Book Spotlight - To Slay a Curse by Rae Graham
Today I have a different kind of post than I normally write. A good friend of mine wrote and published her first book! She takes Biblical concepts and puts them into an adventure-filled story full of forgiveness and hope. Definitely worth the read! I encourage you to check it out :)
A parasitic monster. A timid young woman. A deadly inner world.
Giselle is cursed. A monster lives within her, preying upon her mind. She sees no hope for her future when thoughts disappear as they form, and every small pleasure is met with a fit of pain. Then her closest friend offers her a single, harrowing chance at freedom. Terrified that failure is inevitable, but desperate for the life stolen from her, she sets out to slay her curse armed with a magical talisman. Now, the girl who can’t do anything right must defeat the beast within before her dreamsnare fills, or risk dying trapped in her own mind.
What Readers are Saying:
“This book excels at feeling cozy, heartwarming, and altogether lovely! If you have read Margaret Rogerson’s “An Enchantment of Ravens”, then this book is right up your alley! It’s got the fairytale vibes, the unlikely heroine, and her struggle to love and accept herself as she is.” Gee-ARC Reader.
“This book is wonderful. It takes an abused girl and puts her on a journey-not to self-reliance, but the discovery that you need God to heal you. That message is effortlessly woven through the pages as the main character struggles with her inner darkness. And that message is one that many need to hear right now.” M.H. Elrich-ARC Reader
“It’s got plot twists, crazy awesome creatures, and a parasite that preys on Giselle’s every imaginative thought. It’s about bravery, imagination, different kinds of love, and forgiveness. It’s a beautiful story wrapped up in a grand adventure. I highly recommend it!” Andi L. Gregory-ARC Reader
“I really appreciated the way it handled sensitive topics while encouraging love and forgiveness.” Timothy Dobson-Goodreads Reviewer
A proud Hufflepuff and hard-core Tolkienite, Rae weaves fantastical tales filled with heart and hope for the YA reader. If you can catch her without her nose in a book or a pen in hand, she would be more than thrilled to share in an adventure or relax with a chai and chat. After growing up in several countries across Asia, she is now happily settled on the banks of the great Mississippi with her family.
