About the Book:

What if mythical creatures were actually real? What if they looked human? What if everything you believed was wrong? Three questions that Emilia’s mother asks her right before she explains that humans aren’t the only intelligent species on Earth. There are others. They are the Deus. Emilia is not human like she believes, she is half Deus, a monster, an Oracle who has the potential to wield the elements. In the Deus world unaligned oracles are rare and many, with darker intentions, would like nothing more than to capture her for their own purposes. So when Emilia’s powers finally show her mother aligns them with a powerful family of Griffins. Many at Deity High School believe her, as a half-breed, unworthy of such noble protection making her recipient of pranks and death threats. Savagery is common in their world but when half chewed body parts are found near school even the monsters start to worry. There are werewolves on the loose. But is it just coincidence or have they been sent? Emilia will find out just how deadly it is to be without protection in the dark.

About the Author:

I'm an aspiring author, hoping to follow my dream and publish my first book. I love all things fantasy and sci-fi, and all my works in progress are based on those genres. This is my first time trying to write for YA hopefully it comes off well. Looking forward to your feedback, and if you want to do an exchange I am happy to do that too.

Author's Note:

This is a story I've been working on for a while and is actually the second draft. The story was completed but after some professional feedback I'm now going back and changing some major elements. Hopefully the new version will be more appealing. I would love some feedback if you have time.
