“This book is unlike any other you’ll read. A lot of the time I as I read it I imagined it as anime or could picture it as a graphic novel. Very visual writing and an interesting story about keeping promises and getting a second chance to make right mistakes from past lives, and about how the strength of love can cross the boundaries of reality and time. ”
-Cindy C. Bennett
With our first stop on the A Space Between Worlds Vol.1: Conception Blog Tour, Cindy Bennett shares her thoughts on the novel. Along with this, two excerpts of the novel are shared.
ABOUT A SPACE BETWEEN WORLDS VOL.1 CONCEPTION:
Songstress Shanti’s final performance is no different than any other. Gazing into the mirror, the Songstress laments her faceless curse. To hide her unsightliness, she dons a beautiful mask. She knows she doesn’t belong in the darkness. Her desire is to live in a world of eternal light, to be seen for who she truly is.
An enigmatic man who calls himself Avidia beckons Shanti, claiming to know how to conceive the world of light sleeping inside of her, and escape her current world of darkness, Cauraaha. Avidia poses the question that will be the key to her desire, as well as an unresolved pain:
“What is your first memory?”
Reno, a gentle florist, has his own stigma, a translucent coil of thorns wrapped around his arm, draining him of life at the utterance of the word “Promise”. Hidden away in his heart is the knowledge of a past he doesn’t wish to face, one that connects to Shanti, Avidia, and her curse.
A dual narrative of introspection and self-discovery, A Space Between Worlds eloquently questions the truths of life and death, timeless bonds, and regret through lyrical imagination, philosophy, surrealism, and a journey through the unconscious mind.
