Witch by Finbar Hawkins is an amazing debut which is set in the 17th century. I want to thank HarperCollins Publishers Australia for the review copy
After witnessing the brutal murder of her mother by witch-hunters, Evey vows to avenge her and track down the killers. Fury burns in her bright and strong. But she has promised her mother that she will keep Dill, her little sister, safe.
As the lust for blood and retribution rises to fever pitch, will Evey keep true to the bonds of sisterhood and to the magick that is her destiny?
Hawkins did an amazing job creating a dark and haunting atmosphere in his novel. This book features witchcraft, revenge, the trauma from grief and strong family ties. It also deals with the witch trials which has intrigued me.
This book fit perfectly in the era and had me entranced from the first page.
