MORE WITCHES: The National Post summed up the response to Ami’s last novel best: “One cannot help but want to spend more time in the company of these witches.”
A WONDROUS READ: Full of haunting finesse, or as Ami says, “Shirley Jackson meets Edith Wharton.”
A CHARMING PACKAGE: Adorned with period imagery, spells and incantations, and even a seasonal recipe or two.
Praise for The Witches of New York:
“Old New York shows its magic and its darkness in McKay’s latest novel…. [A] remarkable cast of characters…. McKay has crafted a stunning work that bridges the gap between historical and contemporary women’s issues. The novel is ambitious in its scope yet still delves deep into the thoughts and motivations of characters who normally exist on society’s outskirts—or even beyond the earthly realm…. McKay’s elegant prose bridges the gap between the real world and the spiritual realm with skill and compassion. A sprawling tale of persecution and hysteria set in the vivid world of New York City’s Victorian era.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred)
“Wonderful novel…. McKay seamlessly combines several plots and juggles a large cast with grace. Skillful worldbuilding, fascinating characters, and a suspenseful plot make McKay’s novel an enchanting, can’t-put-down delight. The door is left open for a sequel, and readers will hope McKay takes Adelaide, Eleanor, and Beatrice on further adventures of witchery and self-determination.”—Publishers Weekly (starred)
“[An] enchanting novel, the characterization is particularly adept…. The writing…is woven together with depth and intensity into a vibrant tapestry…. Highly recommended.”—Booklist (starred)
“A dark, atmospheric, and feminist story of three women in New York City’s Gilded Age, each determined to thrive in a society hell-bent on keeping them down, and using their coven to do so.”—Buzzfeed
“An excellent read.”—Bustle
