Sarah Broadhurst's view...

It starts with what could be a murder; a magician’s theatrical trick gone fatally wrong. It continues into a magic-laced family drama. It ends up as a vision-fuelled thriller full of mystery and revenge. A captivating read as the highly engaging narrator Reve searches for safety for his daughters and answers to her strange visions. Her family history turns out to be even more bizarre than a woman descended from witches can believe. She has always known there is real magic in the world and in her blood, but how to harness that magic is another matter. Forget your preconceptions, suspend your disbelief and enjoy this vibrant and exciting start to what should be a marvellous series.

If you like Chrysler Szarlan you might also like to read books by Diana Gabaldon, Deborah Harkness and Helen Oyeyemi.

Synopsis

The Hawley Book of the Dead by Chrysler Szarlan

In the tradition of The Night Circus and A Discovery of Witches, The Hawley Book of the Dead is the kind of novel that makes you believe that magic really exists. An old house surrounded by acres of forest. A place of secrets, mysteries and magic. This is where Reve Dyer hopes to keep herself and her children safe. But a mysterious figure has haunted Reve for over a decade. And now Reve knows that this person is on her trail again. In Hawley, where the magic of her ancestors reigns, Reve must unlock the secrets of the Hawley Book of the Dead before it's too late...
