Slewfoot: A Tale of Bewitchery | Brom
21 posts | 9 read | 1 reading | 33 to read
Set in Colonial New England, Slewfoot is a tale of magic and mystery, of triumph and terror as only dark fantasist Brom can tell it. Connecticut, 1666. An ancient spirit awakens in a dark wood. The wildfolk call him Father, slayer, protector. The colonists call him Slewfoot, demon, devil. To Abitha, a recently widowed outcast, alone and vulnerable in her pious village, he is the only one she can turn to for help. Together, they ignite a battle between pagan and Puritan one that threatens to destroy the entire village, leaving nothing but ashes and bloodshed in their wake. If it is a devil you seek, then it is a devil you shall have! This terrifying tale of bewitchery features more than two dozen of Broms haunting paintings, fully immersing readers in this wild and unforgiving world. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

I couldn‘t put this book down. If you love folk horror this one is for you. But it‘s still a nuanced story. It‘s not just scary. I felt a wide range of emotions reading this. But that‘s all I‘ll say because I don‘t want to spoil anything. And the artwork throughout the book really brought the story to life. Slewfoot is a work of art.

Time for the last bullet journal spread of 2021. I like to make a yearly wrap up to recap each year. This year I read 89 books, which beat my goal of 85. I bought less books, but I spent more money. So I‘ve got to work on that next year. But overall, it was a successful reading year.

I‘ve really enjoyed growing the blog and meeting so many great people! You guys have made this year awesome! I hope y‘all have a happy, healthy 2022!

Gissy Amazing! 📚📚📚👏👏👏 3w

A fantastic tale of Puritan New England, this dark & fantastical story had me giddy. No subtle & quiet tale of witchery, this is horror with devilry & destruction. It is dark & brutal with moments of serious gore. The plot can be a little slow in places, but it is still a great story with a morally DARK gray protagonist. It's always a weird feeling to root for such a protagonist, but oh it was a delicious read. I regret nothing.

I started out engaged by Abitha‘s plight . . . until the story took an irrecoverable turn. Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#slewfoot-a-tale-of-bewitchery

Definitely judge this one by its (awesome) cover. Brom‘s very orginal, very dark tale of witchery in 1600s colonial America is brilliant, but be warned that the scariest characters here are the Puritans. 😱

Book 10 for the October themed reads. This one! OMG the story is so good. Unfortunately it‘s hard to describe without giving the story away so I‘ll just say worth picking up! Story and artwork are amazing!

The most terrifying part of the book is the Puritans. They are so rigid and judgmental. I can‘t imagine living in a society like that, where everyone watches each other for the slightest transgression. The writing is atmospheric and made me feel I was there with Abitha. The story moves along steadily but a little slowly. The pacing was fine with me as I really enjoyed just reading about life at that time.

Twainy YESSS! The way women were treated! Argh!! 4mo

I am posting one book per day from my to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new - don‘t judge me I have a lot of books.
Join the fun if you want. This is day 265.

#BookHaul !!!! 🍁 Many based on #BookTube recommendations, some just because they looked good 😁 some from #MyTBR by #BookRiot, one from #HarvardBookstore subscription and one from #AndOtherStories Publishing…

hmm…what should I read next 🤔 🍁

StellaB I loved Washington Black, amazing story! 4mo
Hazel2019 @StellaB it definitely sounds really intriguing from the short snippets and reviews I‘ve read! 4mo
Lesliereads Ooooo! I‘m going to be no help here, but The Poppy Wars is one I would like to read, myself. I‘ve read and loved both Washington Black and Wizard of the Crow!😍 4mo
Hazel2019 @Lesliereads maybe I‘ll start with Washington Black since there are already 2 votes for it being a great read! 😀 4mo
Twainy Washington Black was a good audiobook. 4mo

🎧 Abitha‘s an outspoken (bit snarky) young English lass shipped off to Puritan America to marry a man 10yrs her senior.

She‘s a subtle witch, making charms & casting small spells but an outspoken free spirit! She‘s a handful for a sweet sheepish man who‘s brother walks all over him. They live on a farm in the middle of no where that the evil brother owns even though it‘s part of an inheritance. 1 more loan payment & it‘s theirs!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️3/4👇🏻

Twainy Abitha is quickly widowed at the same time an ancient entity (Slewfoot) is awoken. Slewfoot‘s memory is missing so he‘s trying to determine if he‘s good or bad and where he fits in this world, a bit like Abitha.

An independent young woman didn‘t fare well in Puritan times so as you can imagine we get a taste of the times & the evil that men do. The last quarter of this book is a page turner.

I just preordered a signed 1st edition of this book for my baby sister! She is a huge fan of Brom (she named her kitty after him haha) but she doesn‘t follow the book circles like I do, so when the opportunity to purchase a signed book by him popped up I knew I had to grab one for her. It will be her first ever signed book and I know it being by Brom she will be so excited! I can‘t wait for Sept to get here so I can see her reaction!

Sweetkokoro I also entered my receipt of purchase for the preorder campaign to get her the signed poster too!! 7mo
