the last windwitch
Publisher: Harper Collins Childrens
Release Date: Apr 3, 2021
This delightfully classic middle grade fantasy debut, perfect for fans of Serafina and the Black Cloak and The Book of Boy, follows an unlikely young witch as she discovers that she is the key to saving her kingdom.
Brida is content in her small village of Oak Hollow. There, she’s plenty occupied trying to convince her fickle magic to do what it’s meant to in her work as a hedgewitch’s apprentice—until she accidentally catches the attention of the wicked queen.
On the run from the queen’s huntsman and her all-seeing Crow spies, Brida discovers the truth about her family, her magic, and who she is destined to be—and that she may hold the power to defeating the wicked queen and setting the kingdom right again.
Fans of Shannon Hale and Kelly Barnhill will delight in this charming and richly imagined fantasy debut, featuring a wicked queen, magical animals, a henchman with a golden heart, and a small girl with a great destiny.
When she's not wandering her husband's family farm, kayaking on the lake, or riding her (formerly) wild rangebred mustangs, Jennifer Adam can be found surrounded by books, fountain pens, and cats. She believes in dancing through moonlight, celebrating rain, and making wishes. THE LAST WINDWITCH is her first novel.
