Amora by Grant J. Hallstrom

“If she prefers to lie in a tomb instead of my bed, I cannot stop her,” the stern patrician declared.

Explore the path to redemption, forgiveness and healing as we witness the characters in Grant Hallstrom’s novel, Amora, struggle with their pains of loss and betrayal, the burden of guilt, and the drive for revenge.

This engaging historic epic is based on the true story of the noblewoman who inspired Justin Martyr’s petition to the Roman Senate, and is a story of sacrifice, a sweeping action-adventure and a moving examination of spirituality and faith.

Executive reviews:

“This is a powerful story that will, unquestionably, resonate with people of faith, but has enough universal appeal to find a home with crossover readers as well.”

“The core concept of the novel feels like Christian forgiveness on a collision course with revenge.”

“The ideas of vengeance and forgiveness as two sides of a coin is a really compelling underlying motif for this novel.”

“I loved the inexorable pull of vengeance and betrayal pulling on all the characters. Knowing that the merciless hand of fate is moving towards Leo, creates the kind of delicious tension that drives stories in this genre.”

“The novel does a great job zooming out for the big picture but also being able to really focus in on intimate human details and moments with these characters.”

“The blending of several distinct and quite separate storylines come together very well and provide an emotionally satisfying end to the book.”

Synopsis...

An ancient grudge. A forbidden love.

The only thing worse than being a demon is being a Valari. As an undergraduate at Los Angeles’s Alameda University, Kara Valari can sometimes succeed at forgetting she’s both. Lost between the pages of the classics and tucked into the shadows of lecture halls, she can dodge the paparazzi’s lenses as well as her family’s publicized dramas—not to mention their private expectations. She has one more year to feed her true passions. Then she’ll be expected to fulfill a much darker destiny.

Cursed with inexplicable strength and godlike stature, literature professor Maximus Kane knows all about darkness. Every day he’s reminded of the missteps of his childhood and the devastating consequences they’ve had on those dearest to him. To atone, Maximus spends his nights alone and his days submerged in the quiet life of academia. His existence has become a study in control, and he’s become a master at it—until Kara Valari walks into his toughest course.

Viscerally, Kara’s everything he craves. Logically, she’s everything he rejects. She’s a starlet of privilege. She’s also a student. And after one touch, he can’t deny that she’s awakened something in him that may never go dormant. Noth

Captain Eva Innocente and the crew of La Sirena Negra find themselves once again on the fringe of populated space—and at the center of a raging covert war. When Eva’s sister asks for help locating a missing scientist, promises of a big paycheck and a noble cause convince Eva to take the job despite lingering trust issues.

They ultimately find themselves at the last place Eva wants to see again—Garilia—where she experienced her most shameful and haunting failure.

To complete her mission and get paid, Eva must navigate a paradise embroiled in a rebellion, where massive forests and pristine beaches hide psychic creatures and pervasive surveillance technology. Can she find her quarry while avoiding the oppressive local regime, or will she be doomed to repeat past mistakes when her dark deeds come to light?
