Praise for this book

"I love it when I've no idea where a story is going to take me, and Now,Conjurers took me to some dark places, but I knew that I was in sure hands with Freddie's writing. This was an absolutely wild ride, full of scares and horror as well as love and friendship." - Sally Green

"This book is CHARM ITSELF. It's a high-octane high-camp horror funfair that is so smart and so edgy and funny and heartfelt and loving that I think teens who love it now will still pull it off the shelf when they are 40. Now, Conjurers is an evening with a movie from Blockbuster that's rated slightly too high for you to have legally rented it and the biggest, trashiest bag of popcorn, staying up until 3 AM with your friends and then having really savage nightmares afterwards for a week." - Tamsyn Muir

"An absolute 90s, technicolor, fever dream of a novel. Now, Conjurers takes readers on a ride that is, at once, tender and terrifying. I'd follow Nesbit and the North Coven anywhere." - Sasha Peyton Smith
