Danae, eighteen, unconscious within the neon frame of a sex shop window, stands imprisoned by an evil queen who fears her nascent power. Prince Charming, a novice witch coming off her shift at the strip joint, knows a glass coffin when she sees one and responds with a liberating smash. Escaping the clutches of an abusive mother, with only the clothes on her back and a head full of ghastly visions, this unlikely Snow White runs away to seek her true family in the loudest forest of them all: Bay Area thrash metal.Life is awesome as the frontwoman for local upstarts Enspelled, or so Danae thinks. Ascending from grimy local bars into the burgeoning death metal pantheon is a grueling dream come true, wishes granted in fierce brotherhood and erotic fire. Until a pomegranate-laced invitation tempts her into the rockstar underworld, a harsh land of occult grotesqueries, pretty predators, the relentless grind of the music industry, and one incredibly snide mirror. But fighting her way back to the surface is no easy feat, not when caught between a tribal-industrial temple and a house of diabolical notoriety, when true love glitters from the heart of a rival, and kindred spirits threaten to silence Danae's voice forever....

Goddess of Thunder Reviews
This book was phenomenal but in one word- deep. The writing was liquid poetry with a depth that rivals any "classic." The blend between fantasy-witchcraft and a modern reality which i have never known first hand was just perfection. it was like nothing I have ever read before. Wild made me want to get up and mosh but then sit down and think about how we all come of age in our own ways and how the kids on the fringe managed to create a whole new sound to their life track- death metal.But instead of just glorifying metal music she also shows us how misogyny played into death metal scene and the glass ceiling which exists for women in all walks of life- from strippers to musicians and all the rest of us. Best of all is this magnetic and magical love story which lifted me up and then broke me to smithereens. Outstanding.
Beautifully described but 100 pages too long. I love the real world magic and the San Francisco setting, but Danae is too passive in her story, drifting from lover to musical outlet without any desire or drive. I wish it had a Spotify playlist to accompany it.
