Winter of the Gods

When I was in High School, our teacher assigned a book of mythology.  I think I was a Sophmore, and I’m pretty sure my teacher was one of those coaches who showed up for a year and did his time before moving on to a larger school in a larger town.  An argument could be made that these teachers left for public schools because we could be difficult.  Personally, I think we would have been far better behaved if books like Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians existed instead of the yawn-fest we were assigned.  Whoever compiled that book of myths had to work really hard to make it so boring.

The Witch of Bourbon Street

The Witch of Bourbon Street had a pretty convoluted plotline, but I’ll give it a go.  Frankie is a witch from an old family who has long denied her powers.  She moves back to the family home that witnessed several mysterious deaths several generations back.  The disappearance of Frankie’s son and appearance of her long-lost daughter force Frankie to confront her past.
