Welcome to my stop on the #BlogTour for #TheOnceAndFutureWitches by @AlixEHarrow #ProvidedForReview @orbitbooks

A huge thank you for my review copy and SORRY for my later than usual posting time – it’s been a day! And I haven’t had the time to sit down until after super time – BUT I am happy to finally share my excitement for this rather wonderful book.

Just LOOK at that cover! It’s gorgeous, right!?!?! Absolutely. Beautiful.

And the blurb – had me desperate to jump in. I am very much enjoying the resurgence of Witchy tales and there is no better month than October to pick up a book set in Salem.

Book Blurb:

In 1893, there’s no such thing as witches. There used to be, in the wild, dark days before the burnings began, but now witching is nothing but tidy charms and nursery rhymes. If the modern woman wants any measure of power, she must find it at the ballot box.

But when the three Eastwood sisters join the suffragists of New Salem, they begin to pursue the forgotten ways that might turn the women’s movement into the witch’s movement. Stalked by shadows and sickness, hunted by forces who will not suffer a witch to vote – and perhaps not even to live – the sisters must delve into the oldest magics, draw new alliances, and heal the bond between them if they want to survive.

There’s no such thing as witches. But there will be.

And The Once and Future Witches does NOT disappoint. I now understand why everyone is raving about it! I don’t think I’ve read a negative review as of yet.

WORDY. Words. WORDY.

Alix E. Harrow is a wordy author. And I LOVED it. I love wordy, meandering and descriptive prose that makes my inner aspiring author jealous of how beautifully she’s managed to describe the details. Her writing was beautiful.

After reading The Once and Future Witches I am now the proud owner of Alix E. Harrow’s first book and I will be making every effort to pick it up soon. I ADORE when an author immediately makes you want to buy and read ALL of their back catalogue, don’t you!?!?

The only small (tiny) criticism I had was it took me a good few chapters before I got to grips with the story and characters – I wasn’t invested straight away. But when the book grabbed my attention it GRABBED it! Just stick with it.

I don’t want to say too much about the story but it was a rather inspiring tale of family dynamics, magic and it was surprisingly thought-provoking. A GREAT, great read.

Have you read The Once and Future Witches? Do you want too?

I received a copy of the book for review, which was all arranged by the blog tour organiser – Thank you!
