Publisher's Summary

Lush and chilling, with razor-sharp edges and an iron core of hope, this bewitching, powerhouse novel of two girls fighting back against the violence the world visits on them will stun and enchant listeners.

Girls have been going missing in the woods....

When Natasha’s sister disappears, Natasha desperately turns to Della, a local girl rumored to be a witch, in the hopes that magic will bring her sister home.

But Della has her own secrets to hide. She thinks the beast who’s responsible for the disappearances is her own mother - who was turned into a terrible monster by magic gone wrong.

Natasha is angry. Della has little to lose. Both are each other’s only hope.

From the author of Ghost Wood Song, this eerie contemporary fantasy is perfect for fans of Wilder Girls and Bone Gap

Gripping and Suspenseful

This story kept me on my toes from the opening scene to the epilogue. It’s a thrilling mystery that weaves witchcraft and elemental magic into a thoughtful exploration of power and injustice. Waters does a wonderful job crafting the novel’s primary setting, ‘the Bend’, a wild space amidst a Tennessee nature park, and her inclusion of characters with diverse backgrounds and orientations is refreshing. The performance was well done, with different actors voicing Della and Natasha, the story’s two main characters. Definitely a worthwhile listen.

A Murder Mystery to sink your teeth into…

This book has absolutely enraptured me. Erica Waters has created a story that not only draws you in but keeps you to the end. The characters feel so real and multidimensional, even the ones who appear for moments. The truth of the mystery was revealed and I could feel my heart racing with these girls. The world is told in such wonderfully subtle ways as to be understood without slowing the pacing in any way. I don’t want to reveal too much, but if you enjoy queer characters absolutely kicking butt, this is the book for you.

twist and turns galore

loved this book and the narrator. not much romance between the characters which was a nice change of pace. I feel like the bend was its own character. very well written.
