FROM GOODREADS:  Everyone in Ballyfran has a secret, and that is what binds them together…

Fifteen-year-old twins Madeline and Catlin move to a new life in Ballyfran, a strange isolated town, a place where, for the last sixty years, teenage girls have gone missing in the surrounding mountains.

As distance grows between the twins - as Catlin falls in love, and Madeline begins to understand her own nascent witchcraft - Madeline discovers that Ballyfrann is a place full of predators. Not only foxes, owls and crows, but also supernatural beings who for many generations have congregated here to escape persecution. When Catlin falls into the gravest danger of all, Madeline must ask herself who she really is, and who she wants to be - or rather, who she might have to become to save her sister.

Dark and otherworldly, this is an enthralling story about the bond between sisters and the sacrifices we make for those we care about the most. For fans of Frances Hardinge and Laure Eve. 

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  First of all I love the cover.  I think it's gorgeous.  I am also always in for topics of witches and this one seems to have a Gothic feel to it as well.

WHAT BOOK CAN'T YOU WAIT FOR THIS WEEK???

  7. I love the cover too. And I find it interesting that it says for fans of Laure Eve. Her 2 books: The Graces and The Curses were interesting family/friends dynamics. I'll have to add this one to my TBR. Thanks for sharing.
