Genevieve Gornichec earned her degree in history from The Ohio
State University, but she got as close to majoring in Vikings as
she possibly could, and her study of the Norse myths and Icelandic
sagas became her writing inspiration. She lives in Cleveland, Ohio.
The Witch's Heart is her debut novel.
"A deep journey into the mists of the ancient Norse world of gods,
monsters and humans, who shape shift from one to another. But the
heart of the story is a witch's passage over many lifetimes and the
ultimate sacrifice she makes for those she loves. A timeless tale
of great power and artistry."--Margaret George, New York
Times bestselling author of The Splendor Before the
"With prose as heady as any epic, Gornichec breathes incredible new life into an ancient saga, filling in the gaps with humor and passion and heart. A masterpiece."--Emily A. Duncan, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked Saints and Ruthless Gods
"Rich and artfully woven, The Witch's Heart takes the familiar tales of Norse Mythology and tells them from a fresh, honest perspective... Angrboda is an unforgettable heroine, and The Witch's Heart a debut to be reckoned with."--Hannah Long, author of Hall of Smoke
"The Witch's Heart is a unique novel that transforms the faceless names of an epic tale into living, breathing, sympathetic characters. With a witty and spirited protagonist, this book will surprise and delight from beginning to end."-Louisa Morgan, author of A Secret History of Witches and The Age of Witches
"As epic as it is engrossing, The Witch's Heart is a testament to the ferocity of one mother's love and the lengths she'll go to protect those she loves. Utterly unforgettable." -Alexis Henderson, author of The Year of the Witching
"This fascinating novel approaches Norse mythology from a brand new perspective; here old villains are now heroes, and the motivations of gods, giants, and witches are rarely what they seem... Gornichec plumbs the depths of what we will endure for family, belonging, and meaning, and traces the limits of love, friendship, and vengeance."--Linnea Hartsuyker, author of The Half-Drowned King
