Within the world of Popla, the gods rule over mankind. Thanks to their order, mankind lives safe from the dangers of the world’s monsters and demon beasts. However, even with their protection, there are some who have chosen to rebel against their benevolent masters.
Having lost his sister to a mysterious sickness called the Seventh Blessing, rumored to have been created by the gods themselves, A young man named Luna will attempt to rescue her soul from death. Armed with a living blade, he will oppose the order of the gods – going as far as to request the aid of a legendary demon named Ten.
Within this epic fantasy adventure, the trio will explore a world together, where divinity and mortality are intertwined. However, at the end of their journey, will the true secret of the Seventh Blessing tear them apart?
The Seventh Blessing by R.L. Baxter is uniquely told from first-person point of view, which isn’t typically what readers prefer. So, if you’re up for the challenge or are the rare person who enjoys first-person, then this is your book.
This is a debut novel for the new author and is a good attempt at working out a story. There are many mistakes throughout the book, but you’ll find the characters engaging and I did enjoy the jokes that fell flat. You can see his dry sarcasm shining through.
We encourage the author to continue on their journey and we hope to see a more mature version of this story in the future.
Winner gets a paperback of The Seventh Blessing + accompanying novella OR digital formal.
