This is the perfect book to curl up with for an evening of magical self-indulgence. Just don't leave it lying around, or you'll find someone else has made off with it.
Delicious Read! Nov 5, 2007
This book is a delicious read from the first page to the last. Kate Bousfield creates a world so enticing, I might just want to start my own "Coven of One".
Pure Magic Nov 5, 2007
A delightful story of Dorcas Fleming, a simple hedgewitch - at least that's what Dorcas thinks. But as Dorcas travels to the heathen Southern lands, so her challenges grow and Dorcas must grow into her own truth too - she is much, much more than just a simple hedgewitch...
Coven of One is an enthralling read that captivates from the first page and holds one right through to the end. With a vivid cast of colourful characters, the book provides a unique insight into the world of paganism and witchcraft through a story which contains humour, love and adventure.
Coven of One will appeal to adults and young adults alike.
You Don't Have to Like Witchfare to Like Coven of One Nov 4, 2007
Coven of One was a surprise to me. I thought there'd be burnings at the stake or drownings in the local bog, but this book has none of that. This is the story of a newly minted hedge witch whose first assignment is to ply her trade in a witch-fearing, remote fishing village where trouble is afoot. Big trouble.
The village will ultimately need much more from Dorcas Fleming than her powerful potions and extraordinary healing skills.
Does she possess that pointy hat just as a fashion statement, or can she deliver?
The characters in Coven of One, including Dorcas, who is very much a woman (alone!), as well as a hedge witch, are strong and believable.
