When the powerful witch Mother Malkin makes her return, after Gregory thought he'd defeated her years ago, Thomas is forced to confront her and slay her once and for all. But things aren't as easy they seem when he befriends a witch girl who convinces him that not all witches are bad. Will Thomas succeed in sending Malkin back to the grave? Or will he find himself putting his trust in the wrong people?
