Magic Isn't Safe

On a land that floats on the back of a turtle, two lesbian lovers are introduced and aided by the mysterious, flaming haired, motorcycle-riding Mother Night— whose appearances are marked by death. But a bargain with a goddess... will never be without a price.

The world of Godmother Night resembles our own, but in their world, magic is real and present, and not always safe. I hear notes of Greek mythology, Native American folk tales, and Wicca in Pollack’s fairy tale. At the heart of this book is a love story and an allegory about recognizing one’s true self.

I got carried away with her two lovers as they found each other, and gasped as the story turned its surreal corners. Yes, it's that good.
