A few millennia into the future, on a different planet, in aging biodomes, the human race grapples with a new threat, or maybe a new gift – humans with fire in their blood. Nigrae Lunam, ex-soldier and current co-leader for the Caeruleum gang, finds himself ensnared in a fire fight when he rescues a pair of children, Sam and Abby from the Aurantiaco gang, and a man with cognac-colored eyes, Sanctus, from the Rubrum gang. This would be any average day, save for the fact Sanctus is a rare Providentia, a person who can boost a fire-user’s powers ten fold. A priceless, coveted treasure in the city of Urbs Aquarum. As Lunam shows the man and children what it means to be safe, he develops a fondness for Sanctus that he swears he will never reveal. When Sam and Abby are threatened and Sanctus is kidnapped, Lunam must face the responsibility of taking over another gang’s territory, his true feelings for Sanctus, and the chance it all blows apart in a fiery inferno.
1: “I know it seems odd to talk about a fiction book and call the romance and relationship aspect “realistic”, but there it is.
If you’re a reader who is tired of dusty patterns, if you feel like you’ve read the same six characters in SF and the same two in Romance over and over again, if you want something edgier and more non-conforming, you’re probably going to enjoy this story. It’s fun, and it’s easy to care about the people in it.
I won’t pretend like it’s going to make everyone happy, and I’m terrified at the thought that someone will pick it up hoping to read Sandra Brown in space. Then again, maybe everyone could use the shock.
But if “New” and “Weird” are what’s up your alley, try this book.”
2: “Strangely, your book reminds me of a noir crime novel. It’s that unique distinct style that gives flavour to the characters. If I had to be specific, really reminds me of Dresden (Jim Butcher). You just have this way with words and scenes and characters hat is just so genuine. It’s such a well written book! People are missing out on something really special.”
3: “Chapel Orahamm gives us a very different kind of romance. It’s nothing like you expect. In a post apocalyptic world this romance is filled with unique situations that bring you closer to every character. You will open your heart to all of them.”
4.: “This book haunted me in my dreams, and pulled me away from chores. The storytelling is amazing, the detail and vast world that Chapel has created dragged me into Caeruleum alongside Lunam and Sanctus, and I’ve never wanted to be a part of a family so bad.
If you’re hemming and hawing, and thinking, “Eh, maybe later” – don’t. Just buy the book, give it a chance, and have your mind blown away. Thank you for writing this, Chapel, and I sincerely hope there will be a sequel of some kind.”
