2015 book 255

Sarah Avery's Tales from Rugosa Coven
This was an unexpectedly delightful series of three stories/novellas all involving some of the members of a coven in New Jersey--one, a lawyer dealing with being married to a Methodist, not to mention being haunted by his recently deceased parents; another, a woman crippled by OCD; and the third, well, let's just say there's a mysterious dude with gills involved. Not to mention coven politics, tarot readings, inflatable art installations, and a lot of tattoos and piercings. I loved all the matter-of-factness of their lives and their relationships and their day jobs. Really just funny and charming and magical. I hope Avery writes another book soon. A/A-.

Thank you for the lovely review! And yes, I am working on a second volume of Rugosa Coven stories. It's so encouraging to see reviews that clamor for more! Meanwhile, you might be interested in the project I'm launching through Kickstarter:

I am already a backer (I think it was linked on Goodreads) but am also very psyched we'll get more Rugosa stories!
