Comments for Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite

Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite: 12/30/12

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite by Barry Deutsch is the sequel to Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword. Mirka craves more adventure but is stuck knitting.

Mirka though finds more adventures, again by harassing the troll, who in turn sends a meteorite hurdling towards the witch's house. Mirka has to save the witch to save her town.

Mirka's dilemma ends up being an interesting reinvention of changeling lore. Mirka's own worst enemy ends up being herself! She might lose her family and friends if she can't find a different solution for the meteorite it.

Mirka's current adventure brings to mind Stardust by Neil Gaiman and Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things by Ted Naifeh.
