  • Solid debut!

    The Year of the Witching is an intriguing read. It kept my attention from beginning to end. It's religion and witchcraft based with a bit of action and hints of a romance. I enjoyed it. I loved watching the characters come into there own and embrace themselves. I definitely recommend it and look forward to reading more books by this author.

  • The horror genre has a new voice

    What a fantastic debut for Alexis Henderson! The Year of the Witching tells the terror filled story of Immanuelle, a young woman struggling to find a way to save the town that would see her burn. This book creates a new world filled with echoes of our own; a world rife with racism, injustice, greed, ignorance, and the oppression of women, using religion to excuse the vilest atrocities of the men who lust for power and control. This book goes beyond spooky. It’s a fully formed tale of horror. Trigger warnings for extreme violence, body horror, and sexual assault. I loved it! The writing was superb, the pacing was fast and exciting, the plot had so many compelling twists and turns I couldn’t wait to read what happened next. I wanted more from the ending which, in my opinion, is the book’s only real weakness. In the epilogue we get a small hint there may be a sequel but no confirmation. Sequel or not, I’m definitely reading the next book Alexis Henderson writes.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fantasy, Witches and Feminism

    This is a fantastic story of themes such as feminism, classism, misogyny and religion explored through fantasy. It was difficult for me to put the book down (which rarely happens). The main character discovers herself as she goes against all protocols to go to the forbidden “Darkwood,” discovering witches, her dead mother’s journal and a part of her identity that has been kept from since birth. A perfect fall/ Halloween read!

    Thanks for your feedback!
