The New Age: The Caribbean witch is the debut novel from up-and-coming author Vox Deruste. The book has recently become available on Amazon as a paperback and also as an ebook for Kindle. The story promises an exciting journey full of family drama, magic, danger, and new, distinct mythologies.
Deruste steps away from the mold of traditional fantasy centered on European stories and creatures. Instead, the book draws from different mythologies and rich fantasies from around the world to create something novel and engaging. Their book centers on demigods, including a Hindu demigoddess, a Romani girl with a lot of strength, and a trans-Egyptian magician, who are all discovering and exploring their heritage and the secrets their family has kept buried.
As the protagonist is sent to stay with cousin Eliodoro, new family secrets come to light, including a conspiracy that threatens each member. As if this is not enough, the end of the world seems to be coming soon, and the main characters will have to find new ways to survive, grapple with their powers, newly discovered or not, and have to find a way to keep going.
The book focuses strongly on family and romance. However, it also offers plenty of exciting, fantastic adventures and a world that has a lot of detail, drawing from various mythologies and belief systems to create something distinct and new. This allows the author to craft something very memorable rather than just repeat the same tropes over and over.
The New Age: The Caribbean witch is a modern fantasy story that is concerned with political and social realities but does not let this aspect get in the way of an exciting tale with fascinating characters.
The book is likely to please fans of fantasy, especially modern fantasy, who are not interested in the European-focused settings but are hoping to explore a more diverse and rich world. It has a lot of romance, adventure, drama, and excitement to keep the audience engaged from start to finish. It remains to be seen how Vox Deruste will follow up this debut on the fantasy scene, but The New Age: The Caribbean witch has plenty of fascinating details to keep readers wanting more from Rio and her cousins.
Rio is a protagonist with many admirable traits and a fascinating story full of magic. With a cast of characters that explore different conflicts and a drama centered on a family that desperately needs to stand together, it is certain to resonate with many emotionally as well. Stand with Rio, Vasilisa, and the other characters to face the darkness, bring light into the world, and stop a dangerous, potentially world-ending threat. Discover the family secrets that have been hidden away. Enjoy the adventure and the fascinating mythologies the author brings into the story.
