Tanith Lee, The Birthgrave

    She wakes alone, without memories, in an abandoned temple inside a volcano that is about to erupt. She has the power of a goddess, but no understanding of the world into which she has emerged. She will soon learn all there is to know of the cruelties of civilization and of barbarism. She is haunted by the past. If only she could remember it.


Tanith Lee is one of those incredible authors who deserves to be far better known than she is.

This is one of her first novels. It’s powerful. Don’t miss this one. Or any of the others she’s written, even if you have to order them used. (Though Norilana Books is now reprinting most of them.)

So much you really don’t want to miss. Like Don’t Bite the Sun, which is science fiction, and mind-blowing.
