Praise for The Near Witch

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

– Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, NYT bestselling authors of Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness

“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

“This highly atmospheric debut crackles with tension and has a shivery horror tang.”


“Victoria Schwab skillfully combines mystery, adventure, and romance in her debut novel The Near Witch.”

“As soon as I finished the book, I kept recommending it to people by comparing it to something that would be written by Neil Gaiman. I 100% stand by that. This book belongs on the shelves next to writers just Gaiman or Diana Wynne Jones. High praise that is totally deserved!”
Allison at The Allure of Books

“Beautifully written, masterful storytelling, and poetic prose almost too beautiful not to be a song–this novel soars! Part fairy tale, part ghost story, part fantasy, part romance, part a tale of witches, The Near Witch is a pleasurable jaunt. Debut author Victoria Schwab weaves this tale magically and shows her writing chops.”
Pamela at What We’re Reading

“Schwab has evoked a story that will have readers reading into the night, hungry to solve the mystery of the witch of Near. The Near Witch is a story that seems to unfold as organically as the wilderness it is set in. It is destined to become a classic.”
Courtney at Stiletto Storytime

“There are books I like that most people hate. There are books everyone loved, which never appealed to me. And then there is That Book. The one that manages to draw you in from the very first line, and keep you captive. The one that takes simple words and weaves them into a seamless tapestry of colour and feeling. The Near Witch is That Book.”
