Today, my amazing CP drops her latest novel!
Horray, Valia Lind!!
Before I introduce you to her work, let me tell you about Valia. She and I met via CP matchmaking hosted by Maggie Stiefvater. We hit it off right away, sending each other our works in progress.
We are very different. While I write horror, with lots of swearing and other naughty things, Valia is more sweet and reserved in her fantasy and contemporary stories. She is the most amazing person and writer friend a girl could have.
Wiht all of that said, I am super excited today to help her celebrate the release of her self-published fantasy, REMEMBERING MAJYK. This book is special. With this story, Valia has entwined her Russian roots with an age old fairy tale.
Have I piqued your interest yet? Well, how about this…
Calista Faulkner never believed in fairy tales…until she is thrust into one.
While attending a college party, she’s attacked by terrifying creatures straight out of a modern day Dr. Frankenstein’s handbook. Fleeing for her life, she discovers that her human memories are a lie and nothing is what it seems.
Calista becomes a target and her only chance of survival is to trust the mysterious Brendan Parnell. He seems to know all of her secrets, even those she doesn’t remember herself.
Together they must fight to protect the most important part of their inheritance, the Relic of Knowledge. Unfortunately, Calista has no memory of her magical life and no idea where she hid the relic. As her memories begin to resurface with bone crushing agony, Calista must face the facts: she is a Volshebnitsya of the High Realm of Skazka and it is her duty to stop the Glava, the masters of Shadowlands.
The world around them begins to falls apart. Plagued by storms that are destroying cities and torn by the sinister monsters of Russian lore. The secrets locked deep inside her mind are her destiny and her undoing. If both worlds are to survive, Calista and Brendan must face the darkness around them—and the darkness threatening from within.
