""The dead are seldom silent. All that is required for them to be heard is that someone be willing to listen. I have been listening to the dead all my life."

Lilith is the daughter of the sixth Duke of Radnor. She is one of the most beautiful young women in London and engaged to the city’s most eligible bachelor. She is also a witch.

When her father dies, her hapless brother Freddie takes the title. But it is Lilith, instructed in the art of necromancy, who inherits their father’s role as Head Witch of the Lazarus Coven. And it is Lilith who must face the threat of the Sentinels, a powerful group of sorcerers intent on reclaiming the Elixir from the coven’s guardianship for their own dark purposes. Lilith knows the Lazarus creed: secrecy and silence. To abandon either would put both the coven and all she holds dear in grave danger. She has spent her life honoring it, right down to her charming fiancé and fellow witch, Viscount Louis Harcourt.

Until the day she meets Bram, a talented artist who is neither a witch nor a member of her class. With him, she must not be secret and silent. Despite her loyalty to the coven and duty to her family, Lilith cannot keep her life as a witch hidden from the man she loves.

To tell him will risk everything.

Spanning the opulence of Edwardian London and the dark days of World War I, The Midnight Witch is the third novel from New York Times bestselling author Paula Brackston."


S.M. Adams (SMAdamsAuthor) | 3 comments Sorry if this is a total newb question -- are we supposed to post about the book in this thread?

I just put a hold on the audiobook -- I'm next in line. Excited to read (listen) to this one. :-)

Started this one last night. So far, I'm loving Brackston's writing style, as well as choice of setting. Enjoying Lilith's character as well.

Interesting terminology to describe different worlds. Land of Day - living, Land of Night - benevolent spirits, The Darkness - malevolent spirits.

If you are someone who works with spirits, what terminology do you use?

I always refer to where spirits are as the astral or "The Lands". In my beliefs, I believe different lands to exist in the spirit world - forests, mountains, space, etc. I also believe any type of spirit can travel to any of those lands, demons living among fairies, for example. In my practice, I equally travel there to work with spirits and request their presence here.

I ended up not enjoying this one as much as The Witch's Daughter. The romance became a little too cheesy for my liking. Lilith started as a strong female protagonist, but I believe this changed by the end.
