The Age of Witches
Books | Fiction / Fantasy / Historical
In Gilded Age New York, a centuries-long clash between two magical families ignites when a young witch must choose between love and loyalty, power and ambition, in this magical novel by Louisa Morgan. In 1692, Bridget Bishop was hanged as a witch. Two hundred years later, her legacy lives on in the scions of two very different lines: one dedicated to using their powers to heal and help women in need; the other, determined to grasp power for themselves by whatever means necessary. This clash will play out in the fate of Annis, a young woman in Gilded Age New York who finds herself a pawn in the family struggle for supremacy. She'll need to claim her own power to save herself-and resist succumbing to the darkness that threatens to overcome them all.Praise for The Age of Witches:"Morgan's beautifully conjured tale of three women, social mores, and the sanctity of self-determination is thoroughly enthralling." —Booklist (starred review)"Morgan’s incantatory prose and independent-minded women will delight fans of Alice Hoffman and Sarah Addison Allen with this tale of female self-realization and magical realism. A highly enjoyable read." —Historical Novel Society"An Austen-esque romance, a heart-racing mystery full of dangerous twists and an anxiety-inducing yet enthralling family feud....It all makes for a perfect brew." —BookpageFor more from Louisa Morgan, check out:A Secret History of WitchesThe Witch's Kind

"It was charming in lots of ways. It was super predictable, which isn’t always a bad thing. But I can’t say it’s a great book. It’s nice to read in a few days span and enjoy the themes presented. I guess I was expecting something different than what it was, my own fault. I’d give it a 6/10, and probably wouldn’t be on my recommendation list. Seems to be for a young audience, 12 year old me would have been entranced by this book"
