Summary: This is the second book of three. It starts out 12 years after the first book and it is telling the story of Ezra Fier's need for revenge. Tragedy after tragedy hits the Fier family again. Ezra's daughter Abigail is killed by the ghost of Hester Goode. Jane Fier drowns in the family well. Finally, Ezra Fier gets trampled by a horse. Jonathan then vows to put away the necklace and end the feud forever, which works for 100 years, until Elizabeth Fier finds it buried in an old box in the back yard. It is only after that, that a stranger appears and he ends up being Franklin Goode. He murders Samuel, Katherine, and Kate Fier and is finally stopped from a poison dagger by Simon. Which leads to the third and final book...The Burning
