There are overtones and undertones and starts and finishes—and that’s before aeration, which adds richness and nuance. Even a Muscatel that my husband and I bought in an LA grocery store was a medley of flavors.

1. Despite my usual snark on my blog (and others), Mistress of the Stone is a serious story about serious things, like ghouls, gargoyles, and werewolves. 2. There’s a virgin involved—a well-armed virgin. 3. It’s based on the premise that ghosts can be cursed to remain on the mortal plane. 4. One of the main [...]
