Dark Tide by Harriet Goodwin

Xanthe Fox has survived her first test as a teenage True Witch, and defeated her Hexing Witch enemy Donna - for now.

Soon Xanthe is seeing bright, glowing Xs, which are getting more powerful by the day. Convinced that a bigger hex than ever is being sparked, Xanthe knows that she must act - with or without the help of the other True Witches...
