"Romantic, mysterious, and wildly inventive. I adored every gorgeous word."-Nancy Werlin, author of Impossible and Extraordinary Briony has a secret. She believes her secret killed her stepmother, destroyed her twin sister's mind, and threatens all the children in the Swampsea. She yearns to be rid of her terrible secret, but risks being hanged if she tells a soul. That's what happens to witches: They're hanged by the neck until dead.Then Eldric arrives-Eldric with his golden mane and lion eyes and electric energy-and he refuses to believe anything dark about Briony. But he wonders what's been buried beneath her self-hatred, hidden in Rose's mangled thoughts, and whispered about by the Old Ones. And Briony wonders how Eldric can make her want to cry. Especially when everyone knows that witches can't cry.A wild, haunting mystery and romance that is as beautifully written as it is captivating.
