I wasn't expecting this book to be so heartwrenching; there were several passages that were hard to read and others that made my blood boil. Fagan introduces, in the form of the novella’s narrator, a modern-day character named Iris from the summer of 2021, who tells Geillis that she ‘comes from a future where women are still persecuted for who they are and what they believe. Queda claro cómo fue el ataque que sufrió, el cual es totalmente injustificable, pero se da a entender que fue algo que se gestó con anterioridad a raíz de una serie de sucesos.

Rizzio brought out the best in Mina, as this has with Fagan, and I very much look forward to Alan Warner’s offering later this year. Will white people, realising that we are all one, stand shoulder to shoulder with Black Lives Matter activists? Much of the short book is a feminist outcry about the treatment of women by men, which is of course, perfectly justified and true, but I would have liked to have learned more of the historical context around witch trials in Scotland and so on.No me convenció la forma de mezclar magia y realidad, pero puede que otras personas consigan entender mejor su propósito. The Sunlight Pilgrims, her second novel, was shortlisted for the Royal Society of Literature Encore Award and the Saltire Fiction Book of the Year Award, and saw her win Scottish Author of the Year at the Herald Culture Awards. Hex is a visceral depiction of what happens when a society is consumed by fear and superstition, exploring how the terrible force of a king’s violent crusade against ordinary women can still be felt, right up to the present day. This is the first book by Jenni Fagan that I have read but I am already looking forward to diving into some more of her work, as well as looking forward to finding out a bit more about Scotland’s history in future Darkland Tales books.

The Darkland Tales series providing snippets into the grim history of Scotland have been some of my favourite pieces of fiction recently, and I can't wait to read the next installment. Geillis also had the misfortune to be able to assist women in child-birth and she was ‘ cursed with the ability to cure the ill’ by knowing which herbs and plants could be used to alleviate certain ailments.there is so much to be said not only about this particular story, but about all of the women and children who suffered such extreme notions of torture and death at the hands of men and their fearfulness for witches and powerful women.
