"A potent spell of legacy and sisterhood...this eerie tale will keep readers up well into the night." 

–Rachel Griffin, New York Times Bestselling author of  THE NATURE OF WITCHES

Cordelia Bone's meticulously crafted life and career in Dallas are crashing down around her thanks to a philandering husband with criminal debts.


When her older, carefree sister, Eustace—a cannabis grower in Boulder, calls to inform her the great aunt they never met has finally died and they must travel to a small town in Connecticut to deal with the estate, she sees an opportunity to unload the house and save herself.


But once there, the sisters learn they are getting much more than they bargained for. The Victorian mansion they stand to inherit is bound in a dynasty trust controlled by their late aunt's aging attorney who insists they inhabit the house and retain it but keeps them in the dark about the peculiar rituals of their ancestors. Not to mention a sexy, tattooed groundskeeper with a shrouded past who refuses to leave the carriage house and a crypt full of dead relatives looming at the property line.


As both women grapple with their current predicament, they come face to face with a haunting family secret, the truth of what happened to their mother, and the enemy that's been stalking them from the shadows for generations. In a twisting torrent of terror and blood, the sisters must uncover the power within them to heal their fractured relationship, reverse their mysteriously declining health, and claim the lineage they wanted to escape but now must embrace if they are to survive at Bone Hill.

Trigger Warnings: Sudden death, mutilation, hauntings, animal cruelty, sexual content, drug use, language.



"A simmering, supernatural tale that conjures a brew of legacy, sisterhood, and Scandinavian witchcraft within a magnificent and malevolent house." 

–Katherine Harbour, author of the NIGHT AND NOTHING series

"This enchanting tale of two sisters who must come to terms with their family’s legacy before it comes to claim them is funny, suspenseful, and cinematic. With Morgyn’s fresh take on strange rituals, odd townspeople and gothic mansions, this tale will delight fans of Alice Hoffman. I read it in one sitting and wanted more! Ava Morgyn is a powerful new voice in magical realism." 

–Constance Sayers, Bestselling author of A WITCH IN TIME

"Wickedly wonderful, THE WITCHES OF BONE HILL is a delicious concoction of darkness, magic, and sisterhood. Ava Morgyn imbues her story with haunting sorcery all her own, making this compulsively readable new dynasty of powerful witches impossible to put down." 

–Paige Crutcher, author of THE ORPHAN WITCH and THE LOST WITCH
