The Book Worm: The Eternal Gift by Candy Crum

GREENSBURG – This week, I will be reviewing The Eternal Gift by Candy Crum. She is another local author, who wrote the novel while living in North Vernon. I freely admit to having a strong interest for books written by local authors, being a local author myself, so if anyone knows of books that fit that description, please don’t hesitate to let me know. As always, requests for reviews can be sent to amanda.browning@greensburgdailynews.com.

Book description: The Eternal Gift by Candy Crum

A young girl (Kailah) discovers that she is from a lost and forgotten powerful Immortal blood line after she meets a strange new physician at work. She begins to have visions and see spirits and has trouble controlling bad things from happening when she is angry. Along the way she discovers the terrible truth about who she is and the incredible power that is locked away deep inside her. Her Immortal ancestors want to use her to destroy the vampire race. Vampires want to use her power to destroy her Immortal ancestors. But hiding in the shadows are those who have been watching her since she was born. They want to help Kailah discover who she is and help her learn to use her abilities. They simply want for her to make the right decision before it’s too late. Unfortunately for them time is not on their side and the Rogue Vampires have plans for Kailah no one could have imagined.

The Eternal Gift falls into the New Adult Paranormal Fiction genre. It is the first novel in The Eternal Series. It follows a young woman named Kailah Clark, the protagonist who learns early on that the world was not at all the place she believed it to be.

Kailah’s world changes drastically and quickly in the book, and her reactions to those changes were realistic. She didn’t just accept the supernatural, but fought against it until she was left with no choice but acceptance.
