Twister by name, Twister by nature..
This is the story of a brave, bright girl; a witch who lives in the woods; a necklace that turns you into a wolf; a rainstorm or a rushing river; and a spine-chilling villain who will stop at nothing to seize it…
After the disappearance of her father six months, three days and four hours ago, Twister - named after being born in a storm - sets out to find her Pa, using a mix of a mysterious letter, a magical necklace and the help of a ‘medicine guide’ called Maymay. Whilst out and about searching for clues to bring her father back home, she comes across a cottage in the middle of Holler Woods, a place where danger lurks and darkness descends. Enter Maymay - a caretaker of knowledge? A medicine guide? A witch? A character, no doubt, who could take on a whole new story of her own.
Twister is no ordinary character. She’s every inch of what a story’s heroine should be and as her birth name suggests, she is a full force. A girl with fire in her belly with a gritty tenacity and a gutsy heart and soul, albeit with a tinge of emotional vulnerability about her; she is just the gust of fresh air we all need.
Deliciously, dangerously dark and thrumming with plot twists and turns aplenty, this is one-of-a-kind fantasy at its frenzied, fictional and feisty finest.
