I tend to masquerade as this happy, shiny, sunny person who doesn’t do the occult stuff.

Secret’s out, kiddos; I totally love the strange and unusual.

I was super pumped to finally get around to Luna Bray’s The Diviners which tapped into that need for bizarre, occult fiction.

True to her usual genius, Bray wove the story of Evin Fitzgerald (not just another “good time girl”; an actual “somebody” according to Evie, herself) into the shiny world of the 1920’s seamlessly, while also managing to dig deep into dark, uncovered secrets of the time.

I loved the juxtaposition of Evie’s insistence that she is “thoroughly modern”, with no time for old superstitions, and her unique ability that is most definitely ancient and rather spooky.

I have always been a sucker for historical fiction, especially The Golden Age (hello, her last name is Fitzgerald!) so this was very much my story to have on so many overlapping levels.
