Oh, what a perfect way to start 2021 with this delightful, thrilling, juicy from the first page till the last novel! I'm always desiring more stories of Witches from a working-class perspective and with an eclectic range of diversity and Alix delivers thoroughly. This alternate reality feels authentic, and the clever injection of History in the form of Suffragists and the deplorable decision to leave out Black and Brown Women, combined with a piercing look at sweatshop conditions elevates this to that wonderful amalgamation of what makes reading pure Joy for me. The witchy use of well-known Nursery Rhymes and the interspersed and subversive Fairy Tales adds another rich layer to the Story of these complex, tenacious, courageous Sisters. All driving a plot that stays the course and delivers emphatically without flinching. I will definitely be reading more of Alix's work and if you're looking for that special wintertime book this might be the one.
