What an amazing book. It tells the last days of Christ on earth from the viewpoint of Mary Magdalene who is...not human (no spoiler here). There is a central premise which is both brilliant and executed amazingly well. The insights into the character of Jesus and his apostles is extremely well written. Highly recommended.

What struck me most about This My Blood was the tone, solemn and classical, as if unraveled from an ancient scroll dug up, dusted off, and given a fresh translation. Magdalene surfaces like a line etching, mythic in form and origin, her flesh gradually emerging from the haunted wind. Her voice is sober and reverently poetic as she walks in question of herself, then in witness of Christ’s passion and the ironic roles of Peter and Judas. This old tale given new flesh and blood not only entertains but leaves food for thought. And those who still take communion may sense old foundations begin to shift amidst the desert sands.
