I received an Advance Reader Copy of this book from St. Martin’s Press for an honest review.
Tilda Fordwells is still not used to living in her new house alone. The electricity never seems to stay on and her phobias prevent her from going too far from home, but her pride keeps her from moving back in with her parents. However, as she begins to meet her eclectic neighbors, she finds that she has a lot to learn about the ancient lake that she lives by.
Woven through the novel is the story of Seren Arianaidd, a witch from the area in 900 AD. Seren is met with much disapproval from her village on the crannog (a man-made island), but she is only interested in serving Prince Brynach. When she has a vision of the crannog under fire, she warns of a betrayal of those closest to Prince Brynach.
Tilda and Seren’s lives are somehow woven together, but it’s up to Tilda to figure out why strange things are happening around her — before someone gets hurt. The Silver Witch is a Celtic paranormal fantasy with twists that will leave you reeling.
