This Book Box comes with the book of the month, To Astera, With Love, and 3 - 5 goodies.





The magic of storytelling...

I was absolutely won over from Amanda's ability to write a drama with justice issues for characters only mentioned in fantasy novels. What a great way for a reader to consume other genres they would normally skip over.  Amanda Ross wrote with as much creative care as the painters who completed the Sistine Chapel. 


The story itself was realistic which is in part why I found myself relating to both the heroes and the antagonists.  At times I even related to the protagonists and the love interest.  I would reread in anticipation of the sequel as I would review artwork from the vatican museums. Some experiences are memorable. Hope you enjoy To Astera, With Love as much as I did.

To Astera, With Love Book Box

  • America, 2022 - drugs are legal, witches are real, and a literal vampire is President. In this world of boutique blood bars and policies that force witches to out themselves, 21-year-old Mercury Amell just wants to live. He wishes that the ages-old feud between vampires and witches didn’t exist. He wishes that his powers and his skin color didn’t increase his odds of being burned at the stake. After making a powerful enemy, Mercury and his friends must travel to Astera, an annual gathering of all witchkind. They battle vampiric cops, evil witches, aggressive humans, and each other along the way as they struggle to make it in one piece. Will their collective power be enough to get them to Astera safely? Or will they fall prey to their enemies and the laws that spell their destruction?
