Enchantress: A Novel of Rav Hisda's Daughter
Fantastic tales of demons and the Evil Eye, magical incantations,
and powerful attractions abound in Enchantress, a novel
that weaves together Talmudic lore, ancient Jewish magic,
and a timeless love story set in fourth-century Babylonia.
One of the most powerful practitioner of these mysterious
arts is Rav Hisdas daughter, whose innate awareness
allows her to possess the arcane skills men lack. With
her husband, Rava--whose knowledge of the secret Torah
enables him to create a man out of earth and
to resurrect another rabbi from death--the two brave an
evil sorceress, Ashmedai the Demon King, and even the
Angel of Death in their quest to safeguard their people,
even while putting their romance at risk.
The author of the acclaimed Rashis Daughters series
and the award-winning Rav Hisdas Daughter: Apprentice
has conjured literary magic in the land where abracadabra
originated. Based on five years of research and populated
with characters from the Talmud, Enchantress brings a
pivotal era of Jewish and Christian history to life from
the perspective of a courageous and passionate woman.
