The Book: Willows of Fate
The Author: Suzanna J. Linton
The Story: All her life, Desdemona has seen things others haven’t. Dragons, knights, dwarves, kids with three eyes. Heeding her mother’s advice, she keeps silent about this and struggles through life, pretending everything is normal.
The break comes when her father’s disappearance drives her into a life of sex and alcoholism. Eventually, she struggles free. She begins to build a life for herself and learns how to ignore the “phantoms.”
At her mother’s death, Desdemona returns to a home haunted with memories but she is determined to not be shaken from what little normalcy she has.
However, when her brother is murdered and she uncovers a family secret, Desdemona realizes that she may not be insane after all. What she sees may actually be real. And what she sees has begun to tell her to go with them to their world, that she is in danger, and that she has something others would kill for.

Review by Kerah 13:
As another fellow reviewer said, this story is quite unique. We’ve all read stories or seen TV shows/movies about people who are able to see the dead, but what about dragons, knights, and the like? What would a story like that be like? Fun is what it’s like!
The main character, Desdemona, can see knights, dragons, and all sorts of fantastical creatures. I don’t want to give away too much, but I really enjoyed this novel. I’m hoping to see more adventures of Desdemona in the future and more of Ms. Linton’s captivating style!
