THE WITCH NARRATIVES REINCARNATION
(Land of Enchantment series #1)
BEST FANTASY FINALIST New Mexico / Arizona Book Awards 2012
"WHEN A NOVEL CAPTURES YOU—when you are entranced enough to stay up late reading and then dream your way into the story after you fall asleep—it’s usually due to that mysterious writer’s alchemy of plot, pacing, prose, and character. You can’t stop wondering what’s going to happen next, so you can’t stop turning the pages. Some writers have the ability to make every character, even the most minor background player, come alive, adding a visceral level to the reading experience. In The Witch Narratives Reincarnation, Belinda Vasquez Garcia breathes life into the people of Madrid, New Mexico, in the 1920s and ‘30s, in the days before the mine shut down, when members of the Penitente brotherhood held sway over public opinion and policy and witches were a dark force to be feared by even the most devout Catholic.”—Santa Fe New Mexican Pasa Tiempo Magazine 7/27 th issue - read the full review here
