The hidden race believed that the Salem Witch Trials were the result of the Witches breaking their most sacred taboo. The taboo to stay hidden from the humans at all times. The punishment for breaking the taboo is death to the entire race. So it was done! All the witches of the hidden race in the entire world were killed. It was believed that not a single witch survived the genocide or so the vampires, werewolves, fae, and other members of the hidden race believed for more than three hundred years.
… until one day, a girl named Aradia Preston moves to Salem and everything changes.
