The Nature of Witches
by Rachel Griffin
Sourcebooks, $17.99, 384pp
Published: June 2021

For centuries, witches have maintained the climate, but now their control is faltering as the atmosphere becomes more erratic; the storms, more destructive. All hope lies with Clara, a once-in-a-generation Everwitch whose magic is tied to every season.

In Autumn, Clara wants nothing to do with her power. It's wild and volatile, and the price of her magic-losing the ones she loves-is too high, despite the need to control the increasingly dangerous weather.

In Winter, the world is on the precipice of disaster. Fires burn, storms rage, and Clara accepts that she's the only one who can make a difference.

In Spring, she falls for Sang, the witch training her. As her magic grows, so do her feelings, until she's terrified Sang will be the next one she loses.

In Summer, Clara must choose between her power and her happiness, her duty and the people she loves...before she loses Sang, her magic, and thrusts the world into chaos.

In this young adult novel of magic and witches, Rachel Griffin has done something inventive. She's created a different viewpoint on how magic works, a fresh spin that revolves around the seasons and around how humans treat our planet. In her world, just like in the real world, the balance of nature is broken, humanity on the cusp of destroying themselves and the world. In this world, witches can make a difference but not enough and with everything hanging by a thread, they look to the only one who might be able to change things, Clara, a witch with the power of all ~~ Andrea Rittschof
