The Vine Witch by Luanne G. Smith
A young witch emerges from a curse to find her world upended in this gripping fantasy set in turn-of-the-century France.
For centuries, the vineyards at Château Renard have depended on the talent of their vine witches, whose spells help create the world-renowned wine of the Chanceaux Valley. Then the skill of divining harvests fell into ruin when sorcière Elena Boureanu was blindsided by a curse. Now, after breaking the spell that confined her to the shallows of a marshland and weakened her magic, Elena is struggling to return to her former life. And the vineyard she was destined to inherit is now in the possession of a handsome stranger.
Vigneron Jean-Paul Martel naively favors science over superstition, and he certainly doesn’t endorse the locals’ belief in witches. But Elena knows a hex when she sees one, and the vineyard is covered in them. To stay on and help the vines recover, she’ll have to hide her true identity, along with her plans for revenge against whoever stole seven winters of her life. And she won’t rest until she can defy the evil powers that are still a threat to herself, Jean-Paul, and the ancient vine-witch legacy in the rolling hills of the Chanceaux Valley.

La profezia del Villaggio del Drago (Italian Edition) by Ronesa Aveela
Il giorno in cui fuoco e ghiaccio compaiono nel cielo, per il dodicenne Theo tutto cambia per sempre. Quando Lamia, un mostro a tre teste, rapisce sua sorella, lui scoprirà che i draghi sono veri. Una strega ed una gazza parlante lo aiuteranno ad aprire un portale per il Villaggio del Drago, una terra mitica, un posto pieni di creature terrificanti ma anche, per esempio, di esseri amichevoli come la giovane ninfa delle foreste che diventerà sua amica. Theo dovrà imparare a fidarsi del suo istinto mentre cerca un modo di sconfiggere Lamia prima che il drago sacrifichi sua sorella. Durante il suo viaggio, scoprirà dei segreti che riveleranno come solo lui potrà salvare quel luogo mitologico.
Alcune delle più terrificanti creature della mitologia bulgara e slava popolano le pagine di questo libro. Alcune sono note, ma con nomi diversi: le Vile, ad esempio, sono le Veela della saga di Harry Potter, che qui si presentano come sovrannaturali ninfe dei boschi. Baba Yaga, Arpie ed altre creature compaiono in queste pagine, insieme alla temibile Lamia.
English and Bulgarian versions are also available.
