“Kathleen Kaufman is no stranger to the weird and supernatural, and HAG appears to have the occult running deep in its veins.”
Something awakens, secluded in the rocky Scottish cliffs. A line of descendants from an ancient matriarchal power have been called into action … but why?
Through the centuries, daughters of the lowland hag, the Cailleach, live through lifetimes in a world of hatred, brutality, superstition, and death, searching for purpose. Half remembered pasts, destinies denied, the daughters are feared from their supernatural abilities to heal the sick, gaze upon the future, and when threatened, to cause pain and destruction.
The waves pound the shore, every generation of the Cailleach awaiting a homecoming to bring it all full circle.
Why we’re excited about this book:
Witches are a major part of horror folklore, and when a writer comes along and gives them a serious treatment beyond the usual stereotypical trappings, it’s time to take notice. Kathleen Kaufman is no stranger to the weird and supernatural, and Hag appears to have the occult running deep in its veins. The author of The Tree Museum and The Lairdbalor, her work can also be found at The Huffington Post. Turner Publishing will release Hag by Kathleen Kaufman 2 October 2018, and is available for pre-order.
