Author(s): Finbar Hawkins
Set in the 17th century, a breathtaking debut, and a potential prize-winner, about the power of women, witchcraft, fury, revenge and the ties that bind us.
After witnessing the brutal murder of her mother by witch-hunters, Evey vows to avenge her and track down the killers. Fury burns in her bright and strong. But she has promised her mother that she will keep Dill, her little sister, safe.
As the lust for blood and retribution rises to fever pitch, will Evey keep true to the bonds of sisterhood and to the magick that is her destiny?
Young Reader Review by Clara, 10:
Witch is amazing! The way Evey is so set on what she wants, but doesn't realise her feelings is written perfectly, it feels like I am in the book with her, sharing her perspective. The dark moments are there, they aren't coated with a layer of sugar and that is one of my favourite things about the book. The sibling rivalry is perfect.
