The figure Lilith is forever entrenched in our minds, as the mother of all dark creatures. From ancient artifacts to modern day film and comic books, we continue to see her as a vengeful feminine anti-hero. The she-demon from the Babylonian empire is far from an antiquated figure of myth and lore of days gone by. If anything, there has been a renewed interest in Lilith which has led modern artists and writers to embrace the archetype with still more fervor than in any time in the past. Like the phoenix which rises from the ashes of its former self, Lilith is reborn each time her character is reinterpreted and retold, in as much as are vampires, clarifying the reasons her persona was so quickly adapted to be the mother of the Succubi and of course vampires in so many stories. This reshaping of the screeching demoness serves to reflect each generation's views of the feminine role in society, or in our day and age, how we redefine ourselves with one another. As we grow and change with Lilith survives the millennia, because she is truly the singular best archetype for the changing role of women. Learn Lilith's darkest secrets as the author unveils her origins and brings you forward in time to discover this misunderstood figures evolution.
Orishas, Goddesses, and Voodoo Queens: The Divine Feminine in the African Religious Traditions by Lilith Dorsey
Publisher: Weiser Books
"Throughout Africa and beyond in the Diaspora caused by the slave trade, the divine feminine was revered in the forms of goddesses, like the ancient Nana Buluku; water spirits like Yemaya, Oshun, and Mami Wata; and the warrior Oya.

This book shows us how to celebrate and cultivate the traits of these goddesses, drawing upon their strengths to empower our own lives"--
Valora Rigmore understands pressure. As the Chosen One (resident telekinetic, superstar and model girlfriend) her life revolves around it. According to an ancient prophesy, Valora is destined to fight Erys, a terrifying individual with the power to control monsters. Valora is worshipped at school, in the press and by her parents, but as the battle with Erys looms near, the cracks in her perfect façade are beginning to show. Her twin, Grier Rigmore understands disappointment. A curvy bookworm perpetually in the shadow of her sister's legacy, Grier's life is one long humiliation after another. However, as Valora's fandom reaches an unbearable fever pitch, an interesting new boy and a clever teacher spark Grier's curiosity about her own powerful gifts. When Grier's star begins to rise, so do more questions: like who is truly the Chosen One, and will two sisters at odds survive long enough to understand the answer? Best described as Harry Potter meets Mindy Kaling, Sister of the Chosen One is a darkly funny, female empowered YA epic about siblings struggling to connect with each other, free themselves of labels and save the world in the process.
