I didn't just make a career change though. I'm not the same person I was before. I'm stronger, I can heal from wounds that would kill a normal person. I'm developing latent psychic skills at a breakneck speed. Oh yeah, and it would seem that a Pagan goddess has taken permanent residence in my body and mind. Crazy thing is, I'm starting to feel normal, like this is who I'm supposed to be.
Of course, there are those who don't agree. Morrigan and her sisters for example. Actually, I'm pretty sure they'd like nothing more than to see me dead. And if I can't stop them and the demons they've raised, they just might get their wish.
Detective Maurin Kincade is an interrogator for the Salem Preternatural Task Force. Essentially if she can get a reading by touch usually she can “see” the person’s past. She becomes the focus of the Other Council and also the Morrigna (Morrigan and her two sisters). The Council wants to use her for her talents and the Morrigna wants to kill her for them.
In the process of “reading” a book, she becomes joined with a goddess. I thought this was a good part of the novel. It was different and fairly well explained.
What I liked about Ms Rawlings’ The Morrigna: an unique storyline with a halfway decent lead female character. I liked some of the secondary characters also. The writing was pretty good. Not a bunch of editing mistakes but there were some. No big plot holes. The world building was so-so.
What I had trouble with: there were a lot of characters introduced all at once. I had no sense of connection to the extra characters. I didn’t get a sense of good guys and not so good guys. There was bunches of action but at some points the story was bogged down by seemingly random descriptions/explanations.
I will read the next in the series, Witch Hunt, to see how the story and the author develop.
