About the book

Some echo of her dark power courses through my veins…waiting to be released.

A Great Winged One will soon arise and cast his fearsome shadow upon the land. And just as Night slays Day, and Day slays Night, so also shall another Black Witch rise to meet him, her powers vast beyond imagining.

So foretells the greatest prophecy of the Gardnerian mages. Carnissa Gardner, the last prophesied Black Witch, drove back the enemy forces and saved her people during the Realm War. Now a new evil is on the horizon, and her granddaughter, Elloren, is believed to be Carnissa’s heir — but while she is the absolute image of her famous grandmother, Elloren is utterly devoid of power in a society that prizes magical ability above nearly all else.

When she is granted the opportunity to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an apothecary, Elloren is eager to join her brothers at the prestigious Verpax University and finally embrace a destiny of her own, free from the shadow of her grandmother’s legacy. But she soon realises that the University, which admits all manner of people — including the fire-wielding, winged Icarals, the sworn enemies of all Gardnerians — is an even more treacherous place for the granddaughter of the Black Witch.

“I absolutely loved The Black Witch… Maximum suspense, unusual magic — a whole new, thrilling approach to fantasy!” — Tamora Pierce, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Forest uses a richly imagined magical world to offer an uncompromising condemnation of prejudice and injustice." — Booklist, starred review

“The Black Witch is a refreshing, powerful young adult fantasy. This strong debut offers an uncompromising glimpse of world-altering politics amplified by a magical setting in which prejudice and discrimination cut both ways.” — Robin Hobb, New York Times bestselling author
