Product description

Review

Cleaving to the sensibility of the original, this love letter to Wuthering Heights is for fans of genuine Victorian Gothic...Bronte devotees will swoon. For those who take their romance tumultuous and doomed.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

Croggon returns with an homage to Wuthering Heights, trading the English moors of the original for the remote northern wilds of Elbasa, a land of powerful wizards and strict rules concerning vendetta...In language and pitch, the pastiche is spot on.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Product Description

Lina is enchanting, vibrant but wilful. And her eyes betray her for what she truly is – a witch. With her childhood companion, Damek, she has grown up privileged and spoiled and the pair are devoted to each other to the point of obsession. But times are changing. Vendetta is coming. And tragedy is stalking the halls of the Red House.

Black Spring is a stunning new novel by award-winning Australian poet and author Alison Croggon. Inspired by the Gothic horror classic Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, this gripping story of love, lust, magic and betrayal is the perfect book for young adult fiction readers and fans of sophisticated fantasy. Alison can be found online: http://www.alisoncroggon.com/

“Brontë devotees will swoon.” – Kirkus Reviews

“Croggon has come up with a story that is rich and beautifully complicated, layered with intriguing politics, told by well-crafted characters.” – Australian Book Review

“In language and pitch, the pastiche is spot on … Devotees of Brontë’s original work will enjoy Croggon’s amplification of the story’s supernatural elements.” – Publisher’s Weekly

“A great book for young adults who would like something that combines a fantasy tale with the feel of a classic.” – Bookseller+Publisher
