**A deep thank you is sent directly to the author for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review**
I love that I live in a time where more and more female authors are getting their voices heard and more and more female heroines are being created by these female authors. I look forward to books that have a strong female lead and perhaps that’s why many of them have not…panned out, the way I hoped they would.
I was excited to receive a copy of Supernatural Slayer by Devyn Jayse. The story seemed like exactly the type that would transport me into a new world. I was fully ready for this, but it just never got to that golden moment. While the story is there and the writing decent, the MC left something to be desired. She just wasn’t relatable and I found the character falling back on the very overdone trope of, “I want to make my girl tough, I know I will have her break all the men that come into contact with her.”
Trust me when I say, there are other ways to make your heroine a bad ass without having to incorporate a weird ball busting habit. It is unfortunate that this author decided to go the way of the trope.
Despite the rough seas that is the ocean of editing I was thrilled to hand out Part One of my WIP to my small gaggle of beta readers this two weekends ago. Fear not to those who were hoping to be included in this group, this is simply round one and I intend to hand out full copies of my novel, once it’s gone through edits, to those later beta readers who are still interested. Current deadline to have the second draft of the novel complete is December 1st. We’ll see if I can pull it off.
In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to begin introducing some of the varied characters that line the pages of my story. There are two main characters and a whole host of side characters within my spiritual fantasy series, The Last War. I like to think each of them distinct in their own way and I would hope that would be portrayed in my writing, otherwise the characters would just be boring and I could not live with that.
The idea with this is to give a peek into the window of each character and the potential role they play within the series.
