Here at Sci Fi Saturday Night, we read a lot of books. In fact, that may be an understatement this year more than most due to the understandable peculiarities that pandemics do to us. In reading as many books as we have over this “pandenterious” time we have discovered many many things. One thing we have kind of come to agreement on is that if you haven’t somehow been in some way engaged by a book by page 50 or so you probably are not going to be. Let it not be said that there have been exceptions to this rule, but mostly it holds up. HOWEVER, when a book pulls you in after 50 sentences and doesn’t let go, that, my dear friends and listeners is an engaging story, and what we have come to expect from Kathrin Hutson.
Kathrin makes her third visit to the show, this time to showcase her foray into the world of urban fantasy with The Witching Vault. The Witching Vault revolves around witch Jessica Northwood’s experiences becoming employed by and on the same day discovering she owns The Winthrop & Dirledge Security Bank, a bank that exclusively serves the magical population of Golden, CO. Kathrin, in her diabolically evil way, drops a trail of Pop Tart crumbs behind her to tantalize the reader into wanting to know more like any sugar product would. Her inherently evil plotting ways entice the reader to want to know more with every single turn of the page, be it physical or electronic. This style has become her hallmark and she executes it more and more beautifully with each work.
Enjoy the surgery.
