Lush and chilling, with razor-sharp edges and an iron core of hope, this bewitching, powerhouse novel of two girls fighting back against the violence the world visits on them will stun and enchant readers.


When Natasha's sister disappears, Natasha desperately turns to Della, a local girl rumoured to be a witch, in the hopes that magic will bring her sister home.


But Della has her own secrets to hide. She thinks the beast who's responsible for the disappearances is her own mother-who was turned into a terrible monster by magic gone wrong.


Natasha is angry. Della has little to lose. Both are each other's only hope.
