Competition: Win a Copy of Syd Moore's Latest Book

April 21, 2017 by

We're giving you the chance to win a copy of Strange Magic - the latest book from Essex author Syd Moore.

Rosie Strange doesn't believe in ghosts or witches. Not at all. So it’s no surprise that when she inherits the ramshackle Essex Witch Museum from her grandfather Septimus, her first thought is to sell it and run.

Still, the museum exerts a curious pull. There’s the eccentric academic who asks for her help in tracking down the bones of Ursula Cadence, a witch long since put to death.

And there’s curator Sam Stone, a man about whom Rosie can’t decide if he’s tiresomely annoying or extremely captivating. Her plans to sell the museum might be delayed, just for a while.

Soon Rosie and Sam find themselves embroiled in a centuries-old mystery, involving demonic possession, a missing skeleton and a local witch hunt in which the evils of the past come with their own real, and very present, danger. Inspired by the real-life epidemic of witch hunts that broke out in the village of St Osyth in sixteenth-century Essex, STRANGE MAGIC is the first in a new series about witches, magic …and Essex Girls.
