The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass

Overview

For readers of Nevernight and The Hazel Wood, enter a wicked cool fantasy world of witches and their assassins, where a group of renegades battle to capture the Heart of the Coven.

Even teenage assassins have dreams.

Eli isn’t just a teenage girl — she’s a made-thing the witches created to hunt down ghosts in the human world. Trained to kill with her seven living blades, Eli is a flawless machine, a deadly assassin. But when an assignment goes wrong, Eli starts to question everything she was taught about both worlds, the Coven, and her tyrannical witch-mother.

Terrified that she’ll be unmade for her mistake, Eli seeks refuge with a group of human and witch renegades. To earn her place, she must prove herself by capturing the Heart of the Coven. With the help of two humans, one motorcycle, and a girl who smells like the sea, Eli is going to get answers — and earn her freedom.

Reviews

A moving, lyrical debut. Fantasy readers will fall in love with Jerreat-Poole's sharp-tongued assassin and diverse, vividly rendered magical world.

Heather Fawcett, author of Even the Darkest Stars

Battle Angel Alita meets The Hazel Wood in this sharp-as-nails urban fable that grabs you immediately with its hooked claw and refuses to let go. Jerreat-Poole's prose crackles and sings on the page as a woven spell, carefully cast.
