Anna still finds it hard to believe that Seth loves her and has vowed to suppress her powers, no matter what. But magic - like love - is uncontrollable and soon, Anna is being hunted. Abe wants Anna to embrace her power, while Seth is pushing Anna to accept that his feelings are real. She finally does ... a moment too late. Suddenly, it's like the Salem witch trials all over again: burnings, torture and faceless judgements. In the face of the ultimate betrayal, who will save her?
The second novel in the Winter trilogy, this follows the critically acclaimed debut A WITCH IN WINTER.

"Ruth Warburton is going to take the YA market by storm. A Witch in Winter is a thoroughly enchanting read!" - Jade, at Ink Scratchers * Jade at Ink Scratchers * "One of my most highly anticipated 2012 reads..." - Brodie of Eleusinian Mysteries * Brodie of Eleusinian Mysteries * "It's a great read, steeped in witchcraft, with a steamy romance, feisty leads and a brooding coastal setting." * The Bookseller * "Anna's reactions to the events were pretty much how I imagine I'd react, which made it easy to love her... The love story was so fantastically different, I loved the idea of it and it was so well executed... The ultimate battle was amazing, the enemy was one that I actually found quite scary, and the solution was neither easy nor lazy. It has everything you'd expect from a paranormal YA, but it avoids the cliches and predictability..." - Cait from The Cait Files * Cait from The Cait Files * Although this is mid-way through a trilogy it works totally as a standalone read within a very satisfying sequence. * School Librarian *

About Ruth Warburton

Ruth Warburton grew up on the south coast of England and went on to study English at the University of Manchester, where she developed a fascination with Old English and Middle English texts. While researching A WITCH IN WINTER she found herself returning to them, in particular BEOWULF and LE MORTE D`ARTHUR, and seeds from these mixed with ancient Mesopotamian demons, Voodoo spells, Tudor superstitions and 15th century witch-hunting guides, to create the Winter Trilogy.

Ruth is a publicist for adult fiction at Random House and lives in North London.

Our customer reviews

This book is the follow-up to A Witch in Winter, I had lots of unanswered questions after reading that book so I couldn't wait to start reading this one. The action started early in the story and there was lots of it throughout, also the dark and eerie feeling that I got in the first book continued in this one which made it feel familiar to read. Again Anna faced danger and many emotional revelations, including trying to figure out her relationship with Seth. I still felt unsure about Seth, I couldn't put my finger on what it was that bothered me about him but something happened near the end that helped me make up my mind about his character - I won't say whether it's good or bad though, you'll have to find that out for yourself! A trip back to London uncovers something that worries Anna and is also the beginning of a significant change in her life where she finds out more about her mother and family. Abe was a particular favourite again and as we find out a little bit more about him I think I can finally understand him better. I would definitely like to see him get together with Anna so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that something might happen in the next book. There were a few unexpected moments, some of which took a nasty and scary turn that I just couldn't see Anna getting out of. All this means that I really can't wait for the next instalment A Witch Alone, there was a sneak peek of this in the back of the book and let me tell you, it was super exciting and raised my hopes that at least one of my predictions might come true. It really does hint at the final book being truly amazing! This is a magical, eerie book that definitely has me under its more
