death after being accused of witchcraft.
In India, landowning women are sometimes accused of witchcraft. Neighbors of the suspected witch may begin collecting firewood on which the suspect will burn. The women, often older widows, are scared enough to leave their homes. Their neighbors then take their land.
People who look different are often the victims of witch trials. In Tanzania, albino people are in danger of being killed for their skin and body parts. Since 2007, more than 50 albinos have been killed for ritual use. Tanzanian witch-doctors believe the arms, legs, skin, and hair of albinos have special magic in them, and that their use will bring their clients good luck in love, life, and business.
President Yahya Jammeh of The Gambia believes he is being targeted by witches. According to Amnesty International, as many as 1,000 Gambians accused of witchcraft have been arrested and tortured on orders from the president. At least two people are dead. President Jammeh also claims to be able to cure AIDS on Thursdays and fires doctors who disagree with him.
People project their fears onto unfortunate victims. There has never been a proven case of witchcraft in all of human history. On the other hand, there are thousands of victims of witch hunts. People accused of witchcraft, if they survive their ordeal at all, often end up with ruined lives. In the end, it is the witch hunters who should be feared more than the people whom they accuse of witchcraft.
In 1997, the government of South Africa decided to do something about witchcraft fear in that country. They began an educational campaign in schools and workplaces about science, medicine, and HIV/AIDS. They also sent police to work with traditional healers and village chiefs. The police told them if they accuse a person of witchcraft and that person ends up being killed, the healers and village chiefs will be held responsible.
Soccer WitchesIn 1992, the Ivory Coast sports minister hired witch doctors to help support his country against Ghana in soccer. Ivory Coast (now called Cte dIvoire) won the African Nations Cup that year.
Does She Weigh the Same as a DuckThe town of Oudewater, Netherlands, used to sell certificates to suspected witches. These certificates \"officially\" proved the women were heavier than air (according to their town scales) and as a result were unable to fly. Women who couldn't fly were less likely to be considered witches.Women would travel long distances to purchase these certificates, since the usual test of whether a person was a witch was to t
