If your looking for a Halloween read, look no further than The Once and Future Witches by Alix E Harrow

Today I am so excited to be joining the blog tour for The Once and Future Witches, I absolutely love fantasy and witch craft and this has been the perfect story to read in the lead up to Halloween.

My Review

Oh what a superb read, I love anything about witch craft and this book was superb beginning to end.

In this story we meet the Eastwood sisters, who all hold a different interest in the lost ways of witching and follow their story as they set about unlocking the lost ways of Avalon. I loved how this story referred to the Sister’s Grimm stories and how the spells were sung using nursery rhymes and myths. The words flow from the pages like one long spell being sung and the further I read, the more the story leapt effortlessly off of the pages.

If you love witch craft you will love this, a story full of witching ways, with whispered spells and shadows hiding around corners. I am so disappointed to reach the end as I loved the way the story was written and will miss the wonderful Eastwood sisters and their whispered words.

The perfect read for Halloween and I am so excited to be able to share my review and recommend this wonderful read!!

Book Blurb

In 1893, there’s no such thing as witches. There used to be, in the wild, dark days before the burnings began, but now witching is nothing but tidy charms and nursery rhymes. If the modern woman wants any measure of power, she must find it at the ballot box.

But when the three Eastwood sisters join the suffragists of New Salem, they begin to pursue the forgotten ways that might turn the women’s movement into the witch’s movement. Stalked by shadows and sickness, hunted by forces who will not suffer a witch to vote – and perhaps not even to live – the sisters must delve into the oldest magics, draw new alliances, and heal the bond between them if they want to survive.

There’s no such thing as witches. But there will be.

Meet Alix E Harrow

I’ve been a student and a teacher, a farm-worker and a cashier, an ice-cream-scooper and a 9-to-5 office-dweller. I’ve lived in tents and cars, cramped city apartments and lonely cabins, and spent a summer in a really sweet ’79 VW Vanagon Westfalia. I have library cards in at least five states.

Now I’m a full-time writer living in with my husband and two semi-feral kids in Berea, Kentucky. It is, I’m very sure, the best of all possible worlds.

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
