Strange Grace (Compact Disc)
Haunting, visceral, hopeful, this is a story of an Omelas - style moral quandary made so human it bleeds. This is a story about young people growing up in naive privilege, who learn that the foundational truth upon which their charmed village is built is much crueler than they ever imagined… and they decide to face it head on. Lush writing, unconventionally resolved queer love triangle, and smart plotting make this a winner.— Gretchen L Treu
Once, a witch made a pact with a devil. The legend says they loved each other, but can the story be trusted at all? Find out in this lush, atmospheric fantasy novel that entwines love, lies, and sacrifice. Long ago, a village made a bargain with the devil: to ensure their prosperity, when the Slaughter Moon rises, the village must sacrifice a young man into the depths of the Devil's Forest. Only this year, the Slaughter Moon has risen early. Bound by duty, secrets, and the love they share for one another, Mairwen, a spirited witch; Rhun, the expected saint; and Arthur, a restless outcast, will each have a role to play as the devil demands a body to fill the bargain. But the devil these friends find is not the one they expect, and the lies they uncover will turn their town-and their hearts-inside out.
