The second novel in the Winter trilogy, this follows the critically acclaimed debut A Witch in Winter.
'Ruth Warburton is going to take the YA market by storm. A Witch in Winter is a thoroughly enchanting read!' - Jade, at Ink Scratchers
'One of my most highly anticipated 2012 reads...' - Brodie of Eleusinian Mysteries
'It's a great read, steeped in witchcraft, with a steamy romance, feisty leads and a brooding coastal setting.' - The Bookseller
'Anna's reactions to the events were pretty much how I imagine I'd react, which made it easy to love her... The love story was so fantastically different, I loved the idea of it and it was so well executed... The ultimate battle was amazing, the enemy was one that I actually found quite scary, and the solution was neither easy nor lazy. It has everything you'd expect from a paranormal YA, but it avoids the cliches and predictability...' - Cait from The Cait Files

Ruth Warburton grew up on the south coast of England and went on to study English at the University of Manchester, where she developed a fascination with Old English and Middle English texts. While researching A WITCH IN WINTER she found herself returning to them, in particular BEOWULF and LE MORTE D'ARTHUR, and seeds from these mixed with ancient Mesopotamian demons, Voodoo spells, Tudor superstitions and 15th century witch-hunting guides, to create the Winter Trilogy. Ruth is a publicist for adult fiction at Random House and lives in North London.More About Ruth Warburton
