  1. Karl G. Siewert on

    I recommended Maiden, Mother, Crone for our local library to purchase based on your review, Ashley. I’m really looking forward to reading it!

  2. I must admit, I’m a little baffled by the reaction to one particular plot point in this arc.

    When Emmy found out she was the reincarnation of Amaryllis not Hester, I don’t think that lowers the stakes… It ramps them up massively.

    All through the story, Emmy has come close to committing some truly dark acts, and we’ve always assumed that was Hester’s influence. She was only pulled back because she resisted the evil of Hester. But now we know that wasn’t what was happening. The desire to do evil didn’t come from Hester, it came from Emmy. Emmy, who is the reincarnation of Amaryllis, has every reason to be good, and yet she’s come dangerously close to crossing lines that can’t be uncrossed, and all of that comes from her; there’s no outside force to blame. To me that is far more creepy.
