Hammer of Witches
By Shana Mlawski

An engaging, magical adventure set against the historical backdrop of Columbus’ westward voyage. . . Mlawski’s central characters are imaginative and well-developed, and her swashbuckling pace and intriguing plotting keep readers at seat’s edge.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Stories come alive in this rousing historical fantasy. . . a fast-paced coming-of-age adventure.” —Publishers Weekly

"Mlawski is creative and daring in her YA debut, blending genres to craft an informative and literary historical fantasy... a lively read for fantasy buffs." —School Library Journal

“Mlawski's magical take on the exploration of the New World is a dazzling, richly imagined tale about history, legend, and the fantastic power of story.” —Diana Peterfreund, author of For Darkness Shows the Stars

“HAMMER OF WITCHES is everything I crave in a story — magic, adventure, danger, depth, a rich historical setting, and an irresistibly charming hero. What a fantastic voyage!” —Lesley Livingston, author of Wondrous Strange

“HAMMER OF WITCHES is a historical revelation — an eye-opening magical carpet ride that takes the reader over the ocean and through the woods to an ancient time, full of beauty and grace, and the ever-present conflict between man's spirituality and his natural brutality.” —Guadalupe Garcia McCall, Pura Belpre Award winner and Andre Norton Award nominee

A truly enjoyable energetic tale, a hero's journey that is filled with as much magic — and wry humor — as I've ever seen crammed into one story.”   —Joseph Bruchac, author of Wolf Mark and Skeleton Man
