Bold palette of limited colors gives An Embarrassment of Witches an eye-catching look that feels contemporary but stands out from the crowd.
The Harry Potter generation has grown up! Goldstein & Jordan’s witty worldbuilding creates an irresistible blend of magical fantasy and real-world millennial/Gen-Z concerns, in the tradition of Lev Grossman’s The Magicians (now a hit TV series), Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim, Molly Ostertag’s The Witch Boy, and Carolyn Nowak’s Girl Town.
