Inhaltsangabe: Midnight is the most bewitching hour of them all From Paula Brackston, the New York Times best....

Rezension:

Brackston neatly balances a vivid portrayal of 1913 London on the brink of war with fantastical necromantic set-pieces...The Midnight Witch is a compelling read. The Guardian (London)

A sensitive, beautifully written account If the Bronte sisters had penned magical realism, this would have been the result. The Guardian (London) on The Winter Witch

There's a whiff of Harry Potter in the witchy conflict--a battle between undeveloped young magical talent and old malevolence--at the heart of this sprightly tale of spells and romance, the second novel from British writer Brackston (The Witch's Daughter, 2011) . Love of landscape and lyrical writing lend charm, but it's Brackston's full-blooded storytelling that will hook the reader. Kirkus on The Winter Witch

Brackston delivers an intimate paranormal romance that grounds its fantasy in the reality of a 19th century Welsh farm. Publishers Weekly on The Winter Witch

Brackston's imaginative story is fascinating, polished and intriguing. CurledUp.com on The Winter Witch

Paula Brackston's Winter Witch is a whimsical and mystical tale that's part romance part mystery part fantasy and all extraordinary. Her beautiful narrative moves flawlessly throughout the story This unique novel will appeal to fans of a multitude of genres from historical to fantasy and will engage fans of all ages as well. The Reading Frenzy (blog) on The Winter Witch

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, on The Witch's Daughter

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, on The Witch's Daughter

A lyrical and spell-binding time travel fantasy featuring an immortal witch who must summon all her powers to defeat the evil hounding her through the centuries. Mary Sharratt, author of Daughters of the Witching Hill, on The Witch's Daughter

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 on The Witch's Daughter

Brackston's first novel offers well-crafted characters in an absorbing plot and an altogether delicious blend of historical fiction and fantasy. Booklist on The Witch's Daughter

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 on The Witch's Daughter

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 on The Witch's Daughter

An engaging, well-written novel that will appeal to fans of historical fiction and fantasy alike. Portland Book Review on The Witch's Daughter

Part historical romance, part modern fantasy, The Witch's Daughter is a fresh, compelling take on the magical, yet dangerous world of witches. Readers will long remember the fiercely independent heroine who survives plagues, wars, and the heartbreak of immortality to stay true to herself, and protect the protege she comes to love. NightOwlReviews.com on The Witch's Daughter

The Witch's Daughter is a wonderful combination of historical fiction and paranormal. Brackston's story alternates between past and present as she mixes tales of Elizabeth's early life with the present day, tying in historical events including Jack the Ripper and the horrors of WWI... Overall, a really enjoyable read. BookBitch.com on The Witch's Daughter

Readers who enjoy historical fantasy built around an epic struggle between good and evil should enjoy this original take on the theme. HistoricalNovels.info on The Witch's Daughter

An enjoyable read. Genre Go Round Reviews on The Witch's Daughter

This tale spans centuries and walks the line between good and the darker side of magic. Magic and those who possess it have been feared and persecuted throughout most of human history. Find out what it is like to live for hundreds of years, mostly in solitude, and have to struggle with having the power to help people, but being afraid to use that power. Affaire de Coeur on The Witch's Daughter

Women will certainly love the independent, feisty female characters, but the narrative is wonderfully imaginative and the plot fast-moving and filled with action. This novel is highly recommended for witches and warlocks alike. Historical Novel Society on The Witch's Daughter

The combination of stories from the past and the present meld nicely, and the author adds some clever twists so the reader never knows exactly from whom the next Gideon apparition will arise. Perhaps the best twist is the ending--leaving an opening for another book, but at the same time furnishing the reader with quite a satisfactory ending. The National Examiner (UK) on The Witch's Daughter

Ambitious and thought-provoking, this book will lure you into vivid, visceral worlds where evil lurks at every turn. The beautifully crafted BOOK OF SHADOWS will be etched on my mind for a long time. What an action-packed, emotionally powerful film it would make too. Sally Spedding, author of STRANGERS WAITING, on The Witch's Daughter

An unforgettable story by a highly original new writer. Rebecca Tope, author of the Cotswold crime series, on The Witch's Daughter

The Witch's Daughter is a must read for anyone who loves magic set in the real world, who craves a well-written novel with historical elements along with romance and witchcraft tied into a tension-filled plot and vivid imagery, and, of course, who seeks an escape from their own lives if only for a moment. Huffington Post on The Witch's Daughter

...compelling and beautiful...a book to be savored. I look forward to reading more from this wonderful writer who always manages to take my breath away. SF Site on Book of Shadows
