"This is an imaginative and well-crafted piece of provocative fiction that would appeal to fans of the genre."
A paranormal, adult tale of sensuality told in two parts. ‘Morijana the Fortune Teller’ by Marion Terenko is a historical romance set in the 17th century. Split into two parts, ‘Morijana the fortune teller’ and ‘Morijana the Countess’ the narrative follows a knowledgeable, confident gypsy pedlar who, in the process of her search for customers comes across Bájnoky Castle and a squire, who was expecting her presence for more than a card reading and becomes seduced into a dark ritual that will change the course of her life. The author’s use of the first person quickly draws the reader into the story, and the moody, scenic full-page illustrations throughout create ambience. I was surprised when I reached the Acknowledgements to read that this book was not written in the author’s native language, as I found that it flowed very well throughout. Readers beware, that although folklore and the paranormal play a large role in the narrative, it is used as a plot device for adult ends and so may not be to everyone’s taste. This is an imaginative and well-crafted piece of provocative fiction that would appeal to fans of the genre.
