Review quote

'The witchcraft aspects of the story are skillfully brought to life, as is the Pyrenean landscape. Fans of Buffy, Potter and Twilight, form an orderly queue' Financial Times 'This magical fantasy has enough invention, adventure and teenage tension running through it to satisfy any young woman who's yearned for a little more magic in her life' 'If you're a fan of the Twilight series, or are partial to a bit of Buffy or Charmed, or are hocus-pocus bonkers, this is one for you ... Mysterious and gripping, War of the Witches is magical in more ways than one!'
