Gemma is in her fourth meeting of the day with her third cup of coffee trying to listen while talking herself down from a panic attack. Will the day ever end? Will Jack ever stop talking? Doubtful. And what if she runs into that new guy that she keeps seeing? Will she talk to him? Unlikely. Her chest tightens as her mind races. Calm down, Gemma. Just breathe.
Mythtefied is an epic journey of gods, beasts, and ancient legends.
Caelan is the mortal son of the great god, Donus. But is he ready for the chaos he is destined to tame? He doesn't think so. In fact, he doesn't even know about his destiny, even though the rest of the township knows it all too well. Is he ready to save the world? Or will the half-god fail his township and his absent father to be a normal boy instead?
"Son of Donus, she thought. She had heard legends of the son of Donus. The Chonotaurs even fought out battles, and the oracles invoked his name. She wondered how such a shy and sheltered boy could ever be the man of whom they spoke."
"Mythtefied is a great new fantasy novel penned by newcomer Camille Michaels. The book is rich with detail, from mundane daily habits to the evocative scenes and stimuli present in every new moment in the book. The book has a smooth flow to its storytelling and moves at a very satisfying pace. It's evocative, expansive, and engaging, defying expectation where you might least suspect. A debut novel to be commended."
