"Why we're excited: An epic-sounding Jamaican-inspired YA fantasy? SIGN US UP. Jazmyne, the queen's daughter, refuses to die to strengthen her mother's power. Meanwhile, Iraya has spent her life imprisoned. When these two witches enter an alliance to take down a mutual threat, they don't expect the dangerous and deadly lengths they'll have to go to in order to succeed."


"...Two witches. One motive. And a very untrustworthy alliance. This screams CW, and to be honest they are long overdue for something outside of their all super heroes all the time tropes. While we love the DC narrative we’ve been missing intrigue on their channel. This would also make for a great Netflix show à la Cursed, or Hulu with their continued failure to produce “Throne of Glass”, we don’t see why they’d sit on their heels and pass up Witches Steeped in Gold."


"A Caribbean-inspired fantasy following two witches from enemy castes—one seeking power, and one seeking revenge—who will stop at nothing to overthrow the Witch Queen, even if it means forming an alliance with each other and unleashing chaos on their island nation."
