I will say this straight off the mark, HOUSE OF IVY AND SORROW isn’t for the squeamish. These ladies are old school witches. No wands, no orbs, no gentle brushes of wind or power. Eye of newt, toe of frog, fingernail of best friend, and then some.

Pure fun. That’s what Natalie Whipple’s TRANSPARENT is. Universal themes regarding identity and independence are explored alongside twisty fun supernatural abilities like flight, the protagonist’s invisibility, and all the way down to seemingly trivial powers like fear induced stink. More series issues arise thanks to Fiona’s crime lord father and ‘jobs’ he literally charms her into carrying out for him.
