Blog Tour: Eleusis - Genevieve Fairbrother

$2.99 on Kindle

Her parents are dead and now a moody trespasser has set up camp on the property Macy has inherited. When the stranger confesses himself to be an ageless sea-god and tells her she has been guarding a secret she never knew existed, her once simple life takes a drastic turn. Just when she thinks it can’t get any stranger, a back door to the Underworld opens up and it’s time to run like hell.

Mythology and contemporary life collide as this fast-paced novel explodes and dark forces tracking Macy surface to capture her. In the transatlantic chase that follows, she learns of her forgotten past and a centuries-old connection to the sea-god who helps her escape. A tragic miscalculation derails Macy and in a moment of self-sacrifice she ends up where it all began, trapped in the Underworld.

Has she learned enough about her past to forge a meaningful future? Utterly alone, she realizes that to gain real freedom, she must reject her assigned place in history and in doing so risk everything.

Events challenge her whilst she comes to grips with her legacy and decides what she wants in life. Family betrayal, sinister plot twists, and unlikely friends fill this exhilarating story of one woman’s journey to shape her future as she learns her true identity and strives to become a force in her own right.

Eleusis by Genevieve Fairbrother is one-of-a-kind contemporary paranormal adventure novel that narrates a unique perspective on women and relationships using the life of one immortal woman moving through time.

Guest Post
Greek mythology for centuries has been the ultimate "Urban fantasy" or "Paranormal adventure romance" series. It has been said that there is only one story and for western civilization Greek mythology was the original. One story stuck out for me as a child and that was the abduction of Persephone by Hades. Ripped from her life by Hades, she was cast into the underworld in what I now see as the original rape scene. As a child I always wondered why when no one else could or would help her she did not try to escape. It troubled me to the point that I re-imagined a different ending and set my Persephone on a journey from imprisoned to escaped by empowering her. Eleusis is the place where the ancient Greeks believed Persephone exited the underworld when she was allowed to return to her mother for the summer.

First thoughts after.....
Good closure however it does leave you wondering if more is to come.

How distracted did I get?
 Eleusis is a fascinating take on mythology!  Macy is lost but grows and finds out about herself and grows through the story.  Jason is a fun leading man who is easy to fall for!  Without giving too much of the story I will finish with this.  Eleusis is a new interesting take on mythology.  If that's your thing I'd grab a copy
I give Eluesis......
