Greetings travelers, and welcome to our first stop in the Otherworld of the week. It’s been a wild year so far, and sometimes it feels like the apocalypse is on its way. We still stand strong when we have to, and when we can, however. But what if it truly was the end of days? And further, what if it was somehow your fault? Read on to learn more about how The Caribbean Witch addresses just such a problem.
Author Vox Deruste debuts their first feature length contemporary fantasy with a tale that has a lot that it must balance. The New Age: The Caribbean Witch is a story about identity, and finding oneself during one of the greatest of calamities. Its focus is on one central character, but it doesn’t shy away from familial bonds, and the way that history can connect people. And it pulls back the veil on magic and a hidden world beneath our own that is interesting without being too derivative of what has come before. Deruste manages to bring the light out of the bleakest moments, and drives the story forward with hope and unity.
An apocalypse on the horizon.
A family in turmoil.
A newly awakened demigoddess.
And the secrets that could tear the fabric of the universe apart…
For Rio, the only thing more confusing than discovering an unexpected truth about herself, is being sent to spend the summer with her cousin. She has no idea her family hides the kind of secrets that could change the world… or trigger the apocalypse.
A conspiracy about the family lurks in the shadows, one with the power to destroy their lives.
As the odds stack against them, it’s up to Rio to unite her family, bring light to the darkness and shadows plaguing them, and train her newfound power. No matter what happens next, her actions will forever change their lives and shape the rest of the world.
Between all the threads that The Caribbean Witch weaves, it ties everything up into a nice package by its conclusion. It ends well enough on its own, but Deruste is talented enough to let the threads of fate take the story in whichever direction they so choose, and there could be more magic in store for readers. With that in mind, there’s no better time than now to dive into this book. Check out The New Age: The Caribbean Witch on Amazon today!
