Season of the Witch by Natasha Mostert
Genre: Mystery, Romance
Can you hear the sunset? What is the colour of seduction? The easy answer is red, but that does not ring true. Red is full-on. Seduction is a feather brushing against the skin of the inner thigh. Subtle. Teasing. I think the colour of seduction is cappuccino. Dark coffee diluted with cream.
Gabriel is a thief, an information thief, and he loves it. When Frankie, an ex-lover asks for help, he tries to refuse for the painful memories, but he is too arrogant not to jump into it. Thanks to Gabriel we will meet Minnaloushe and Morrighan Monk, two beauty amazons with an amazing secret.
The Egyptians believed love to reside in the brain, not the heart. But I believe love should be vehement, physical, blotting out rational thought. Bathing his maleness: his smell, his touch, his exquisite violence. The next morning a bruised body, a dishevelled bed. And that searing sense that life is joy and passion.
I started this book for the mystery, but like Gabriel I ended needing "The Key" and wanting to join their quest for transformation.
In every Natasha book you learn some real astonishing information and she introduces you to a world full of witches and fantasy knowledge.
