Secrets of the High Priestess (Poems)
Nicole Tone
Publication Date: 01/02/2018

Secrets of the High Priestess explores trauma, recovery, and the role of women in a world that’s begun to change physically, with melting ice caps and changing sea levels, and socially, as we accept new definitions of truth and gender roles.

What readers are saying:

“Reading Nicole Tone’s secrets of the high priestess was like flipping through the transcript of my own confessions. It’s that necessary kind of unfiltered & uncomfortable that will leave your bones feeling cold & exposed. You’ll regret not keeping tabs on this rising poet.”

— Amanda Lovelace, author of The Princess Saves Herself in This One

“Nicole Tone’s poetry will have icicles ripping through reader’s hearts with every single word. Secrets of the High Priestess is a raw collection of cold truths that will leave you wading for more in a sea of self-reflection. Be on the lookout for this poetess, she will not disappoint.”
— Gretchen Gomez, author of love, and you

“Raw. Magical. Empowering.”
— Sigourney, Goodreads user
