Reading Quest » The Witch's Heart by Genevieve Gornichec


I’m thrilled to have had the chance to read an eARC of The Witch’s Heart by Genevieve Gornichec and YOU GUYS!!!

This book was absolutely incredible. I’m not sure the experience can be adequately put into words, but I’m going to give it my best shot. :)

The Witch’s Heart features a captivating plot, an expansive cast of characters, incredible dialogue, and it abounds with humor and heart. It takes the broad strokes of mythology you’re familiar with and humanizes it, shaping it into a fascinating perspective that roots you in its grasp and pulls you along to the riveting, powerful ending.

Normally in a premise that covers such an expansive timeframe, I would feel distanced from the characters and story, but that couldn’t have been further from the case with The Witch’s Heart. Gornichec effortlessly traverses time and space with incredible pacing, prose, and stylistic choices, while maintaining a deep and thoughtful connection to the main character Angrboda, whose own keen emotional intelligence allows the reader insight into the amazing cast of characters she interacts with.

Really, I can’t use the word “incredible” enough! It’s one of those books that holds a section of your brain hostage and pesters you until you finish it, then sticks with you for a long time after.

Bravo to Gornichec on this fantastic debut. I can’t wait to see what she writes next!

The Witch’s Heart is out February 9th, available for pre-order now. Make sure you follow @gengornichec for updates!
