Tonight, I burn is a debut fantasy novel by Katharine Adams. She has woven an enthralling plot of Deathscapes, threads of fate, betrayal, and love, following the life of Thorn-witch Penny Albright. Trying to save her sister, Penny needs to discover where her heart really lies, as she falls in love with a man of Death, and a woman of Life. Exploring a battle of politics through magical rebellion, Katharine Adams immerses you in the story of Halstett and the witches within its walls. An exceptionally entrancing magical fantasy.
A witch with the power to walk between the realms of Life and Death finds herself at the centre of a magical rebellion - and a dangerous romance - that could destroy her coven and her soul in this dark and decadent debut. Perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Leigh Bardugo, and Chloe Gong.
Thorns, Tides, Embers, Storms and Ores. All five covens are bound in servitude to the tyrant High Warden of Halstett.
Penny Albright is a daughter of the thorn coven, forced to patrol the veil between the realms of Life and Death, keeping it safe and whole. Each night, one thorn witch - and only one - must cross the veil by burning at the stake. Each morning, that witch returns with the help of their magical lifeline. Failure to follow the rules of Death risks them all.
When Penny's favourite sister doesn't return from Death, Penny breaks the rules. She burns in secret.
Determined to find her sister, Penny makes a deal with the devastating Lord Malin who she meets in Death. Someone who shouldn't be there at all. This bargain leads her to Alice, a mysterious captive prophet, and to a rebellion against the High Warden brewing in the shadows of their city. Penny soon learns all is not as it seems in Life or Death. And as her world splits between her growing love for the ethereal Alice in Life and her attraction to the seductive Malin in Death she'll face a devastating choice.
Because it's not just her sister's life that hangs in the balance. It's the fate of all magic.
All it takes is one witch - and one spark - to set the world ablaze.
