Two sisters find themselves at odds in this breathtaking historical fantasy – and when one releases a dark spell, someone will have to burn. They are witches, after all.
Minna and Kaija live deep in the birchwoods of northern Norway, hiding in the shadows since their mother was burned at the stake thirteen years ago.
Sweet-tempered Kaijia remembers life before the fire—the friendships, the comfort and warmth of community. Her magic is quiet, mostly charms to heal cuts and bruises. She’d happily give it up to have a normal life. Minna, though, was raised in smoke. She’s a witch through and through: full of power and unafraid of it, wrath always simmering just below the surface.
When Kaija decides to return to the village where their mother died to make a new life for herself, Minna, in a rage, releases a curse to raze the community that’s taken everything from her. In doing so, she sets in motion a plot that could destroy Kaija and the new life she’s trying to build. But you can’t take back dark magic once it’s been released, and someone will have to burn. They are witches, after all.

"A perfect fall read, full of dark, foreboding curses and a Norwegian winter. This tale of two sisters and the bond of magic between them is recommended for all fiction collections." — Booklist
"Chelsea Iversen's magical debut The Witches at the End of the World is a story for the ages. Minna and Kaija are two young witches living in the wood. They are also sisters, separated by grief, who must find their way back to one another before it's too late. The powerful themes of revenge, redemption and healing are beautifully rendered in a story where love is the most potent magic of all." —Adriana Trigiani, author of The Good Left Undone
