Mark of the Witch by MAggie Shayne

From New York Times bestselling author Maggie Shayne comes the first novel in her thrilling new trilogy, THE PORTAL She was born to save what he is sworn to destroy...

A lapsed Wiccan, Indira Simon doesn't believe in magic anymore. But when strange dreams of being sacrificed to an ancient Babylonian god have her waking up with real rope burns on her wrists, she's forced to acknowledge that she may have been too hasty in her rejection of the unknown. Then she meets mysterious and handsome Father Tomas. Emerging from the secrecy of an obscure Gnostic sect, he arrives with stories of a demon, a trio of warrior witches-and Indira's sacred calling. Yet there's something even Tomas doesn't know, an inescapable truth that will force him to choose between saving the life of the woman he's come to love-and saving the world


There are plenty of jokes about it.  A Rabi and a Priest walk into the store, eat lunch, yada yada yada. I bet there were not jokes about a Priest  and a Witch eating lunch together, much less falling in love.

As the past is rushing to catch up with Indy, her friend and fellow Witch Rayne contacts her brother, Thomas, who just so happens to be a priest on the look out for what he is told to be a doomsday prophecy.

But when bombs start dropping, and animals attacking and he finds not only is his heart on the line but that of his sister, then thing's start to come to head.

This book was full of twists and turns that left me on the edge of my seat and ready for more. Shayne once again gave a great delivery of suspense, fantasy and comedy all wrapped into one neat package.

Favorite Quotes:
" I have little boobs. Nice, firm, little boobs."

2. One. Just one. My precious.

3.The smell of books was soothing. It was the smell of knowledge, preserved and passed on.

4. I flicked his Bic, smiling at the evil rhyme scheme that brought to mind.

5. "There's nothing chocolate can't fix, " I informed him." I wouldn't be surprised if it could make this alleged demon so happy he grows a halo."

6. Fuck off, voice reason. I hate you. I hate you back.

7. My yoda lowered her hood to reveal Darth Vader underneath.

8. "Maybe the Universe is going to keep throwing you together until you figure out that love is more important then anything else and treat it that way. And maybe you're both going to keep suffering until you finally learn it."

4. Raven's.
