IT’S 1997. VIOLET IS A NEW STUDENT AT ELM HOLLOW ACADEMY AND DESPERATE TO FIT IN.

Quiet, artistic, unremarkable. When invited to an advanced study group by her alluring art teacher, Annabel, she is at once terrified and delighted.

There she meets Robin, Grace, and Alex: charismatic outsiders who invite her into their clique.

But once the study sessions on the school’s history of seventeenth-century witchcraft and magic become more than just theory, Violet must decide what she’s prepared to do in order to stay popular.

And maybe she’ll solve the mystery of what happened to a former member of their group. The one who went missing.

SUNDAY TIMES

‘A spell-binding debut that examines the dark heart of friendship, obsession, and revenge. I was bewitched by Katie Lowe's deliciously chilling storytelling. THE FURIES is a compulsive and unsettling read, dripping in atmosphere and suspense’
Lucy Clarke, bestselling author of YOU LET ME IN

‘THE FURIES can be described as PREP meets THE CRAFT, while managing to be a dark, weird creature all of its own. Witches, murder, and teenage girls – this is the book of my dreams. I am obsessed’
Louise O’Neill, bestselling author of ONLY EVER YOURS

‘THE FURIES is mesmerising, disturbing and completely addictive – it's a brilliant book about the power, vulnerability and rage of teenage girls, and it couldn't feel more timely. Lowe's beautiful prose is thrillingly, chillingly dark, and Violet is the sort of heroine that you want to throw yourself down the rabbit hole with – you know that she's going somewhere terrifying but you have to follow her journey’
Daisy Buchanan, author of THE SISTERHOOD

‘Witchcraft, teenage angst, friendship, murder. A beautifully-paced debut with hints of THE SECRET HISTORY. Intense, stylish, and deliciously dark’
Will Dean, author of DARK PINES

‘THE FURIES is a haunting tale of angry, young women, the fates they hold and furies they possess. Katie Lowe steers her juggernaut through twists of madness, revenge and murder to a finish that resonates deeply. It still hasn’t left me’
Peter Filardi, screenwriter of THE CRAFT
