Now She is Witch

‘Myth-making at its best‘ Val McDermid

«Kirsty Logan's mesmerising and evocative novel represents an imaginative triumph in this new subgenre [of "witch lit"]... There are echoes of everything from the Brothers Grimm to Angela Carter in Logan's deceptively simple storytelling»

Observer

This is a witch story unlike any other.

Lux has lost everything when Else finds her in the woods. Her family, her lover, her home - all burned. The world is suspicious of women like her. But Lux is cunning; she knows how to blend into the background. And she knows a lot about poisons.

Else needs Lux's help to destroy the man who wronged her. But on their hunt they will uncover dark secrets that entangle them with dangerous adversaries.

From the snowy winter woods to the bright midnight sun; from lost and powerless to finding your path, Now She is Witch conjures a world where women grasp at power through witchcraft, sexuality and performance, and sometimes by throwing each other to the wolves.

*NO & OTHER LOVE STORIES, KIRSTY LOGAN'S NEW BOOK IS AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER NOW*
