Review

Best YA of the Decade List - Entertainment Weekly

“gorgeous new release” - Entertainment Weekly

“we’re ready for it to come roaring back” - B&N SFF Blog

“If you missed Schwab's debut novel when it first appeared, now's your chance to get on board.” - Kirkus Reviews

“we’re ready for it to come roaring back” - Barnes & Noble Bookseller Picks for March

“Situated in the sweet spot of the supernatural and the melancholy alongside works like The Ocean at the End of the Lane, [The Near Witch] boasts the dark and inviting sensibilities of fairy tales” - Barnes & Noble SFF Blog

“a delicate, yet powerful novel that succeeds equally as either a journey back to the beginning or as a first tumble down the rabbit hole and into your next author obsession” - Barnes & Noble SFF Blog

“an absolutely beautiful story...you can truly see her future works twinkling in the background” 4.5* - mall3tg1rl

"[has] that timeless allure, like a fairy tale or legend you can pick up five, ten, or twenty years from now and still have its setting and mood resonate with readers" - The Bibliosanctum 

 “an entirely unique and original story with an exquisitely painted world and for a debut novel, it’s so well written and well done” - Travel the Shelves

“The prose is beautifully written, and the characters will take residence in your heart” 5* - Her Campus

“The prose is beautifully written, and the characters will take residence in your heart” 5* - Books in the Skye

“the most gorgeous kind of fairytale, yet it feels like the kind of thing that’s just odd enough to be real, and I mean it when I tell you that this was easily one of the best books I’ve read all year, and will undoubtedly go down as one of my favorite books, period” 5* - Howling Libraries

“a modern classic that will undoubtedly be regarded as a masterpiece within its own genre by future generations” - Risingshadow 

“I loved getting to see themes in The Near Witch that I know become staples of her books...If you’ve read and loved other books by Schwab, I highly recommend sitting down with her debut.” - Bookish Staff Picks

“Schwab is truly a talented storyteller...Her characters are so well written that by the time you finish the story you feel as though you know them.” 4* - Misadventures of a Reader 

"A slow but intense gothic romance set in the atmospheric winds of the moors, where a witch’s whisper can just barely be heard" - Buzzfeed

5.0 out of 5 stars This woman can do no wrong!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 24, 2020
After tearing through the City of Ghosts and Tunnel of Bones, my youngest bookworm was desperate to try another Victoria Schwab book. Because I wasn't quite sure how appropriate the Dark Shadow series would be for her (she is nearly 12 but with a reading age of 15) I went for The Near Witch instead.
As I expected, she devoured this and absolutely loves it. I don't quite know what it is about Schwab but she just seems to have the magic touch with her stories and style.
