Of the Stars
You must choose: forsake your darkness or fight for it?
Norah Kestrel, a burned out mental health therapist in her late twenties, finds solace in helping others at Corvid's Hospital while locking away her own haunting wounds within the spare room of her Gothic home.
Magical happenstance introduces her to her newest friend and colleague, Dexteras Doe, an elderly man with amnesia and a fading sense of existence. Their captivating connection sparks an insatiable curiosity for their untold pasts.
Drawn into an underground fight club promising long-sought answers for spilled blood, Norah and Dex unravel the mysteries of their identities and the enigmatic beings lurking beneath the club's crimson neon. But as they confront their forgotten traumas, a chilling question arises: is their bond destined by the alignment of much darker stars?
Embark on a modern, fantastical journey that showcases the found-families who teach us to fall in love with healing ourselves, and the found-families best left unfounded. Experience a psychological narrative that cares for its readers and empathizes with the tired and self-aware who go to therapy on behalf of the generations before them who did not. New and established adult audiences will find confidants in neurodiverse and disabled characters and a father-daughteresque duo learning to craft their identities from scratch while overcoming complex intergenerational curses, grief, and loneliness.
