So many twists and turns. The story has a nice slow build that keeps you on your toes. Just when you think the story has run it’s course something new comes up and more story is to be told! These three sisters have an incredible bond and are quite literally tied together and yet their relationship is complicated and worn like true family bonds often are. The story is told beautifully and I would absolutely go to see this as a movie

I was ultimately disappointed by The Once and Future Witches after Harrow's lovely first novel, The Ten Thousand Doors of January. Witches still has Harrow's fairy-tale-like prose and intimately defined characters, but the story lacked a strong central mystery to pull me through the rather slow paced plot.
