Cinthia Koeksal | 1 comments Hi everyone!:) Below are some details about my first novel The Scarlet Omen should you be interested in reading something new. Looking forward to hanging around here. See you around:)

What do a secret gateway and a three hundred year old prophecy have to do with a Malaysian teenager? Everything.

Join Anjeli on an adventure that will alter your perception of Asian mythology and leave you craving for more.

The Scarlet Omen is a magical tale about sacrifice, love, loyalty, betrayal and adolescent madness. It addresses the issues accompanying the age old mother-daughter relationship, the stigmas that go with it and its role in shaping one's own personality, while introducing readers to an Asian culture rich in strength and beauty. Readers will be pulled into a world of magic, humour and adventure, where good and evil fight to survive, while being constantly reminded of their own relationships, love lives, day to day hardships and, most importantly, their own humanity.

Summary (could contain spoilers)

The Valley of the Hornbills, an ancient land surrounded by magic and legend, suffers under the tyranny of Lady Suriya, the vampire queen. Babies are being taken at dark moon, magical properties are stolen before they can replenish and the inhabitants live in constant fear of losing their loved ones to the blood drinkers. But the fairies, humans, animals, tree spirits, dragons, water people and mountain people do not lose hope. They believe in the prophecy:
“One day, our beloved valley will be soaked with blood of the innocent. Evil that has come from the outside world will reign and nothing can stand in its way. But when it seems that all hope is lost, a dark skinned girl with almond shaped eyes, on a quest to escape the demons of her past, will come from the outside to rid our valley of the evil queen. In the end, only one will remain standing. We pray that it is the Nirupita*.”
However, the Appointed, Anjeli, a sixteen year-old girl haunted by omens of blood orgies, angels and demons, does not yet know that she is to save a whole civilization. She is living the life of a somewhat normal teenager, learning about young love and feuding with her over-protective mother, Alice. But one dreadful day, Alice passes away suddenly of a heart attack and Anjeli is thrown into a pit of despair at having taken her mother for granted. She scores her subconscious for memories that will redeem and remind her that it had not only been war and tears between them. With her boyfriend, Mark, Anjeli revisits a town in Borneo where Alice and she were once happy together. She is completely submersed in her memories and does not realise that she is being led to fulfill her destiny. Prophecies have a way of taking what is rightfully theirs.
