Now She is Witch

by Kirsty Logan - £9.99  Vintage Publishing (2023)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781529116113 | ISBN 10: 1529116112

She dug her mother's grave in the poison garden so it would stay hidden...
From the snowy winter woods to the bright midnight sun; from lost and powerless to finding your path, Now She is Witch conjures a world of violence and beauty - a world where women grasp at power through witchcraft, sexuality and performance, and most of all through throwing each other to the wolves.
Lux has lost everything when Else finds her, alone in the woods. Her family, her lover, her home - all burned. The world is suspicious of women like her. But Lux is cunning; she knows how to exploit people's expectations, how to blend into the background. And she knows a lot about poisons.
Else has not found Lux by accident. She needs her help to seek revenge against the man who wronged her, and together they pursue him north. But on their hunt they will uncover dark secrets that entangle them with dangerous adversaries.
This is a witch story unlike any other.
'An impassioned reclaiming of female desire. Stuffed, Russian-doll like, with stories, it's on the baggy side... an absorbingly atmospheric adventure' Daily Mail
'Beautiful......fierce and dream-like...powerful...compelling, haunting, and enriching' Scotsman
'Spooky, timeless, feminist, inventive, unsettling' Viv Groskop
'Powerful, imaginative, compelling - this is myth-making at its best' Val McDermid
