I’ve been home sick the past few days, so I just plowed through The Witch’s Trinity by Erika Mailman. Set in early 16th century Germany, it describes the horrible famine that swept through right after the bubonic plague. Starvation turns to desparation, and the innocent became scapegoats. It’s a really interesting look into human nature and how under dire circumstances frustration and helplessness can morph into appalling violence as the townsfolk lash out irrationally against members of their own small community. Plus, historical fiction and a little supernatural gothicity equals Win! I was actually a little sad when it was over, I really enjoyed it. And how awesome is the word gothicity? Totally awesome! If you like books with witches, suspense and descriptions of life centuries ago, check out this book.
