Publisher's Summary

Fantastic tales of demons and the Evil Eye, magical incantations, and powerful attractions abound in Enchantress, a novel that weaves together Talmudic lore, ancient Jewish magic, and a timeless love story set in fourth-century Babylonia. One of the most powerful practitioner of these mysterious arts is Rav Hisda’s daughter, whose innate awareness allows her to possess the skills men lack. With her husband, Rava - whose arcane knowledge of the secret Torah enables him to create a "man" out of earth and to resurrect another rabbi from death - the two brave an evil sorceress, Ashmedai the Demon King, and even the Angel of Death in their quest to safeguard their people, even while putting their romance at risk. The author of the acclaimed Rashi’s Daughters series and the award-winning Rav Hisda’s Daughter: Apprentice has conjured literary magic in the land where "abracadabra" originated. Based on five years of research and populated with characters from the Talmud, Enchantress brings a pivotal era of Jewish and Christian history to life from the perspective of a courageous and passionate woman.

    "Fantastic Book!"
    Where does Enchantress rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Probably number 1 or 2.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hisdadukh


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mozhan Marno?

    Anyone else! I, personally, think she was horrible. The long pauses were distracting. Luckily, I read this book on my Kindle a year or so ago and this was not the first time I was experiencing the story. I found her pauses very distracting and irritating. I would love to repurchase this book with another narrator. She absolutely did NOT do justice to Ms. Anton's fabulous book!!!!!
