Drawn from folklore and history, -Harrow's lyrical prose immerses readers in a story of power and secrets that is not easily -forgotten.--Library Journal (starred review)
A gorgeous and thrilling paean to the ferocious power of women. The characters live, bleed, and roar. I adore them, and long for witchcraft to awaken in all of us. Harrow makes it feel possible, and even likely.--Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author
A glorious escape into a world where witchcraft has dwindled to a memory of women's magic, and three wild, sundered sisters hold the key to bring it back....A tale that will sweep you away.--Yangsze Choo, NYT bestselling author of Night Tiger and The Ghost Bride
This novel cleverly connects the dots between the suffragist movement of the past to the Me Too movement of today. Compelling, exhilarating, and magical, The Once and Future Witches is a must-read.--Booklist (starred review)
The magical tale of imperfect heroines, fractured sisterhood, and shadowy undying villains you never knew you needed. Alix Harrow crafts a delightfully bewitching story with familiar but ingeniously recrafted histories and deft worldbuilding as rich as the prose that leaps off the page. This book is an amazing bit of spellcraft and resistance so needed in our times, and a reminder that secret words and ways can never be truly and properly lost, as long as there are tongues to speak them and ears to listen.--P. Djèlí Clark, author The Black God's Drum
A love letter to folklore and the rebellious women of history.--Publishers Weekly
This is a delightful, satisfying novel, a tale of women's battle for equality, of fairy tales twisted into wonderfully witchy spells, of magics both large and small, and history re-imagined. All of it is told in Alix Harrow's exquisite language and with her vivid characterizations-a great pleasure to read.--Louisa Morgan, author of A Secret History of Witches
A breathtaking book-brilliant and raw and dark and complicated. It's also, to be blunt, uncannily relevant.--Sarah Gailey, author of Magic for Liars
A brilliant dazzle of a book. This story of sisters and witches, memory and power cracked open my heart and set down roots there. I devoured it in enormous gulps, and utterly loved it.--Kat Howard, author of An Unkindness of Ghosts
