*Author’s Note*


This book contains some topics that historically have been used in different ways to vilify and wrongly persecute the Jewish people. As someone who grew up in a Jewish household, I wanted to be sure to handle these topics in a way that was not linked to the historical propaganda against Jewish people. 

 

I worked closely with a group of people from various Jewish denominations to ensure that these topics were handled in a way that did not perpetuate harmful stereotypes or other antisemitic tropes. I intentionally designed my characters in a way to ensure they were not Jewish-coded and the consumption of blood contained in my story is limited to abusive, male adults. However, these topics may be difficult for some readers, so please refer to the content warnings listed above.

 


In addition, please find a link below regarding Blood Libel and its origins in antisemitic propaganda.

The characters contained within are inspired predominantly by Greek mythology—both the mythological creatures and the witches, who are based loosely on Hecate and her followers. I also drew inspiration from Norse mythology when creating the cloaks they wear.
