Savage Her Reply by Deirdre Sullivan


A retelling of the favourite Irish fairytale ‘The Children of Lir’. Aífe marries Lir, a king with four children by his previous wife. Jealous of his affection for his children, the witch Aífe turns them into swans for 900 years.

Retold through the voice of Aífe, Savage Her Reply is unsettling and dark, feminist and fierce, yet nuanced in its exploration of the guilt of a complex character.

Voiced in Sullivan’s trademark rich, lyrical prose as developed in Tangleweed and Brine – the multiple award-winner which established Sullivan as the queen of witchy YA


‘No-one writes like Deirdre Sullivan. She is lyrical, poetic and intoxicating.’ Juno Dawson, author of Wonderland

‘Unsettling, haunting, and darkly lyrical’ Louise O’Neill, author of After the Silence

‘This is Irish mythology as it is meant to be read.’ Dave Rudden, author of The Knights of the Borrowed Dark

‘Not a single word is out of place: like a poem, or a spell.’ Tara Flynn, actor and writer

‘Stirring and shocking, a feat of absolute poetry.’ Sarah Maria Griffin, author of Other Words for Smoke
