I was asked to review this story by Mac Rome a fellow author at Crimson Frost Books. Here’s what it’s about:
A little girl whose family has been split up by divorce is led by a ghost to some dice with the power to warp the personal realities of those who roll them. Using them to make herself a teenager, and her teenage sister a little girl, she starts a chase to bring her home and set things right. Then, as her mom begins to understand the dice’ s potential, she comes up with a plan to get back at the trophy wife who stole her husband. But, when she learns the dice’ s true origins, which are linked to tragedy and death, the mom questions what to do next.
A Game With Conjured Dice’ s plot is a clever mix of quirky fantasy and poignant human tragedy.
The magical elements enhance the story’s mystery and suspense and touch ordinary lives with pure supernatural fantasy. There are ghosts, paranormal forces, secrets and magical dice.
Jennifer the mother of the two girls whose lives are touched by the dice faces a moral dilemma when she realises their power. Will she choose personal gain or the greater good?
The fast paced plot flows well and subtly reveals connections between the past and present as it pulls all the threads together to make a happy ending. If you enjoy urban fantasy with a touch of the comic book super-heroine this mystical story is for you.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
