Description

A MAGICAL SECRET. A MYTHICAL HUNT. AND A LOVE THAT COULD RISK EVERYTHING.

In the dark, gothic town of Wickdon, Maggie Welty lives in an old creaking manor. Maggie's mother is an alchemist who has recently left town, leaving Maggie with just her bloodhound for company. But when Maggie spots a legendary ancient fox-creature on her porch, her fate is changed forever. Whoever tracks down and kills the hala in the Halfmoon Hunt will earn fame and riches - and if Maggie wins the hunt, she knows her mother will want to celebrate her. This is her chance to bring her home.

But the rules state that only teams of two can join the hunt, and while Maggie is known as the best sharpshooter in town, she needs an alchemist.

Enter Wes Winters. He isn't an alchemist ... yet. Fired from every apprenticeship he's landed, this is his last chance.

Maggie and Wes make an unlikely team - a charismatic but troubled boy, and a girl who has endured life on the outskirts of a town that never welcomed her. But as the hunt takes over, the pair are drawn together as they uncover a darker magic that may put everything they hold dear in peril...



A rich and tender YA fantasy love story. Perfect for fans of Sorcery of Thorns and Finbar Hawkins.

I really loved Allison Saft’s debut novel which is why I was really excited to read A Far Wilder Magic. I found myself loving this one too. This is just as beautiful and stunningly written as DCTN, if not more. AFWM reads like the most wonderful, cozy fantasy. The world building is nothing too complex and is done in a way which is very easy to understand. Saft’s writing is utterly gorgeous and I found myself loving the way things were described. The small town setting, the alchemy and the science behind it.

Our main characters, Wes and Margaret were both so determined in their own way. I also felt that these two were two sides of the same coin; Wes wants to help his family in anyway he can. Margaret wants to put her family together again. I enjoyed seeing their relationship grow, from them becoming reluctant partners and then slowly falling in love. The pacing was also just perfect and the ending….it was perfect.

All in all, I highly recommend A Far Wilder Magic and hope that more people fall in love with this wonderful story!

Wow!! I loved this! Filled with amazingly filled out and well realised, interesting characters. My only complaint was that this book wasn’t longer, I wish I could have stayed in the world forever
