The Book of Bixby: Demons Calling

By Max MacKenzie All Rights Reserved ©

Action / Horror

Introduction

Witches live by a simple, five-point creed, written centuries ago by The First Coven

A witch must master her magic.

A witch must hide her true nature.

A witch must face the forces of darkness.

A witch must slay wizards, whoever they be.

A witch must chronicle her story, so that others may learn.

It’s that last one that’s relevant to you.

My name is Haley Bixby.

I’m a witch.

If you’re reading this, you likely are too. I can tell you now that people have a lot of preconceived notions about witches. They think either of ugly hags with crooked noses and pointy hats, or cute, bookish schoolgirls with magic wands. They think we’re all about bubbling cauldrons and turning people into toads.

But in real life, witches are more than cackling broom jockeys, am I right? We’re warriors, trained in as much martial skill as magical. We protect the waking world from the boogie-woogies that would eat them alive if we weren’t watching their back. It’s a pretty crappy job most of the time.

After you’ve been knee-deep in zombies, goblins, werewolves, and good old fashion jerks with guns, you have to write it all down in a journal.

Your book. Written by your own hand. That’s right. No computers. Get ready for some cramps.

Someday, Witchlings will read your story, just as you’re reading mine. Recorded here are events and insights from not only my witchly activities, but my personal life as well. The idea is to give you every chance to learn from my mistakes, my choices.

My life.

You’ll likely find that my book is more eventful than most. You’ve probably already heard stories about me. I assure you, most have been exaggerated. Here you’ll find the complete truth. No embellishments. No revisions. No excuses.

Enjoy.

Deleted User: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

Nichole P. Conard: The characters are well created and pull you along through the story. The plot is well thought out, with some interesting turns. I was unsure what was going to happen, several times in the story, which is a grand point, as who wants to know they have figured out the story correctly...once they ge...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully! I loved how I was able to imagine everything so explicitly because the writing was simple and easily comprehensive with a touch of complexity somewhere b...

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless. A few missing periods, and a few missing ending quotation marks, but not enough to take away from the story.Keep going. Add more detail to your future stories and ...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Marimar Amieva: I strongly agree with all the reviews below. The story is definitely good and original and I love how the characters represent something diffefent and are relatable as to people's personality traits. I hope the author decides to write a sequel because Red and Blue just left me wishing for more. C...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me. There are a few grammatical and spelling errors I came across and at times I found it difficult to imagine some things which the author is trying to convey, but o...

Beau Bayot: I like the way the story is told and really engages the reader. In the daily life of a B17 Bomber Pilot that just happens to be a commander of an air-group, along with the hassles of keeping a bomber group running in peak performance during WW2. Banner should also consider himself lucky both at h...
