“Madga is a Jewish witch trying to make a living and support both her younger sister and her best friend. Magda descends from a long line of witches, and she, being the oldest, has inherited the power of resurrection, though with some consequences. It is 1939 and her sister has a premonition of the war to come and the evils Hitler will bring to the world. In order to stop her sister’s visions from coming true, Madga must travel from her home in Budapest to Amsterdam to look for her ancestor’s book, The Book of Raziel. This historical urban fantasy reads more like a historical fiction than a contemporary urban fantasy. The author is really able to take you back to that time even with characters that are witches, angels, and vampires. I recommend this to both historical fiction and paranormal fans.
