Soul of the Unborn by Natalia Brothers
Hello Readers, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to my friend Natalia Brothers. Natalia and I met in a local writer’s group years ago. She’s a wonderfully exuberant lady with a vivid imagination and a talent for writing. I was very excited to learn that she’d published her book and I look forward to reading it.
You’ll have a chance to meet her next Saturday at the Gold Camp Christmas Craft Fair, Saturday, December 10th, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at Cripple Creek Parks & Rec, 128 E Bennett Ave, Cripple Creek, where she’ll be autographing and selling her newly released book “Soul of the Unborn.” A gift for you or someone you know? Read on for more information. -Anita
SOUL OF THE UNBORN
Can you call yourself human if supernatural forces control your every breath, every emotion, every desire?
Posing as a folklore-tour guide, Valya Svetlova takes a group of American college students and their professor, Chris Waller, to her summer home in the Russian village of Vishenky for a few nights of supernatural phenomena. She works hard to appear a perfect hostess. Valya doesn’t want anyone to discover she harbors selfish motives when it comes to one participant, the only person who can refute a wicked tale declaring her a stillborn resurrected by a paranormal entity, a puppet in someone’s horror show destined to perish in the otherworldly dimension.
Within hours of their arrival, Valya learns that the students, too, foster some dangerous agendas. Her nascent feelings toward the handsome professor inhibit her ability to control the supernatural manifestations and her inquisitive guests. When her unforeseen affection turns Chris into a target of the malevolent forces, Valya faces the excruciating reality. It’s no longer in her human power to ensure her guests’ safety. But to keep Chris and the students alive, Valya must brush off her humanity and become something she fights so desperately to prove she is not. A soulless monster.
Born in Moscow, Natalia grew up with the romance and magic of Russian fairy tales. She never imagined that one day she’d be swept off her feet by an American Marine. An engineer-physicist-chemist, Natalia realized that the powder metallurgy might not be her true calling when on a moonless summer night she was spooked by cries of a loon in a fog-wrapped meadow.
What if, a writer’s unrelenting muse, took hold of her. Two of her passions define her being.
Natalia is an orchid expert and she writes dark fantasy.

Dressed in beige slacks and a white blouse, with blushing cheeks and a braid streaming over her shoulder and down her chest, Valya could have been a poster girl for any Russian travel agency, except for the fact that not a hint of a smile touched her lips. Watching Valya’s widening eyes, Chris thought the guide was startled by the sight of their group rather than glad her guests had arrived.
