Overview

GANADORA A LA MEJOR NOVELA DEL AÑO DE LOS BRITISH FANTASY AWARDS.

LA NOVELA DE FANTASÍA MÁS ESPERADA DE LOS ÚLTIMOS AÑOS.

Una profunda historia sobre la resistencia, la sororidad y el derecho a voto ambientada en una versión alternativa de la Nueva Inglaterra del siglo XIX.

En 1893 ya no hay brujas. En el pasado sí que las había, en esa época oscura e inhóspita antes de que empezasen a encenderse las hogueras. Ahora, la brujería es poco más que hechizos de amas de casa y canciones infantiles. Si la mujer moderna quiere algo de poder, las urnas son el único lugar donde puede llegar a conseguirlo.

Pero James Juniper, Agnes Amaranth y Beatrice Belladonna, las hermanas Eastwood, se unen a las sufragistas de Nueva Salem y empiezan a buscar las palabras y los componentes olvidadas capaces de convertir la revolución de las mujeres en la revolución de las brujas. Las hermanas se verán acechadas por sombras y todo tipo de males, perseguidas por fuerzas que no tienen intención de permitir que las brujan voten, o que vivan siquiera, y tendrán que indagar en magia antigua, forjar nuevas alianzas y solucionar los problemas entre ellas si quieren sobrevivir.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

"A gorgeous and thrilling paean to the ferocious power of women. The characters live, bleed, and roar. "―Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Winner of the British Fantasy Award for Best Fantasy Novel • Named One of the Best Books of the Year by NPR Books • Barnes and Noble • BookPage


In the late 1800s, three sisters use witchcraft to change the course of history in this powerful novel of magic, family, and the suffragette movement. 

In 1893, there's no such thing as witches. There used to be, in the wild, dark days before the burnings began, but now witching is nothing but tidy charms and nursery rhymes. If the modern woman wants any measure of power, she must find it at the ballot box.

But when the Eastwood sisters―James Juniper, Agnes Amaranth, and Beatrice Belladonna―join the suffragists of New Salem, they begin to pursue the forgotten words and ways that might turn the women's movement into the witch's movement. Stalked by shadows and sickness, hunted by forces who will not suffer a witch to vote―and perhaps not even to live―the sisters will need to delve into the oldest magics, draw new alliances, and heal the bond between them if they want to survive.

There's no such thing as witches. But there will be.

An homage to the indomitable power and persistence of women, The Once and Future Witches reimagines stories of revolution, motherhood, and women's suffrage—the lost ways are calling.

"A glorious escape into a world where witchcraft has dwindled to a memory of women's magic, and three wild, sundered sisters hold the key to bring it back...A tale that will sweep you away."―Yangsze Choo, New York Times bestselling author
