Taïga is now a teenager, still living with Granny and Old Missy in the Bayou. Her half-brother, Rowan, is also staying at Bayou Oaks Mansion since the birth of his brother Frost, 4 years ago. Leonardo keeps up the illusion of Shasta still being alive*, nourishing the image of a mentally fragile and self-occupied mother, but Taïga can’t shake off the feeling that something is wrong. But being a teenager takes up 100% of her time, leaving little space for worries. She’s singing in a band (IDC), riding and taking care of the old horse Duke when she’s not studying or fighting with Rowan.
As Taïga’s 15th birthday approaches, Granny gets more and more worried about her daughter, Shasta. Will she miss out on yet another birthday? Even though this year is crucial, as they are supposed to initiate Taïga to her powers as a witch? Maybe it will hurt Shasta to much to see her daughter take possession of her magical heritage, herself not being a witch anymore?**
And what about Taïga’s engagement? Granny has avoided the problem, not wanting to tell her granddaughter that she is already promised to someone. But now the time has come…
