A Witch in Time, by Constance Sayers

Staff Pick

In the vein of Outlander or A Discovery of Witches, Sayers has made magic and time travel essential to the romance of a witch and a demon, who are doomed to repeat their tragic love affair over and over. In Belle Époque France, 1930s Hollywood, the desert of the 1970s, and present-day DC, Helen and Luke always find each other and always lose each other. But this time, Helen untangles the curse that has trapped her for more than 100 years and must commit an unspeakable act to finally break free.

Small Gods, by Terry Pratchett

Staff Pick

 

For those attempting to tackle Pratchett’s enormous Discworld oeuvre who are unsure where to begin, try Small Gods! It follows Brutha, the slow but well-meaning Chosen One of the Great God Om, on a mission to prevent a holy war between the rigid theocracy of Omnia and its laid-back philosophical neighbor, Ephebe. The least of Brutha’s problems is that Om is trapped in the body of a tortoise and can’t persuade anyone to do as he says. Beloved by die-hard fans and casual readers alike, the novel takes on religion, ethics, and belief in Pratchett’s classic irreverent style.
