The reign of men has ended in this gripping thriller from Elizabeth Hand, and the fate of the world is on the line

Sweeney Cassidy is the a typical college freshman at the University of the Archangels and St. John the Divine in Washington, DC. She drinks. She parties. And she certainly doesn’t suspect that underneath its picturesque Gothic façade, the University is a haven for the Benandanti, a cult devoted to suppressing the powerful and destructive Moon Goddess. But everything is about to change as Sweeney learns that her two new best friends are the Goddess’s Chosen Ones.

Rich and engrossing, Waking the Moon is a seductive post-feminist thriller that delves into an ancient feud, where the real and magical collide, and one woman is forced to make a decision that will change the world.

Waking the Moon
Elizabeth Hand
 
 
 Anyway those things would not have lasted long.The experienceof the years shows it to me. But Destiny arrived in some haste and stopped them.The beautiful life was brief. But how potent were the perfumes,on how splendid a bed we lay,to what sensual delight we gave our bodies. An echo of the days of pleasure,an echo of the days drew near me,a little of the fire of the youth of both of us;again I took in my hands a letter,and I read and reread till the light was gone. And melancholy, I came out on the balcony— came out to change my thoughts at least bylooking at a little of the city that I loved,a little movement on the street, and in the shops.
CR Cavafy, “In the Evening,” translated byRae DalvenFor Oscar John Long,friend and voyager with all my love
