Who: J.S. Bailey
What: The Land Beyond the Portal
As Laura placed her left foot on the floor, something clicked and a low, humming vibration filled the room. Suddenly, she was surrounded by an intense, blinding, white light, and she was gone.
It’s a dark, snowy night when Laura awakens at the bottom of a staircase with a horrible headache and no idea how she got there. To make matters worse, she is alone in the house, snowed in by a blizzard, and has no way to call for help. While exploring the house in a desperate attempt to trigger the return of her memory, she discovers a small room beneath the basement. She steps inside, and an unknown force instantly transports her to a mysterious, pastoral land.
She finds a quaint village that at first glance seems like a peaceful place; but Laura soon learns that peace is merely an illusion. Why are terrible rumors circulating about the village’s leader? Why do the villagers worship a sinister deity who bears no resemblance to her own powerful and loving God? Most importantly, will she ever remember who she is and find her way home? In her quest for answers, she uncovers a myriad of forbidden secrets that might keep her trapped in The Land Beyond the Portal.
Cover: Very cool, I've seen a lot of black & blue color combos lately. I think it's becoming a trend.
My Thoughts: Ok, so you all know what a cover whore I am right? Well the interest in this book actually started with the synopsis. It seems as though J.S. has created a very different and mysterious world, and I am really interested to see what this Land Beyond the Portal holds!
