Editorial Reviews

Review

“Lushly written with a fascinating premise and an enthralling heroine, The Witch’s Daughter will linger long in memory after the last page has been savored.  Highly recommended.” -- Sara Poole, author of The Borgia Betrayal

"A beautifully written, brilliantly crafted page-turner that completely invests you in the lives and loves of the witch's daughter. A true reading event." --Melissa Senate, author of The Love Goddess' Cooking School
 
"Brackston’s first novel offers well-crafted characters in an absorbing plot and an altogether delicious blend of historical fiction and fantasy." --Booklist

"This pleasantly romantic historical fantasy debut flips lightly between the past experiences of ageless witch Elizabeth Anne Hawksmith and her present-day life in Matravers, England... Bess's adventures are fascinating." --Publishers Weekly

“With her first novel, author Paula Brackston conjures up a riveting tale of sorcery and time travel. By mixing feminine heroism with masculine might, Brackston successfully captivates readers with characters Bess, an immortal witch, and sinister dark lord, Gideon….  It's almost impossible not to root for the underdog in this magical twist on the classic David vs. Goliath tale. Plus, the skill with which Brackston weaves her characters through time makes this book a fascinating take on global history.” –Marie Claire

“Stretching her tale over several centuries, British-based Brackston brings energy as well as commercial savvy to her saga of innocence and the dark arts….  History, time travel and fantasy combine in a solidly readable entertainment.” --Kirkus
 
"An engaging, well-written novel that will appeal to fans of historical fiction and fantasy alike." --Portland Book Review

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Paula Brackston lives in the historic city of Hereford on the Welsh border. She has an MA in Creative Writing from Lancaster University, and has been a Visiting Lecturer for the University of Wales, Newport. Before becoming a writer, Paula tried her hand at various career paths, with mixed success. These included working as a groom on a racing yard, a travel agent, a secretary, an English teacher, a script reader, and a goat herd. Everyone involved (particularly the goats) is very relieved that she has now found a job she is actually able to do properly.

In 2007 Paula was shortlisted in the Creme de la Crime search for new writers. In 2010 her book 'Nutters' (writing as PJ Davy) was shortlisted for the Mind Book Award. The following year she was selected by the BBC under their New Welsh Writers scheme. 'The Witch's Daughter' became a New York Times bestseller. Her books are translated into five languages and sold around the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars I bought the sequel first & Had no idea!
By Marissa 😘 on February 26, 2020
I went to barnes and noble & bought the return of the witch (book 2) but I didnt have my glasses on and I thought maybe that would a great new book to read to get out of my funk. But i didn't read it; obviously. & I finally went home and read the back and it said 'sequel to the witches daughter' and i said now i have to order the next book and it came two days later! perfectly packaged with bubble wrap, no damage, and just like the pictures!

If you like books about witches and warlocks; this is a great read! I read some reviews about books before & still loved the books! So you can't judge a book by its cover.
