The Witch's Heart

The Witch's Heart cover

by Genevieve Gornichec, 2021.

Old Norse mythology only briefly mentions the witch Angrboða, as the mother of three "monsters", fathered by the trickster god, Loki. This book explores her life, explicitly acknowledging her erasure as a woman, and resolves it, providing her a powerful story, in which she survives men, gods, and all.

Another fantastic Suze recommendation. Loved it.

Also this month: The Emperess of Salt and Fortune by Nghi Vo. I wanted to like this sooo much, and can see so many things about that are wonderful, but for some reason I just couldn't get in the mood. The problem is indubitably me, not you.
