The highly anticipated new novel from Alix E. Harrow, The Once and Future Witches, is out this week.
This interesting flight into historical fantasy tells the story of three sisters who join the suffragist movement in 1893 in New Salem. Witchcraft no longer exists anymore…but that doesn’t mean it will stay that way.
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 Eastwood sisters–James Juniper, Agnes Amaranth, and Beatrice Belladonna–join the suffragists of New Salem, they begin to pursue the forgotten words and 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 will need to 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.
The Once and Future Witches is due to be released on October 15th, 2020, published by Orbit.
