Guest Post | A Soul Reclaimed #BlogTour #giveaway @XpressoTours

Kicking off the week with quite an insightful post from author Shayna Grissom.

about the book

Soul reclaimed

Hell is divided into seven regions. The first region is designated for the purest of souls, the seventh is for the evilest. There was once a king of Hell, but the steward family has ruled for centuries.

Nora, the stepdaughter of the steward is undone when her mother and step-father take away her beloved tutor, Peter. When Nora confronts the steward and her mother, the discussion is heated and ends with the steward in inexplicable pain.

Shortly after, Nora finds herself in the Starry Wood. Peter told her of the perils within the forest, and it’s not long before the inhabitants of the wood find her.

A giant hunter named Aegis comes to Nora’s aid. He is drawn to Nora, compelled to protect her from the steward’s assassins, the giants, and the evil souls who escape the seventh region.

Together, they travel the seven layers of Hell to discover why the steward is so threatened by a teenage girl.

I love natural science and darker things. I refer to myself as a closet Goth and my family refers to my interests as “Shayna stuff”. My house is filled with skulls and largely inspired by Crimson Peak. I’d paint everything black if I could. So, I am dark, but I’m accepting that as I grow older.

I get a little dark in A Soul Reclaimed. Even my husband felt uncomfortable reading certain parts, but I think we all have that dark spot in our hearts that frighten us. For me, exploring Nora’s darkness made me feel like it was okay to accept my own. It’s possible to reconcile that people are complex and strange while being kind and good. Nora sees the worst of herself in A Soul Reclaimedand comes out the other side with a better understanding of herself. I think we all make that trip at some point.
