Summary

Mistress Gideon is a witch. The locals of Edda's Meadow, if they suspect it of her, say nary a word - Gideon has been good to them, and it's always better to keep on her good side. Just in case. When a foolish young shapeshifter goes against the wishes of her pack and gets herself very publicly caught, the authorities find it impossible to deny the existence of the supernatural in their midst any longer; Gideon and her like are captured, bound for torture and a fiery end. Should Gideon give up her sisters in return for a quick death? Or can she turn the situation to her advantage?

A quick and mesmerizing tale!

This is a great little story. While I don't really love first person stories, this was good. Actually, the first person led to the suspense.

The author does a skillful job of weaving potentially triggering elements of witch persecution with delicacy.

I'll be looking for other reads by her!

Absolute Perfection

Feminist witch fiction with a satisfying ending. Slatter does a miraculous job writing about violence in non-triggering, non-salacious ways. Gorgeous and masterful. Marisa Calin's narration is flawless, though her voice cast the protagonist/narrator as much younger than described, so that occasionally brought me out of the story. Totally worth it, though- she's an incredible narrator and lovely to listen to.
