I received a complimentary copy of DESTRUCTION by Sharon Bayliss. It is Book One of the December People series. Let me first say that it is published by Curiosity Quills, the publisher I recently signed with, so I was thrilled to read one of their novels. The cover, a butterfly against broken glass, blew me away.
After reading DESTRUCTION, I highly recommend it to my friends. The writing caught me from the first paragraph, in which David awaits an important phone call. I started the book at night, but became so involved in it I couldn’t quit. It ended up taking me a few nights, but each time I started reading, it sucked me in. The chapters are short, so I kept thinking, “Just one more.”
In a nutshell, this is a book about family and magic. David, his wife, and their children are “dark wizards.” I love fantasy and read it often, but those stories don’t usually involve so much family drama. I loved that aspect about this book.
