Summary

A young witch must choose between love and loyalty, power and ambition, in this magical novel set in Gilded Age New York and London.

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.

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.

Critic reviews

"Thoroughly enthralling."(Booklist)

"A must-read for those who like magic, love, and a little bit of feel-good feminism in their historical fiction." (Library Journal)

"An Austen-esque romance, a heart-racing mystery full of dangerous twists and an anxiety-inducing yet enthralling family feud, Louisa Morgan's The Age of Witches is anything but a traditional tale of good versus evil." (BookPage)

The age of witches

A story about blood will out, and creating negative magic will return back on the creator.
It reminds you how lucky some people are now. Not having to hide their talents.
