You know what? Four and a bit years ago, Lisa L. Hannett and I wrote this book, Midnight and Moonshine. We’re very proud of it.
Feeling a bit Norse mythology-y? Want white ravens, Fae, werewolves, moonshine makers, fire giants, voodoo, the Fates weaving folks’ fortunes from their hair, an Introduction by Kim Wilkins and a cover by Kathleen Jennings? Go here.
Publishers Weekly gave it a star and said this: “Marked by imagery both beautiful and grotesque, and unnerving twists that recall the uncanny horror of original fairy tales, this collection contains a unifying, multilayered plot that draws upon Norse mythology to take the reader on a thrilling, unsettling journey.”
The gods are dead, but will not be forgotten.
When Mymnir flees the devastation of Ragnarok, she hopes to escape all that bound her to Ásgarðr — a heedless pantheon, a domineering brother, and her neglectful father-master, Óðinn. But the white raven, a being of memory and magic, should know that the past is not so easily left behind. No matter how far she flies, she cannot evade her family…
In planting seeds of the old world in the new, Mymnir becomes queen of a land with as many problems as the one she fled. Her long-lived Fae children ignite and fan feuds that span generations; lives are lost and loves won because of their tampering. Told in thirteen parts, Midnight and Moonshine follows the Beaufort and Laveaux families, part-human, part-Fae, as they battle, thrive and survive in Mymnir’s kingdom.
