Decades have passed since the Collapse. Our world has twisted and twined into something unrecognizable. The ruination of civilization was compounded by a return of impossible powers, ancient myths and forgotten tales. Legerdemain and conjuring exist side by side and a dangerous, lascivious, new reality is whispering its seductions to some. Rending apart others.

Post-apocalyptic fiction is thick on the ground these days, but this one caught my eye from the sheer awesomeness of the cover art.

Thankfully, the story behind that cover lived up to the expectations that the art presented. The world-building is fascinating and well-thought-out. I'd like to have seen more of what lead to or caused the Collapse, the tearing open of the Veil between the world of humans and the world of strange preternatural beings, but perhaps future volumes will reveal these deta

If you're a fan of the horror fantasy genre, you may enjoy this book that I recently finished reading. The Bruja is written by Michael Molisani, a writer with tons of imaginative, deep thinking. This bizarre yet entertaining story that unfolds in a town named Crafton which was created after the collapse of modern society and which was formerly known as Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. With a significant military presence for defense, Crafton and its surrounding geography is

Michael Molisani fully captures the wonder and horrific nature that is magic. I've read so many apocalyptic stories in my time and each has had their own special way of conveying the end, but The Bruja speaks to the very essence that is humanity. The raw truths that Maggi endures during her journey cut deep and make this world of rebirth come alive in a gritty and horrific way. Michael's use of words in this way is beautiful and brilliant and the emotions he draws upon are powerful. I absolutely ...more

Alive isn't necessarily the first word to describe the world of Maggi Lopez, but it's an apt one. From the vivid descriptions of the Bay Area that reminded me of my own time growing up in California, to the new communities and governments established in the post-apocalyptic wasteland, everything has the dirt and grime of life that continues on during the worst of times. Maggi "The Bruja' Lopez is a fascinatingly complex character haunted by metaphorical and literal demons. She's got flaws, tons ...more

I am an avid reader of Neil Gaiman, Poppy Z. Brite, Anne Rice, and will at least scroll through a work if it has certain elements that get my attention. I tried to scroll through this and was utterly consumed. There is a naturalness written into this story, you are aware that ghosts walk the streets and gods might just decide you are worth there attention, and it does not feel false or unusual. I quickly fell into this world and admire Maggi as a witch, a mother, and a leader. Read this book!
