”He turned around and was not surprised to see that Imelda was already wearing a bullet-proof vest over her nightgown and a tactical helmet over the rollers in her hair. She also wore boots, gloves, and kneepads. An Ak-47 with a fat drum magazine was slung across her broad shoulders. ’I’m old not deaf honey. Suit up. We’ll go through the tunnel and get the girls.’”

πŸ“š Greyborn Rising by Derry Sandy

πŸ’­ Can we please talk about the badassness of this book? Hello #CaribbeanReads! I had the privilege of being apart of this book tour hosted by Donna @thisbrowngirlreads! This stop is in the Bay ! πŸ™ŒπŸΎ California Love🌴 I am so grateful to help amplify this book! It is full of action and the paranormal elements give me chills!
β €
Greyborn Rising is set in Trinidad but exposes the paranormal secrets of the world! Imagine three parallel realms: the Grey, the Either, and the Absolute. While majority of us humans live in the Absolute and taught about the Either in religious text, the Grey is the stuff of nightmares. Within it lives maboya, obeah men, mayalmen, witches, jumble, soucouyant, and necromancers whom can awaken past reincarnations within one body. 🀯 [Insert silent scream] But it’s not all peril! There are honorable members from the Order of former slaves to maintain the peace and a few supernatural women on this side of justice.

The female characters in this book are admirable, but Katharine aka Kat aka that is my nickname too was my favorite! As shared in the above quote, the female energy are downright lethal! I loved every minute of it. I definitely found myself projecting my face on Kat, Kamara, and Imelda as I read the fight scenes. The visuals were so graphic my imagination didn’t have to do much work. The high tempo was ongoing from the first page to the very last. For this to be a debut novel, this author is definitely one to watch. Now this is a book I would pay big bucks to see adapted to film!

πŸ’‹xoxo,
Kat
