Hammered: The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne
“This is how gods are strong today. Christ, Allah, Yahweh, Buddha, Krishna: They have pages and pages of words about them. These words travel everywhere to bring idea of them to new generations. I have stone statues that travel nowhere. If lucky, I get half hour of man on History Channel asking who I was in deep voice.”
Above are the words of Perun, the Slavic God of Thunder. His worries came to mind the other day while I read an article about a woman who believed that “real Witches don’t share information about their Craft.” I hope not to be the only one who disagrees with that Witch’s statement, for if I’m alone in this, my Wicked Darlings, we won’t even get a “half hour” of future.
Graveminder by Melissa Marr
“Food. Words. Drink. The things she wanted since she woke up dead were weird, but weird or not, she needed them like she’d once needed air.” I will read this one more than once; it’s that good.
Witch by Nancy Holder
“When Death stalks the earth, witches come to play. For of all creatures they have nothing to fear, yea, only they.” Good to know.
Curse by Nancy Holder
“When the moon in the sky begins to swell all the world grows with her; planning, scheming, waiting…” Interesting…
Legacy by Nancy Holder
“Oh Green Man grant us this we pray, courage and victory at end of day. Goddess help us face our fears, drying now our angry tears. Give us the strength to prevail, as we glimpse beneath the veil.” I could always use a bit of extra strength as I spy on the things that hide without and within.
The cover of Marisa Marr’s Graveminder makes me want to write or read something witchy. If it entices you, why not go ahead and share it with others?
