It is no secret that I am a big time witch fan and am always on the look out for a great witch novel. The Witch’s Daughter by Paula Brackston was not a disappointment. This brilliantly written novel which follows the life of a witch through several centuries as she is hunted down by a nefarious warlock is everything witch fans hope for. It is smart, creepy, magical and satisfying. As a little added bonus there is also a historical element to the novel – so witch novel/historical fiction – yea!
One note of caution: The narrative does contain some unsettling violence and sex. Not incredibly descriptive, but still enough to deter some readers.
