Questo libro è stata una piccola sorpresa, mi ha regalato una storia nuova ed ambientata in uno dei miei periodi storici preferiti! Si parla di Streghe nella seconda metà del 1500 in Inghilterra, quando la Regina Elisabetta deve ancora sconfiggere del tutto la cugina rivale, Maria Stuarta, Regina...

I like my books to match my mood and my surroundings. And my autumnal aesthetic is darker-themed fiction, with hints of the fantastical, and full of atmospheric settings. So, it felt like the gods were answering my prayers when 'Witchborn' by Nicholas Bowling arrived on my doorstep. This historica...

Witchborn was a really fun historical fantasy with a realistic setting and plenty of added mystery and magic. Set in 1577 with Queen Elizabeth I on the throne and Mary Queen of Scots locked in the Tower of London for treason this is a story about an ongoing, bitter rivalry between the two queens...

An alternative history YA, the only thing Witchborn gets right is its cover. The collection of words that lies behind artist Erica Williams' work is written by a man with seemingly no real understanding of women - much less teenage girls - nor any affinity with plot structure and tension building...

I do love a bit of history, and I do love witches and magic, so of course I had to read this! I still wasn't entirely sure what to expect going in to the book, the back of the proof had a certain amount of information but not too much and I found myself being pleasantly surprised as I was reading...

This was such a great book!!! Let me hit you with some more of those !!!! Honestly, I wasn't even a third of the way through this when I just knew it would be a five star read for me - it had everything quintessentially witchy, like spells and ravens and necromancy (!) all set in Elizabethan Engla...

I have to admit, I picked this up purely based on the cover... Bowling’s writing style completely draws you in which keeps the story fast-paced and creates a real page turner. Unfortunately though, there were a few downfalls for me personally. The main character, Alyce, is impulsive, lackadaisical...

I was a little confused at parts but I really liked it overall! I loved the mystery and the historical elements, so many brilliant hist...
