After a homophobic pagan group rejected him, Lars Kendall is a solitary heathen on the Northern Path, loyal to the gods of the Norse pantheon. But being on his own sucks. So when he finally meets a mixed group of other queer witches and magick users, it’s like finding family. If family involved exploring past lives and casting spells. Rhys Turner quit a stressful job in the city after his high-strung boyfriend of six years walked out. He sold the expensive flat in central London and bought a run-down house out in the suburbs.

this had a great deal of potential. However, there was no real mystery or magic to the story. that part could best be described as maybe a Daydream of some sort.

The romance part of the story is great! but as a heathen and a gay heathen I was excited to find a story about a gay heathen. gay Pagan characters are almost always in the general Wiccan or general Pagan sense. I have never come across a story that involves a gay heathen before. so as someone who is gay and the practitioner of heathenry, someone who worships the old Germanic deities, this was actually a pretty big let down.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.
