The person Gemma most talks to is herself. She is constantly arguing and discussing events with herself more than anyone in her life. As she continues her journey to quell her anxiety, she hits a few bumps with her friendships and her relationship with the man she has dubbed McGruff. Since the day she met him, he has been a perplexing source of both anxiety and calm, and now she is faced with uncertainty as to her feelings about him. And to add to that, she is confronted with a stress provoking situation with one of her coworkers.
With her job always at the forefront of her anxiety, will he new confusion about these two men take the lead? Or will a newfound contentment with her career cause her to withdraw into her own mind even more? And what if that contentment is suddenly taken away?
“I flashback to all the times I prayed something like this would happen, that something would happen to the building so I wouldn’t have to go to work.
Oh my God, did I do this? Did I wish this into happening? Did I do this with my mind?
Shush. It’s like a dream come true.”
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."
