Molly expected to become human as she leapt through the air. Instead she stayed on all four feet. All four paws. Her curse was getting worse.

Why has Molly suddenly lost control of her curse?

Molly never believed in magic, until she was cursed to become a hare every time a dog barked. Now she's friends with a whole team of magical creatures all searching for a way to free her from her curse.

Can the friends find the powerful Promise Keeper, controller of curses, and overcome the dark magic threatening them all?

Enter a world of amazing adventure, extraordinary friendship and brilliant magic in the second book of Lari Don's breathtaking Spellchasers trilogy.
