Jojo Rabbit is a movie people either love or hate. Mostly the hate stems from fear of the subject matter, but the movie is one you need to see for yourself. You can catch my movie review on my review page and see why I feel this is an important movie to see and discuss.
Way before even meeting my husband, I used to email him a weekly newsletter as his son's teacher. The man would annoy me to no end with his teasing about the things in the newsletter. Even meeting him face to face on a field trip did little to change that. And yet, we are married today.
Clara Winter's new release Goddess of the Moon, features a clashing couple. Selene is the daughter of Cleopatra and a demon hunter. Tash is a powerful witch. They aren't supposed to connect, let alone work together but sparks fly and fate has a way of messing up everyone's plans.
An impossible attraction. An apocalyptic threat.
After vanquishing a Celtic death demon, Selene should be kicking back and enjoying some free time. However, her life is anything but relaxed. She must travel to Romania, the last place she’d ever thought she’d be, facing another demon threat. Just another day at the office for the daughter of Cleopatra.
The situation soon escalates. The simple problem Selene thought she was facing, becomes intense--FAST. The dilemma is much greater than she initially feared. Throw in a sexy witch she doesn’t want to be attracted to, and her life really gets complicated.
Overconfidence leads Selene to make a mistake which could cost everything. Can she unravel the mystery before it’s too late? Or will her latest nemesis be the death of her and those she loves?
Goddess of the Moon is the fourth book of The Immortal Kindred Series and is set primarily in Brasov, Romania.
The witch appeared to the left of me, near the side of the fountain. I registered him out of the corner of my eye without moving my head. I didn’t want to seem threatening, but I also wanted to have him in my sights.
“Are we going to have a problem?” he asked, his voice deep with an unmistakable southern accent. He stood still, not moving any closer.
“Depends on you,” I answered, still as a statue.
“I’m cool if you are.”
I inclined my head, my gaze never leaving the fountain. Did the witch leave the tarot card? I was hoping he would be on his way but couldn’t be so lucky. He surprised me by moving closer until he was standing directly between me and the water. Maybe he was a threat.
The light was bright behind me, making it difficult to see him even with my preternatural eyes. He seemed to glow like fire in front of me.
“You know, there used to be a pillory in this square. It was used for punishments, humiliations, like they all were. It was also used for witches.” His voice was low. Had there been any humans nearby, they wouldn’t have heard him over the sound of the water. I could and he knew it.

I know I had a good life before. If only I could remember it.
I couldn’t sew, I couldn’t fish, I couldn’t hunt, I couldn’t cook, for goodness’ sake I couldn’t even tell the hallucinogenic mushrooms from the non-hallucinogenic ones. The list of Things I Couldn’t Do was uncomfortably long.
There was, however, one pretty big thing I could do: I could heal people with just a touch of my hands.
I didn’t understand it, nor did I know why or how I came by this ability, because here was the other thing: I had no memory.
Nada. Nil. Zero.
I had simply awoken on a beach, about two months ago, with my name rolling around my head, but that was it. My name was all I knew.
Just my name.
Being tied to a post for several hours had given me a lot of time to think.
This wasn’t, strictly speaking, a good thing. Being alone with my thoughts made me worry, often about things that had zero bearings on where I was or what I was doing. Like
whether or not my sandals would make it another week without mending, if eating so many kastania nuts would make my breath smell funny, or if I could get attacked by a shark while pearl diving.
But just now I was beginning to stress that Kakó would get worried and try to come find me. I didn’t need him finding out about this little stunt, as he’d undoubtedly just go off on
another long-winded lecture about safety and yadda, yadda, yadda. Safety, as if that was a concern for two people who regularly risked their lives to thwart a slave-trading ring.
I knew from watching past offenders that no one would cut me loose until the morning, but I wasn’t worried about that. I had my own knife slipped into a hidden sheath at the back of my belt and another strapped to my leg in case the first one was confiscated. But I couldn’t very well cut myself loose and go about my business until it was dark and all the market patrons had gone home. My legs were aching from the hours of standing, and I itched to cut myself loose, finish up, and go home.
Not for the first time, I wondered how I had ended up here. There were so many things wrong with my situation that I didn’t even know where to start. Why did I have no memory? Why did no one seem to miss me or come looking for me? Why did I have precisely zero “normal” skills? And why did I look so different? Why was everyone around me decidedly far more tan than I was? And what was up with my ears?
And of course, there was that other thing, that ability I had that I kept from everyone except Kakó. And he only knew because I’d used it to save his life that first day we’d met.
About the Author:
A Pacific Northwesterner by birth and disposition, Mara has lived in Washington, D.C., Oregon, Japan, and most recently, the beautiful Pacific Grove, California, before returning to her roots in Seattle. By day she teaches history to unsuspecting teenagers, and by night she writes books and travels to far-flung places. A black cat enthusiast, she loves to read, play sports, and drink far more London Fogs than is likely good for her.
With Veteran's Day fast approaching, seeing the war story- Midway, at the theater was a great weekend event.
Unlike many of the "Historically accurate" movies, the director and writer only relied on actual events and true people. So what you see is a movie that will have you celebrating the bravery of these men.
