A Few Details about A Wish Too Dark And Kind
A Wish Too Dark And Kind is my first novel, and it is a work of passion, love, and hard work. I still remember the long days passed studying the details of the European occult traditions that provide the skeleton to the world-building, and all the work to get that out of my head and into the page. It has been five years of studying for it, writing it, and honing it. While so much has changed, this story has remained a constant.
The novel follows the path of eight party guests who become embroiled in a dangerous battleground of sacrifices, immortality, magic, and deceit. With this novel I wanted to tell two stories, one about connections and the other about isolation, so the book runs along two plotlines. The first, in modern times, is the story of Alex and the other guests trying to understand the meaning behind the party they’ve been invited to and what the intentions of their host, Arnaud Demeure, are. The second is narrated through documents, notes, and letters scattered throughout the book; it tells the story of Demeure, how he came to be who he is, and what binds him and his guests in the circle at the foundation of a sacrificial ritual.
You’ll like if you enjoy dense mythologies, realistic magic systems, mystical/horror atmospheres, raw fights, high pace, and dark gothic settings. As for every book, I don’t think this would appeal to everyone. For example, if you immediately associate Urban Fantasy to Romance, this will not be the book for you. If likeable characters are a must, you might want to avoid this book too, as most of the characters are gray – some downright dark – and you’ll see the good guys do pretty terrible things in here. Finally, the non-linear progression of the plot, the many points of view, and the entanglement of two story lines might annoy some readers.
All in all, I wanted to write a book I’d enjoy reading. I think I did it, but at this point, it might be more important to know what you think about it.
