For as long as she can remember, Kita has been told dreadful stories of the witches at Witch Crag. They steal girls and mutilate bodies, reanimate the dead and have power over the crows. But in her life among the Sheepmen where the sheep are prized higher than the people, where bonds are discouraged and basic mating the only form of relationships, Kita can’t help but wonder if the life with the witches would be a lesser of two evils.
When Kita is brought in close contact with a witch, she is convinced they are not as bad as the stories say. She begins to wonder if they were started by the witches themselves as a form of protection.
Taking an enormous risk, Kita escapes her tribe with two friends in search of the Crag. Along the way they encounter a danger greater than any of them have ever considered, and know if they are to survive, then the tribes must unite with the witches and stand against their common enemy.
Witch Crag was an awesome adventure story. I loved the friendships Kita formed, first with Quainy and Riff in her tribe, and later with the witches. Kita herself is the perfect book heroine. You care about her, cheer her on, hope she stays safe.
This is the kind of book with a little bit of everything. Romance, friendship, mystery, adventure. There is something for everyone and with such a luring cover, is sure to reach a lot of people.
