  • interesting wintry read

    Those four M’s sum up this interesting wintry read for me. It takes place in the 1800s in England around the time of the murderous Jack the Ripper. It is the tale of two magical women: Genevieve Tetu (the Black Witch of Pau) and Annabel Horton (the White witch of the Salem Trials in the Americas) both uniting because of how Genevieve has imprisoned Annabel’s husband Michele for her devious spells. The story, to me, has a great plotline but the way it is written is kind of all over the place. There is a huge cast of characters but the main ones are Annabel and Genevieve, and the devil who has a name (Urbaine) and a priest by the name of Julian. The great thing about this book is its blend of cultures: Black and White. The element of this book that I found to be quite challenging was the devil worship and the gory details of some of the happenings in it. It was a rude awakening for me one time when Annabel was mistaken for a wife by a dangerously horrific doctor with the last name of Williams. His home was the haven for animals he has captured off the streets for him to use their organs for his experiments…(shudders). The mystery part of this novel comes around the final sections of the book where Genevieve Tetu’s true story was revealed by an Urbaine-look alike that Annabel meets at the home of a well-to-do couple that hired her husband Michele to tutor their girls. Aside from all those, Genevieve at one point had a very interesting conversation with God and He (yes He is male in here) told her this which caused goosebumps on my skin: “How to know God, you ask, Genevieve? To know God is to fall in love, in love with the sun as it sets in lime greens and yellows. To know God is to be in love with somber skies the color of ash and shadows. To know God is to be in love with the roar of thunder like a mighty burst of gunfire that might still your heart. To know God is to fall on the deep green emerald grass held in nature’s arms, for God is the call of birds and the white of snow. God is the black of ebony skies filled with the light of stars. We are all God, Genevieve. We are all one, never less than one, and we are always everything there is. “ I recommend this book to progressive readers. Their acceptance of everything about science and magic and God and race will find this book to be entertaining and forthcoming. I think this book holds some very interesting ideas and thoughts on the future of mankind and on the mystery of magic, God, the devil and time travel. I also recommend this book to those who love horror stories for there is a lot of that in this book. It is a mixture of sci-fi, horror, and mystery. I lastly think this is a great read for this winter season. It will make a fine reading item during the cold months coming up where you are in the comfort of your home, on the way to work on a bus/train, or at the library, you will find this book to be very unique.
