One of the most anticipated titles of 2019, The Furies is a haunting story of obsession, witchcraft and murder from debut author Katie Lowe.
Violet is returning home, back to the sleepy coastal town which holds so many memories. In 1998, after a tragic accident claimed the lives of her father and sister, she joins Elm Hollow Academy, a private girls’ school with an unpleasant history of 17th century witch trials. There she is drawn to Robin, Grace, Alex and their charismatic teacher, Annabel; she is invited to join them in their advanced study group. Annabel claims her classes aren’t related to ancient rites and rituals. However, the more the girls learn, the more they start to believe that magic is real, and that together they can harness it. But when the body of a former member of the society is found on campus, fingers are pointed at those closest to her. Leading Violet to wonder whether she can trust her friends, teachers, or even herself.
“A spell-binding debut that examines the dark heart of friendship, obsession, and revenge.” LUCY CLARKE, author of You Let Me In
