A retelling of the favourite Irish fairytale The Children of Lir. Aìfe marries Lir, a chieftain with four children by his previous wife. Jealous of his affection for his children, the witch Aìfe turns them into swans for 900 years. Retold through the voice of Aìfe, Savage Her Reply is unsettling and dark, feminist and fierce, yet nuanced in its exploration of the guilt of a complex character. A dark & witchy feminist retelling from the author of Tangleweed and Brine
