NEW YORK TIMES bestseller Brand new edition of Victoria Schwab's long out-of-print, stunning debut.

The Near Witch is only an old story told to frighten children.

If the wind calls at night, you must not listen. The wind is lonely, and always looking for company.

There are no strangers in the town of Near.

These are the truths that Lexi has heard all her life.

But when an actual stranger, a boy who seems to fade like smoke, appears outside her home on the moor at night, she knows that at least one of these sayings is no longer true.

The next night, the children of Near start disappearing from their beds, and the mysterious boy falls under suspicion.

As the hunt for the children intensifies, so does Lexi's need to know about the witch that just might be more than a bedtime story, about the wind that seems to speak through the walls at night, and about the history of this nameless boy.

Part fairy tale, part love story, Victoria Schwab's debut novel is entirely original yet achingly familiar: a song you heard long ago, a whisper carried by the wind, and a dream you won't soon forget.

V.E. Schwab is the No.1 New York Times bestselling author of over ten books, including Vicious, The Near Witch and the Shades of Magic series, which was described as "a classic work of fantasy" by Deborah Harkness. It was one of Waterstones' Best Fantasy Books of 2015, The Guardian's Best Science Fiction novels, and a Telegraph choice. The Independent has called her "The natural successor to Diana Wynne Jones."

While I would say that this is definitely her weakest work, I still enjoyed this book a lot, and her writing style is something I tremendously enjoy and this, in my opinion, is as important as the story she's telling so there's really no way to give less than 4 stars :)

Eine wunderschöne Geschichte, die an ein düsteres Märchen erinnert! Der zauberhafte und doch lockere Schreibstil macht es einem fast unmöglich das Buch aus der Hand zu legen. Auch jetzt noch kann ich den Wind flüstern und singen hören.
