Though Teodora di Sangro can transform her enemies into inanimate objects, she keeps her magical abilities a secret. But when the ruler of Vinalia poisons her father, Teodora must master her powers to protect her family and discover who she was always meant to be. This gorgeous queer fantasy draws upon strega lore to paint a breathtaking story of love, self-actualization, and transformation. One of the best books I read in 2020.
