Arianwyn fluffs her witch’s assessment. Awarded the dull bronze disc of an apprentice – to the glee of her arch-rival, Gimma – she’s sent to protect the remote, dreary town of Lull.
But her new life is far from boring. Turns out Gimma is the pompous mayor’s favourite niece – and worse, she opens a magical rift in the nearby forest.
As Arianwyn struggles with her spells, it’s soon clear there’s much more than her pride at stake …
A bewitching debut set in a world of domestic magic – a refreshingly small-world fantasy perfect for readers aged 9 and up.
A spellbinding read, tapping into important themes of overcoming failure and building self-esteem.
Filled with thrills, pesky magical conundrums, outlandish creatures and an enchanted forest, yet retains its warm soul and earthy charm!
