The Invocations

The Invocations by Krystal Sutherland (Penguin Books) PB RRP $24.99 ISBN 780143777410

Here is a twisted modern horror fairy tale pulsing with feminist rage. There are three girls and one supernatural killer on the loose.

In a world where only women can use magic and the men who know about it seek to eradicate them, three lonely teenager girls – one cursed, one hunted, one out for revenge – team up to track down and take out a brutal killer.

Set in contemporary London, this is an original work by Sutherland in which curse-writers and magic exist alongside the everyday, and three very different but equally compelling characters must team up to encounter the supernatural and prevail.

Sutherland’s books have been published in more than twenty countries and nominated for the Carnegie Medal and YA Book Prize, among others. Originally from Australia, Sutherland now calls London home.
