ABOUT THE BOOK:
February’s adult book is a fairy-tale-like story from a debut author, that is in turns sweet and haunting. This novel takes as its starting point a single cryptic reference from Norse mythology about a single sometimes-nameless woman, and spins out into a heartfelt, timeless tale about a brilliant powerful witch, the god she loves, and the children she bears who are foretold to destroy the world. The main character is a powerful witch who has been burned three times as punishment for defying the gods, but refuses to die. While in hiding, she falls in love with one of those gods, and bears him three children -- monsters who, through no fault of their own, may someday have the capacity to bring about the end of the world. But the witch is first and foremost their mother, and she will do anything to protect her children, no matter what any god has to say on the matter.
The author, borrowing her main characters from Norse mythology, breathes new life into time-worn stories, giving all of those involved complex personalities and motives. All the characters are endearing, sympathetic, and infuriating -- often at the same time! -- with fully embodied lives and relationships. This is a highly recommended book for those who love fairy tales and mythological re-tellings, as well as anyone who loves a little (or a lot) of family drama mixed in with their fantasy.
