DESPERATE PAGANS / Mainstream fiction
Bored, middle-aged Wiccan witch Charlotte Daven gets her two wishes: A great guy rocks her world and her dull small-town existence livens up when someone gives her a medieval spell book written in a mysterious magical language, making her the center of attention in
But the ‘great guy’, a handsome, charismatic Native American New Age writer is not what he seems, and worse, he’s a big ho. When the spell book is stolen, Samantha tries to forget about the writer shagging his way through the coven while she and a young Wiccan friend try to reclaim what’s rightfully hers. Meanwhile, she’s having wild screaming sex at night and she’s not sure with whom, because it sure as hell isn’t the cigar-store Indian! Could things possibly get any worse? Well, yes, when she finds herself pursued by every Satanist and black magic freak on the planet after they read about the spell book on her blog. Leading the pack is a Christianity-hating Norwegian ‘black metal’ band with exceedingly nasty plans to destroy the world’s clergy - if they can just get to that book first. Charlotte must face not only her own internal demons but the very real ones she never believed in – until the book's ancient charms were turned upon *her*.
This isn't a hook. It's got this. and that is not a good sign.
