Wild and Wicked Things (Hardback)Francesca May (author)
Gloriously entertaining and drenched in magic and illicit passions, this spellbinding fantasy debut novel follows a young woman in the wake of the First World War as she becomes sucked into the glittering but deadly world of an infamous society hostess.
In the aftermath of the First World War, a young woman gets swept into a glittering world filled with illicit magic, romance, blood debts and murder in this lush and decadent debut novel.
On Crow Island, people whispered, real magic lurked just below the surface. But Annie Mason never expected her enigmatic new neighbour to be a witch.
When she witnesses a confrontation between her best friend Bea and the infamous Emmeline Delacroix at one of Emmeline's extravagantly illicit parties, Annie is drawn into a glittering, haunted world. A world where magic can buy what money cannot; a world where the consequence of a forbidden blood bargain might be death.
