Briony has a secret. She believes her secret killed her stepmother, destroyed her twin sister's mind, and threatens all the children in the Swampsea. She yearns to be rid of her terrible secret, but risks being hanged if she tells a soul. That's what happens to witches: They're hanged by the neck until dead.

Then Eldric arrives - Eldric with his golden mane and lion eyes and electric energy - and he refuses to believe anything dark about Briony. But he wonders what's been buried beneath her self-hatred, hidden in Rose's mangled thoughts, and whispered about by the Old Ones. And Briony wonders how Eldric can make her want to cry.

Especially when everyone knows witches can't cry.

A wild, haunting mystery and romance that is as beautifully written as it is captivating.

    " I can't say I really liked it but...was drawn in. Written in the first person Billingsley's prose is almost poetic. A strange dark exploration of the tug of the "old ways" on nature, spirits, love in a time when these ideas were threatened by "progress". "

    " Usually not the type of book I like, but Briney is a great, funny spunky character. Just the right mix of mystery, humor and romance. "

    " This book was a refreshing change from the average young adult paranormal genre. What sets this book above others is the writing which is rich in vocabulary and thoughtful in its articulation. Nominated for the National Book Award, it presents an intriguing premise and an unforgettable heroine. The protagonist's evolution of self perception was especially interesting to read about. I would recommend this book to adults and teens alike. "
