Witchfires Series contains five Professionals AU stories by Madelaine Ingram.

They were published as parts in Cross My Heart and Fantazine and collected together in Witchfire Omnibus also called Legends.

The stories feature the characters Beydr "A Prince of Vaal" (Bodie) and Raedal "A Prince of Zeft" (Ray) and are set in the mythical days of Atlantis.

At least one of the stories was later published as original fiction. [1]
