Sylvia and Mason Blackvale are trying to live their lives in Vesper Cove alongside their mother, Tia Gates-Blackvale. Just as if they can enjoy life, they will soon learn secrets about their family history that could tear Vesper Cove apart. When Sylvia is about to turn sixteen, she receives a mysterious gift from her and Mason’s father, Reese. However, their father disappeared over ten years ago. Wondering the gift is their one physical evidence that their father is still alive, Sylvia, Mason, and their mother uncover the gift is a picture of the Blackvale crest and a note written by Reese. In the note they discover Reese needs to be found and that are greater dark forces at play, yet in order to find him they need to reverse the Witchfall that stricken the Blackvale coven.
Desperate to search for answers, Sylvia and Mason are met by the local bookstore owner, Desmond Krieg, who gives them clues of what they seek. Together, the Blackvale siblings learn that Witchfall is a forbidden curse to befall on a coven of witches. Stunned, Sylvia and Mason deduct that they are witches and that their father was a powerful warlock until the curse changed everything. To find their father, they first must reverse the Witchfall. Krieg informs the siblings that in order to reverse the curse they must either convince or kill the Order of the Seven—a group of seven witches and warlocks that cast the Witchfall spell on the Blackvale coven. However, things take a turn when Sylvia and Mason uncover their newfound mentor; Krieg is actually a witch hunter. To reverse the curse to restore their powers and family legacy, the siblings must train like witch hunters to destroy the Order any way they can if they have a chance to save their missing father.
However while Sylvia and Mason does their best to reverse the Witchfall spell, their personal lives with certain relationships get tested.

And as for the other dark forces, they will do whatever they can to protect the people they care about as the serene town of Vesper Cove will be rocked like never before.

This was an idea I have been floating around for the past year and had to find some sort of grounding. I needed to focus a series on a central female protagonist I’m a huge supernatural fan and most of the inspiration came from Charmed, Buffy, and Supernatural. I really wanted to focus an idea on this concept that what if these young witch siblings has lost their power and their family magic; and the only way they can restore their powers and break the curse is to be trained by witch hunter.
