Reviews

'I've saved the best for last. The prolific, erudite and consistently brilliant Celia Rees is justly renowned for her dizzyingly inventive plots, redolent of everyone from Angela Carter to Shakespeare. Sovay and Witch Child are two of her best-known books in the younger market, but she has written countless more, all equally breathtaking' Guardian 'This is a powerful, absorbing and unusual novel' The Bookseller 'The sort of historial novel eleven and twelve year olds will gobble up at a sitting' Nina Bawden 'A gripping, thrilling novel that transports you to a time of paranoia and witch hunts. Witch Child and the sequel Sorceress are historical fiction at its very best' Waterstone's Guide to Kid's Books
