From the description:
In a fantasy village, witches exist on the margins of society and are treated very badly.
That is why they become witches in the first place.
In The Black Drink, they must choose what indignities are worth enduring. Past that limit, they must go to desperate extremes to summon agreeable demons, gain their help, and learn the secret rituals necessary to repay them. These rituals are capricious and strange, sometimes terrible and sometimes dangerous, but ignoring them comes at a very high cost.
The Black Drink centers on using and concealing witchcraft and leveraging demonic boons to gain power, respect, peace, justice, or perhaps revenge.
Who knows what a witch wants?
