Wyrdwood Home -
≡ Menu

The magickal residents of Wyrdwood live normal lives, work hard, fall in love,
raise children, and murder one another, just like the rest of us.

Wyrdwood, Oregon. Purple people—those with magick in their blood—live side-by-side with normal human neighbors. Some humans know. Some don't. Some would persecute them if they knew the truth.

Wyrdwood provides a safe haven where the hidden races can blend in. Ancient wards may camouflage their mythic ancestry, but they can't change who they are at their cores.

“The town of Wyrdwood is practically a character along with the secondary characters.” —Nancy on Goodreads (4 stars)
