Publisher's Summary

Traveler, cleric, witch. The villagers in the sleepy hamlet of Lychford are divided. A supermarket wants to build a major branch on their border. Some welcome the employment opportunities while some object to the modernization of the local environment.

Judith Mawson (local crank) knows the truth - that Lychford lies on the boundary between two worlds and that the destruction of the border will open wide the gateways to malevolent beings beyond imagination. But if she is to have her voice heard, she's going to need the assistance of some unlikely allies....

    "Superb story and narration"

    This Novella is a relatively short listen but is well done in every aspect. The narrator is perfect for the story. If you like a good mystery where the protagonists discover that there is a world beside ours with occasional people crossing over in both directions you will enjoy this tale.

    "Fantasy and reality in a beautiful mix!"

    A beautiful story made even better by the reading done by Marisa Calin. Highly recommended short story - for me even better literary performance than the regular series Paul Cornell is famous for.

    "Nice afternoon listen"

    Bought this on a whim and I'm glad I did.

    It was a good story, albeit a short story and I think so much more could have been done, expanding into new chapters after the conclusion of this 'episode', going a little more into the lives of the three protagonists, but I was still happy to listen and found the performance of Marisa Calin very pleasant to listen to.
    My first Paul Cornell book and I'm happy to say it's not going to be my last. If you have an afternoon free and fancy doing as I did, sitting on the beach or in the garden listening then I highly recommend the Witches of Lychford

    "Brilliant listen"

    I love the way the author normalises the paranormal

    I really hope there's more of these to come as it's refreshing to have an all female lead with no bloody forced love interest

    "A very disappointing read"

    Perhaps it was just me, but I just could not make any sense out of this book. I was expecting a story about a tokd,ywns witches. But instead, I found myself lost in à story that was so very wandering and disjointed. I would tell you the plot of the story, but I do not feel thar I ever found one.When I was finished with this book ! I found myself totally unable to tell you about either the plot or the story line.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would! I liked the book so much I'd love for there to be more books to learn more about the 3 main people & the fairies.

    Story
    "A Timely Fantasy"
    What did you like most about Witches of Lychford?

    A great autumnal listen and a fantasy for our times. The story has blended flavours of Good Omens, The Sugar Queen & a Guardian Column by Owen Jones. A small town on the cross-roads of reality, a diverse trio of strong women including a bereaved Reverend, an elderly witch and a skeptic who was abducted by the fey stand in the way of all life collapsing. If you are not a fan of big business and austerity and do enjoy a good fantasy with a predictable but not too tidy end, I recommend this book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was a story that was easy to listen to in one or two sittings.
