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 practitioner 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. The author of the acclaimed Rashi's Daughters series and the award-winning Rav Hisda's Daughter: Apprentice has conjured literary magic in the land where "abracadabra" originated. Based on five years of research and populated with characters from the Talmud, Enchantress brings a pivotal era of Jewish and Christian history to life from the perspective of a courageous and passionate woman.

Quotes & Awards

  • Enchantress displays vast learning and delicious romance in equal measure. With charming characters, bewitching prose, and a spellbinding plot, Anton’s Enchantress will beguile readers.”

    Rabbi Burt Visotzky, author of Sage Tales: Wisdom and Wonder from the Rabbis of the Talmud

  • “Perhaps the best occult author of our time, Anton’s scintillating language sweeps the reader quickly into the chills and thrills of Jewish life and love during the Babylonian Empire.”

    Rabbi Goldie Milgram

  • “Mozhan Marnò is an ideal narrator for this historic tale of ancient magic and Talmudic tradition, which centers on Hisdadukh, a female scholar and powerful magician. Marnò‘s dreamy tone makes Hisdadukh’s magic utterly believable, and the historic details of this world very easy to imagine. Her inflections are subtle, but each character in this considerable cast is distinct and sympathetic, particularly Rava, who learns the arcane secrets of the Torah in order to prove himself worthy of Hisdadukh’s love.”
