The Black Witch
The Black Witch Chronicles #1
Laurie Forest
Expected Publication: May 2, 2017
Genre: YA Fantasy
A Great Winged One will soon arise and cast his fearsome shadow upon the land. And just as Night slays Day, and Day slays Night, so also shall another Black Witch rise to meet him, her powers vast beyond imagining.

So foretells the greatest prophecy of the Gardnerian mages. Carnissa Gardner, the last prophesied Black Witch, drove back the enemy forces and saved her people during the Realm War. Now a new evil is on the horizon, and her granddaughter, Elloren, is believed to be Carnissa’s heir—but while she is the absolute image of her famous grandmother, Elloren is utterly devoid of power in a society that prizes magical ability above nearly all else.

When she is granted the opportunity to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an apothecary, Elloren is eager to join her brothers at the prestigious Verpax University and finally embrace a destiny of her own, free from the shadow of her grandmother’s legacy. But she soon realizes that the University, which admits all manner of peoples—including the fire-wielding, winged Icarals, the sworn enemies of her people—is an even more treacherous place for the granddaughter of the Black Witch.
There are trees growing on that feather.

  1. I also noted the trees growing on the feather, it's really cool how they did that! This is also one of my most anticipated debuts, and I can't wait to read it :)

  2. I saw this posted on a friend's blog a few weeks ago, as her WoW choice! I'd not heard of it before then, but it definitely caught my attention. I haven't read a witchy story in a looooong time. :D I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

    Have a great week. =)

    Check out my WoW post!
