Firstly thank you to @netgalley, Little Brown Book Group UK and the Author for the ARC of this book.

"In 1893 there’s no such thing as witches"

The opening chapter is filled with wondrous and magical language painting a vivid picture of an otherworldly atmosphere.

"Once upon a time there were three sisters"

I’m at 16% and struggling. This book is barely holding my attention for a full chapter so far. I really hope it improves.

Currently at 42% and still struggling.

Favourite quote so far:
" ‘Rain. Rain. Go away. Come again some other day.’
- A Spell to delay a coming storm, requiring mere good luck"

Picked up around 63% starting to enjoy it now.

So yeah glad I persevered with this the story settles and starts to grip your interest.

I very much enjoyed this book from 60% onwards.

It’s a shame as I was very much excited for this book. I’m glad I stuck with it and got to the end but I don’t know if I would read it again.

A good story if you are willing and able to stick with it, I won’t lie it was hard going for me.

3 stars
