Oh Holy Wow. THE NEAR WITCH’s 2nd Blurb.


So, a little while back I had the extreme pleasure of sharing with you THE NEAR WITCH’s first blurb. To refresh your memory, it goes a little something like this:

“Romantic, haunting, and truly original—The Near Witch cast a spell on us from the very first page.”

— Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, New York Times best-selling authors of Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness

I still get GIDDY reading that.


When you go to the bookstore this summer to pick up your pretty hardcover copy of THE NEAR WITCH, cuddle its glossy swirls and then turn it over, there will be TWO blurbs gracing the back cover (I have seen said back cover, and it is delicious).

I can finally share the second blurb!

And oh how it makes me swoon-y. Without further ado, blurb #2…

“Victoria Schwab has crafted a richly atmospheric and lyrical masterpiece. This novel mesmerized me from the first line to the last.”

—Carrie Ryan, New York Times best-selling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth

Excuse me while I die a little.

I honestly couldn’t ask for better blurbs. I have so much respect for these authors and their books, and I still get faint with glee at the thought of them reading, let alone enjoying, my little witchy book.

I’m so incredibly excited that THEY love it, and hope YOU will, too.

PS. No I’m probably not awake when this is posting. Twitter was sucking so I set this to post when my US people were likely to be around. Assume I am wandering through a world of starlight and sweet dreams, or suitably morbid and potentially book-inspiring ones…

PPS. I’ve never dreamt up a book. Yet. Thankfully.
