Nature of Witches ARC Review
Nature of Witches by Rachel Griffin
For centuries, witches have maintained the climate, their power from the sun peaking in the season of their birth. But now their control is faltering as the atmosphere becomes more erratic. All hope lies with Clara, an Everwitch whose rare magic is tied to every season.
In Autumn, Clara wants nothing to do with her power. It's wild and volatile, and the price of her magic―losing the ones she loves―is too high, despite the need to control the increasingly dangerous weather.
In Winter, the world is on the precipice of disaster. Fires burn, storms rage, and Clara accepts that she's the only one who can make a difference.
In Spring, she falls for Sang, the witch training her. As her magic grows, so do her feelings, until she's terrified Sang will be the next one she loses.
In Summer, Clara must choose between her power and her happiness, her duty and the people she loves... before she loses Sang, her magic, and thrusts the world into chaos.
For a tale that starts with so much pain, this is truly a remarkable story of self-discovery, new forms of magic, and how important the relationships with the people you love are.
This book had everything in it from a wonderful bisexual protagonist and a diverse cast of characters to a truly original take on witches and their magic.
This book was so beautifully written, the words flowed off the page and straight to my heart, and is one of my favorite books of 2021.
I am in complete shock that this is a debut novel as it reads like it was written by a seasoned writer.
I highly recommend you pre-order this wonderful book.
