Magic. In her debut novel titled, Wonderblood, Julia Whicker presents a future United States where we have turned away from science and toward magic. Science failed half the world’s population as it did not protect people from disease. We turn to faith and interpret portents and provide blood sacrifice to ward off danger. Violent factions struggle for control and the locus for worship becomes Cape Canaveral, a relic of a time long past. Whicker offers interesting characters, political machinations, and an apocalyptic vision that will make many readers shiver.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
