January’s Indie Spotlight Feature Selection: “The Grimoire Chronicles: Veil Between Worlds” by Sally Dubats
I’m thrilled to announce that The Grimoire Chronicles: Veil Between Worlds by Sally Dubats will be the very first book featured as part of the Indie Spotlight Feature on Nicole’s YA Book Haven! Given that the posts will start this Friday, I figured I’d give you all an idea of what you can expect.
First, here’s more about The Grimoire Chronicles: Veil Between Worlds:
Halloween looms, and the Veil Between Worlds thins. Seventeen-year-old Cassie heads home from school and meets Trenton, a beautiful boy with an enchanting voice who steals her life force then makes her forget the attack ever happened. For other girls the lost time would be the end of the story, but Cassie is Wiccan and she uses her intelligence and authentic witchcraft to remember the truth. Her spell sets in motion a mind-blowing adventure that takes her to another dimension, the astral plane, where anything is possible and a perilous romance with Trenton blossoms.
Cassie learns that Trenton is a Siren. Ruthless, deadly and elegant, the Sirens are an evolved species, a combination of the Muses, the Graces, and the Undead. They have influenced human art, music, and dance through the ages — with a price, and Trenton’s family is renovating a decaying resort to open a school for teens gifted in the arts. A dangerous love triangle develops between Trenton, his intended Siren Match Iris, and his true Match Cassie, turning Cassie’s world upside down. Halloween looms and the veil between worlds thins. Stereotypes break down when friends come to Cassie’s aid, and she must delve deeper into her knowledge of witchcraft to discover the High Priestess within. The tale culminates at midnight on Halloween, the Witches’ Sabbat called Samhain, in a desperate astral battle to save each other from Iris’s fury or be trapped on the astral plane forever.
At the heart of “The Grimoire Chronicles: Veil Between Worlds” is an incredibly fast-paced mystery with a cliffhanger (sometimes literally!) at the end of each short chapter. Grimoire is fantasy based on research, and in this case it is based on Wicca and Witchcraft, Greek mythology, ancient Hindu/Yogic techniques, and science. The rituals and spells in the book are real, and the story is fascinating — whether you want to learn more about witchcraft, paganism, and earth-based religions or just get lost in a terrific book!
Watch for the next book in the series, “The Grimoire Chronicles: Winter Solstice” – coming soon!
