The Spell of the Shadowbrook Witch is a variation upon an old theme.  India Crowley, an eccentric young woman has pretended to be a witch for years and is the butt of jokes in the apartment complex in which she lives. Suddenly one Halloween night, against the advice from her friends, she crosses the line between make-believe and serious witchcraft.  After suffering ridicule from the tenants at Shadowbrook Arms, India manages to invoke the dark forces and castes a spell upon her antagonists, turning twelve young men and women into cats. Naturally, all twelve cats, who communicate by telepathy, reflect their human personalities, ranging over several breeds of cats, but time begins to run out collectively for them as they search for a counter spell. A preacher, a defrocked priest, a would-be sorcerer and a “white witch” work together to find a cure before the felines lose their humanity entirely and mentally become one hundred percent cats.
