The Price Guide to the Occult

author: Leslye Walton

When Rona Blackburn landed on Anathema Island more than a century ago, guilt and fear led the island’s original eight settlers to burn “the witch” out of her home. So Rona cursed them. More than a century later, all Nor Blackburn wants is to live an unremarkable teenage life. Her supernatural powers, if they can be called that, are unexceptional. And her love life is nonexistent, which means she might escape the perverse side effect of the matriarch’s backfiring curse. But when a mysterious book penned by Nor’s own mother comes out, promising to cast any spell for the right price, Nor senses a storm coming and is pretty sure she’ll be smack in the eye of it. In her second novel, Leslye Walton spins a dark, mesmerizing tale of a girl stumbling along the path toward self-acceptance and first love, even as the Price Guide’s malevolent author looms and threatens to strangle any hope for happiness. Now in a paperback edition with a striking new cover.

“A lyrical and robust multigenerational story. . . . Walton weaves a rewardingly complex tale that brims with suspense and romance.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
