“I do not worship their devil. Nor do I worship their other gods--Jesus, Jehovah, the Holy Spirit--but I respect them, for all gods are One. I worship the Great Mother, the one many call Diana, whose secret name the inquisitors shall never know.

Jeanne Kalogridis, The Burning Times

“Miroir de l'Ame Pecheresse, Mirror of a Lost Soul.”
Jeanne Kalogridis, The Devil's Queen: A Novel of Catherine de Medici

“I had learned a fundamental truth about killing: The victim's anguish is brief and fleeting, but the murderer's endures forever.”
Jeanne Kalogridis, The Devil's Queen: A Novel of Catherine de Medici
