Bast, from SPEAK DAGGERS TO HER is back! She's a modern-day witch and amateur detective whose investigations lead her into some of the most colorful and exotic corners of New York's occult underground. The adventure begins with the puzzling thefts of certain books of magic, and continue on to murder--a murder which may be related to the celebrated Mary, Queen of Scots, and whether or not Mary was a witch...
This is an sparkling murder mystery about a female detectve who just happens to be a witch. I was a fun read and the characters have real likeability. If you enjoyed "Practical Magic" or any of the works of Alice Hoffman, you might like this.
Another great mystery! It's strange that so many books feature witches as protagonists these days, yet it's such a breath of fresh air when they're anything like actual, real life witches. Rosemary Edghill clearly knows the modern Pagan community and all the kinds of people you'll find in it, so that gives these mysteries a context and atmosphere you just won't find in other books.
Very light reading with a Pagan touch.
Bast (a k a Karen Hightower) is a modern-day witch and amateur detective whose investigations lead her through the colorful and exotic world of New YoRk's occult underground. In BOOK OF MOONS, a series of puzzling thefts serves as prelude to a shocking murder whose origins lurk centuries in the past. Every witch has a Book of Shadows; part recipe book, part liturgy, and part diary. Now someone is looking for one very old, very special Book--and is willing to kill for it. Bast has few suspects and fewer clues, but where there's a witch, there's a way.
