Waterstones Says

A coven of queer misfits investigate the sinister demise of a high school quarterback amidst rumours of a mythical wish-granting creature in this spine-tingling LGBTQ+ dark romance.

A heart-breaking, LGBTQ dark romance for young adults, with star-crossed lovers – perfect for fans of V.E.Schwab and 90s cult-classic The Craft.

November 1999, North Dana, Massachusetts. The body of Bastion Attia – high school quarterback, secret witch, and Nesbit Nuñez’s even-more-secret boyfriend – is discovered at the edge of Stepwood Cemetery. As Nesbit and his coven of queer misfits investigate Bastion’s death they discover local folktales of Mr. Nous, a terrifying wish-granting creature, one whose gifts come at a terrible price.The coven must do battle against an age-old evil before it strikes again …

Now, Conjurers is a wildly original, spinechilling YA debut about queer found family and a love that outlasts death.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This book is charm itself. It's a high-octane high-camp horror funfair that is so smart and so edgy and funny and heartfelt and loving that I think teens who love it now will still pull it off the shelf when they are 40. Now, Conjurers is an evening with a movie from Blockbuster that's rated slightly too high for you to have legally rented it and the biggest, trashiest bag of popcorn, staying up until 3 AM with your friends and then having really savage nightmares afterwards for a week.’ - Tamsyn Muir, author of Gideon the Ninth

‘A rollicking and thoughtful take on the be-careful-what-you-wish-for trope.This novel is an easy-to-read occult thriller inspired by ’90s cult classics with a likable cast of cool, queer, Wiccan goth heroes. Kölsch holistically integrates serious issues, such as grief, neurological differences, religion and faith, parental abuse, and a variety of intersectional queer identities, with a deft touch that keeps the book both eerie and light in pleasantly equal measure.' - Kirkus starred review

‘This supernatural thriller takes characters and readers alike on an emotional roller coaster of shocking revelations, culminating in a cathartic, action-packed climax … Kölsch spins together a web of hidden agendas, secret histories, a terrifying otherworldly antagonist, and real-world horrors of child abuse and homophobia into a dark and chilling debut.’ - Publishing Weekly

'An absolute 90s, technicolor, fever dream of a novel. Now, Conjurers takes readers on a ride that is, at once, tender and terrifying. I'd follow Nesbit and the North Coven anywhere.’ - Sasha Peyton Smith, NYT bestselling author of The Witch Haven

“A 90s witchy cracker of a book”

I want to thank the publishers for sending me a copy - this was right up my street!

I loved the setting of the late 90s and the queer representation, but I felt like it was possibly too long, and could have gone... More
