A darkly spellbinding tale of female empowerment steeped in Welsh mythology and Arthurian legend.

'I tried to keep you safe, but I see now that I can't. They won't stop until they have you . . .'

When Ivy's search for her mother draws her to a remote Welsh isle, she uncovers a dark secret about her past.

An ancient and corrupt power is stalking Ivy, and her only chance of survival is to look deep within herself. For not every story in legend is true, and some evils are not what they seem.

An unputdownable novel steeped in Welsh mythology and Arthurian legend.


Waking the Witch honestly feels like Rachel Burge reached into my head and found the things I wanted to read. Maybe I'm used to Arthurian retellings that more often explore the Knights and King Arthur, so I was pleasantly surprised that this explored the women's side of the story. - Bryony, The Indecisive Readers - Instagram

Wow. Just wow. Absolutely fantastic read from start to finish. On my top Author list - can literally not fault the writing or the story one bit. - Katie, Readersroost

"A compellingly fresh and spooky take on an age-old story."—Kirkus Reviews
