Spring’s Arcana (The Dead God’s Heart, 1)

We rated this book:


Nat’s world has shifted upside down and she’s left desperate to find an answer. Her mother has received a life-changing diagnosis and now resides in a hospice with doctors not offering much hope. Her mother has her own plan in mind, for Nat to take a trip and make a deal with a goddess. This sends her on an epic journey with an unexpected travel companion that brings her face-to-face with dangerous divinities.

The writing is delightfully descriptive, with Saintcrow delivering a strong voice and a relatable character. Nat is a well-rounded and brazen character that has a powerful motive driving her forward. She has a strong presence that Saintcrow captures with ease. The relationship with her mother is the core of the plot and is the catalyst for putting Nat on this adventure. The humor is clever and the writing will keep you engaged from the first page, throwing you directly into the plot and taking you along for the ride.

Mythology comes to life with a unique twist on divinities and Baba Yaga that creates a world that will immediately capture your attention. Spring’s Arcana is hard to put down, with twists and turns that take place along an incredible journey.
