THE BIRDICT

🧡 This thoroughly modern imagining of witchcraft in whitehall had me bewitched from start to stop. It reminded me of the excellent Fort Salem TV series, with its intricate alternate history and defined power structure, not to mention complex relationships.

💚 The fantastic cast of characters, their personal politics, machinations and betrayals, all of it works brilliantly, but for me it is the coming of age journey of transgender witch Theo that tugged at my heart. The view of witchcraft as traditionally female acting as the source of prejudice was, if not subtle, certainly smart. Can’t wait to see how her story unfolds.

Big thanks to NetGalley and HarperCollins UK Audio for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 There are too many characters and plot lines to call this an easy listen. I had to concentrate quite hard to keep track of it all.

🎧 I really enjoyed Nicola Coughlan’s performance. She has this silky voice and gorgeous Irish lilt and she kept everything understated, allowing the fiction to speak for itself. However, whenever there are so many characters, I do prefer having the added vocal cues of multiple narrators.

The cliffhanger is tortuous. Can't wait for next book.

Her Majesty’s Royal Coven

THE BLURB

Hidden among us is a secret coven of witches. They are Her Majesty’s Royal Coven. They protect crown and country from magical forces and otherworldly evil. But their greatest enemy will come from within.

There are whisperings of a prophecy that will bring the coven to its knees, and five best friends are about to be caught at the centre. Life as a modern witch was never simple … but now it’s about to get apocalyptic.

Prepare to be bewitched by Juno Dawson’s first adult series. A story of ancient prophecies and modern dating, of sacred sisterhood and demonic frenemies.
