Lina is enchanting, vibrant but wilful. And her eyes betray her for what she truly is - a witch. With her childhood companion, Damek, she has grown up privileged and spoilt and the pair are devoted to each other to the point of obsession. But times are changing. Vendetta is coming. And tragedy is stalking the halls of the Red House.

A stunning new novel by Alison Croggon, inspired by the Gothic classic Wuthering Heights.
