A beautiful, fog-shrouded forest, legends of magic, and the desire to know her mysterious father draw fifteen-year-old Cara into a search for the truth about Blackthorne Forest and what's been hidden there for hundreds of years. When she discovers the truth of her heritage, she finds danger as well as love.
Until recently, Cara had never known her father, unaware of her magical heritage and the Elven abilities she possesses. But discovering her father’s identity has been a mixed blessing. Although he loves her dearly, he has enemies and Cara has become a target.
It’s the beginning of Cara’s senior year at Thornewood High, and she and her best friends are making plans to enjoy their last year in school together. But the psychopathic killer who threatened her life in the past is once again bent on revenge against Cara, her father, and their friends. No one is safe.
The Joining Tree is the fourth and final book in Cara’s story in the Blackthorne Forest series. Each book is an important part of the years she spends growing up, learning who she is, and where she belongs, both in the human world she was born into, and the magical world she has inherited from her father.
