Some of what they say about witches is true. A witch story unlike any other, from one of the UK's most outstanding LGBT writers.

She dug her mother's grave in the poison garden so it would stay hidden...

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.

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.

This is a witch story unlike any other.

Powerful, imaginative, compelling - this is myth-making at its best -- Val McDermid Beautiful......fierce and dream-like...powerful...compelling, haunting, and enriching * Scotsman * Spooky, timeless, feminist, inventive, unsettling... this book is every bit as atmospheric and compelling as you'd hope. -- Viv Groskop 'A hugely compelling book that seeks to rewrite what we think about witches. Dark, luscious prose wrapped around ideas that have enormous contemporary relevance. Kirsty Logan is at the height of her powers' -- Heather Parry 'Powerful, beautiful and deeply unsettling.
