The Once and Future Witches

The Once and Future Witches

The Once and Future Witches is a gorgeous and thrilling paean to the ferocious power of women’ Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author

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.

‘A brilliant dazzle of a book . . . I devoured it in enormous gulps, and utterly loved it’ Kat Howard, author of The Unkindness of Ghosts

‘This is a delightful, satisfying novel, a tale of women’s battle for equality, of fairy tales twisted into wonderfully witchy spells, of magics both large and small, and history re-imagined’ Louisa Morgan, author of A Secret History of Witches

‘ A love letter to folklore and the rebellious women of history’ Publishers Weekly

Reviews

A gorgeous, aching love letter to stories, storytellers and the doors they lead us through . . . absolutely enchanting
Christina Henry, on THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY
The Ten Thousand Doors of January healed hurts I didn't even know I had. An unbearably beautiful story about growing up, and everything we fight to keep along the way
Amal El-Mohtar, Hugo Award-winning author
Harrow is more than an author; she is a Wordsmith, a sorceress wielding a pen in place of a wand
NOVEL NOTIONS
The storytelling is a joyful kind of magic. Alix E. Harrow has a beautifully dreamy style that is irresistible, even at the book's darkest moments, and her imagination feels limitless . . . this book is an infectious celebration of courage and wonder that feels like a massive, life affirming hug
SCIFINOW on THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY
A gorgeous world of magic that is at once familiar and startlingly new
Erika Swyler on THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY
One of the most unique works of fiction I've ever read
Tamora Pierce on THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY
A gorgeous and thrilling paean to the ferocious power of women. The characters live, bleed, and roar. I adore them, and long for witchcraft to awaken in all of us.
Laini Taylor, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author
The Once and Future Witches is a brilliant dazzle of a book. This story of sisters and witches, memory and power cracked open my heart and set down roots there. I devoured it in enormous gulps, and utterly loved it.
Kat Howard, author of THE UNKINDNESS OF GHOSTS
This is a delightful, satisfying novel, a tale of women's battle for equality, of fairy tales twisted into wonderfully witchy spells, of magics both large and small, and history re-imagined. All of it is told in Alix Harrow's exquisite language and with her vivid characterizations-a great pleasure to read
