Fantasy is one of the genres with the most potential. It can be anything and do anything, explore a variety of topics and themes, as well as mythologies. However, many books in the genre have been stuck in the mold of medieval fantasy, repeating the same tropes, characters, and creatures over and over. But modern authors try to explore other cultures and mythologies to bring them to life. Vox Deruste, with the book The New Age: The Caribbean witch, is drawing from a rich and eclectic mythology to create a unique experience for the reader.
The New Age: The Caribbean witch is a modern fantasy novel with a stylish story and an exciting plot full of twists and drama. It follows the adventures of a young woman and her family who are facing secrets from the past of their own ancestors, a change in the world, a possible apocalypse, and a whole other set of challenges. Through a conspiracy, an end of the world coming in, and family conflicts, all the members of this clan will have to work together not only to survive but to face a world that is rapidly changing.
Deruste crafts a colorful cast of characters: a demigod with powers that have just been made manifest and a Hindu demigoddess, the tough Romani Vasilisa, and a trans-Egyptian magician are all part of the novel. In this sense, the author tries to expand the reach of traditional fantasy and create a story with a rich, distinct world and mythology.
The New Age: The Caribbean witch is the author's debut novel, and it shows a lot of promise. Deruste is not afraid to do something unique and create their own world and characters with a strong sensitivity towards the characters, their backgrounds, and the various cultures that are present in the novel.
The book is sure to be of interest to lovers of fantasy, especially fantasy that does not stay within the typical medieval or urban fantasy and goes beyond European traditions and mythologies. The book brings to life a versatile series of fantastic creatures with different abilities and affinities for the magic to create something novel.
This novel is sure to thrill those looking for an experience outside the fantasy mainstream. It combines a family-focused story with conspiracies, magical powers, and many adventures, promising a thrill ride from the first to the last page. The book can be interesting to those who want something less traditional and with a strong depiction of family dynamics and interactions.

Hi, Great to have you with us today! Please tell us about yourself.

The book is about a group of people that fate has conspired to bring together. All with their issues and trauma as a conspiracy unravels around them. Not knowing who the big threats are and their issues getting in the way of making things clear.
