THE BANISHED intertwines a Victorian tale of gothic horror with a modern psychological thriller about revenge, delusion, and the ethics of violence
Rival factions of witches in 1880s Bucharest disagree on how to use their magic to replenish depleted power. The hardliners promote the use of murder, while Travis’ family promotes a new kind of magic that feeds from human fear alone. They champion their approach as enlightened because victims survive with no recollection of torment. After a grave mistake gets them banished by the hardliners, Travis is driven to perfect his parents’ magic and avenge them.
Travis comes to discover that he cannot stomach the trauma he inflicts, and that his parents’ technique, once pushed to its limits, is actually the most dangerous magic of all.
