The Color of Gravity
“The connections we share—the ones that mean the most to us—are never truly severed.”
After her sister's unexplained disappearance, Seralynn discovers a small, overgrown cemetery hidden in the forest on her family’s generational homestead.
Coping with mounting grief, she becomes its dutiful caretaker, unaware it will open a door that has remained closed for centuries.
In Everlonne, a realm where myth and magic reign, she meets Fadrial and his father, Tobian, who share tales about the land, its turbulent history, and the murderous atrocities committed by Asmodeus.
He is the most powerful of all creatures known to Everlonne—and the most dangerous—obliging Seralynn to stay within the walls of Tobian’s castle until she can find a way to return home.
But one decision changes her fate in ways she could never have imagined.
Caught between two vendettas whose origins unravel everything Seralynn thought she knew about herself, the depths of true love, and great loss, she must learn who to trust as she faces an adversary who will stop at nothing to obtain the most powerful weapon imaginable:
Her own flesh and blood.
About The Story . . .
My forthcoming novel was inspired by the tale of Asmodeus and Sarah—biblical in nature, although the story lacks any religious undertone.
It’s a retelling of sorts, with a lot of creative (and magical) license surrounding those characters.
I’ve always been fascinated by the way lore evolves based on the teller; Asmodeus is presented as both a “king of demons” and a more laid-back, humorous fellow, depending on the story's origin.
And we all know that there’s always more than one side to any story, isn’t there?
Good and evil can coexist and in fact, they must—
for one cannot be without the other.
This book is an 80,000-word not-quite-cozy fantasy novel written in third person omniscient POV and primarily aimed at those who adore YA fantasy and paranormal romance but want to see a little more love given to main characters who aren’t aged 16 to 19.
