ABOUT THE BOOK:
A Cult. A Murder. A Curse.
Sophia's family has skeletons, but they aren't in their graves...
At twenty-two, practicing Wiccan Sophia Parsons is scratching out a living waiting tables in her Rocky Mountain hometown, living under religious prejudice, the shadow of her bi-polar mother, and an unsolved murder.
Sophia can imagine lots of ways to improve her life, but she'd settle for just getting rid of the buzzing noise in her head. When the spell she casts goes wrong, the static turns into voices. Her personal demons get company, and the newcomers are dangerous.
One of them is a man named Charles, a centuries-old shape-shifter who Sophia falls for despite her better judgment. He has connections that can help her unveil the mystery surrounding her ancestor's hanging, but she gets more than she bargains for when she finally decides to trust him. Survival in his world, she learns, means not asking questions and staying out of the immortal council's way. It's a line she crossed long ago.
If Sophia wants to survive the council and save the people she loves, she must accept who she is, perform dark magic, and fight to the death for her freedom.
The Forever Girl is a full-length Paranormal Fantasy novel that will appeal to lovers of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, witches, vampires, ghosts, paranormal mystery, and paranormal horror.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Rebecca Hamilton writes Paranormal and Urban Fantasy, Horror, and Literary Fiction. She lives in Florida with her husband and three kids, along with multiple writing personalities that range from morbid to literary. She enjoys dancing with her kids to television show theme songs and would love the beach if it weren't for the sand. Having a child diagnosed with autism has inspired her to illuminate the world through the eyes of characters who see things differently.
The Forever Girl is about a sassy girl named Sophia, who is a Wiccan struggling with life and looking for answers. Sophia hears voices in her head, and as she tries to silence them, she uncovers secrets she never wished she stumbled upon, because now she finds herself wrapped in a supernatural world she never knew existed.
The Forever Girl is a thrilling tale and I loved every minute of it. I was pulled into this paranormal world from the moment I began reading the book. Rebecca's writing style is very smooth and the story flowed nicely. I highly recommend this book for anyone into the whole paranormal genre that includes, witches, vampires, ghosts, shapeshifter and other supernatural creatures. This book is part of a series and I can't wait to read the next one!
To Rebecca Hamilton- Congrats on your debut novel! I wish you all the best! ^-^* ~Nilsa
