Fantastic tales of demons and the Evil Eye, magical
incantations, and powerful attractions abound in Enchantress, a novel that weaves together Talmudic lore, ancient
Jewish magic, and a timeless love story set in fourth-century Babylonia.
One of the most powerful practitioners of these mysterious
arts is Rav Hisda’s daughter, whose innate awareness allows her to possess the
skills men lack. With her husband, Rava—whose arcane knowledge of the secret
Torah enables him to create a “man” out of earth and to resurrect another rabbi
from death—the two brave an evil sorceress, Ashmedai the Demon King, and even
the Angel of Death in their quest to safeguard their people, even while putting
their romance at risk.
