River Woman, River Demon tells the story of Eva Santos Moon, an aspiring Chicana artist who practices the ancient, spiritual methods of brujerÌa and curanderisma. She’s at one of her lowest points – suffering from disorienting blackouts, creative stagnation, and a sense of disconnection from her magical roots. When her husband is taken into custody for the shocking murder of her friend, Eva doesn’t know who to trust – least of all herself. She soon becomes a potential suspect and her past comes to the surface and reveals the truth an eerily similar death from her childhood to light. Struggling with fragmented memories and self-doubt, an increasingly terrified Eva fears she may be involved in both murders. As she struggles to keep her family safe from danger, Eva realizes she must use her magic as a bruja to protect herself and her loved ones while confronting her own dark history.
