"Hollman, who has a master's degree in medieval history, provides an in-depth account of each woman's rise to power and then chronicles the events of the time. A meticulous historical analysis."-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"Some of history's most overlooked witches finally have their day in a smart expose boiling over with intriguing women."
