Originally published at Risingshadow.

Because I enjoyed reading Donald Michael Platt's A Gathering of Vultures, which gradually grew into fascinatingly Lovecraftian heights of weirdness, I was very intrigued by The Sorceress and the Skull. This dark novella turned out to be a surprise of the most pleasant kind, for it was a refreshingly different kind of a story with an emphasis on entertainment. I enjoyed reading it, because it felt fresh and was totally different from A Gathering of Vultures.

I could have loved this book a lot. Prophecies coming down from the Middle Ages. A girl who’s Nostradamus’s descendent. A damaged WWI veteran. Occult practices and secret societies. Secrets coming from the Orient and gargoyle statues becoming friends with mysterious cats. There is indeed a lot to love.
And still it didn’t click for me. I wonder whether this was because Michelle, the central character, was quite unsympathetic. Even being very young, she’s always in control. She cares for no one.
