Book Description

100% of the author’s proceeds will be donated to Give Kids the World, a charitable organization where children with life-threatening illnesses and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free fantasy vacations. www.GKTW.org. The authors, creator and publisher are in no other way affiliated with this organization.
Mark Miller’s One is a spiritual anthology examining True-Life experiences of Authors and their Faith. As the series evolves expect to discover what it means to have faith, no matter what that faith is and no matter where they live. Remember that we are all part of this One World.
In Story Seven, award-winning poet Rachel Hunter tells a personal story of her battle with Anorexia Nervosa. Her ordeal is touching and emotional. In this private glimpse of her life, she shows how close she was to dying and the realizations that came with it.

Born in 1993, Rachel Hunter has always been fascinated with words and the intricate way in which they combine. Since a child, she has been an avid writer, winding vibrant tales and elaborate stanzas on folded bits of paper.
As the years passed, her love of words never died; her adoration for reading fared no equal. Always with her nose in a book, Rachel took fondly to works spanning all genres. Yet it was the compelling grasp of fantasy and science fiction that wrenched her fascination above all.
In 2007, Rachel was selected a state winner of the Minnesota Promising Young Writers Program. Accordingly, her winning poem, It All Starts with Creativity, was published in An Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans.
Senior year of high school proved another momentous year. A winner of the Oklahoma Young Writers Competition, Rachel was awarded with publication of her Sestina of Elven Regret in the 2010-2011 anthology, Growing Voices.
But her writing does not end there. Currently pursuing a degree in the medical field at the University of Oklahoma, she aspires to illuminate the creative spark of eager readers. Fulfilling the desire to incite intrigue, she seeks to explore new worlds and create vast empires of her own. Empyreal Fate is only the first of her series. Indeed, it is only the beginning. Updates can be found on her blog: http://www.rachel-m-hunter.blogspot.com or website: http://www.wix.com/rachel_hunter/author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A heart throbbing tour of her painful awakening. March 31, 2012
By Who?
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It has been so long since I have been pulled deep into the pages, the mind, the suffering of an author; I am at a loss of words, still reeling from the empathetic struggle, so much passion and strife written so eloquently. Masterfully crafted and well written, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that might be living with the thralls of anorexia. Furthermore, the artistry and craft of her writing deserves to be read, to be felt, to be lived. If you want to be inspired, read this book, period.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Choice of Life March 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have never read the experience of anorexia written so vivdly. It was as if one could feel the very essence of the battle and the choice to turn from death to life. It took great courage both to conquer what was faced and to write it for others to read. I commend the author from the bottom of my heart, and I commend her father for loving her enough to never give up.

This is a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warning: this book may change how you see the world March 3, 2012
By AFW

Anorexia isn't anything that I've ever experienced or been in contact with (to my knowledge). I picked up this story out of curiosity and was surprised at how personal a connection I found.

It's the little details that really affected me in "Perfect Nothing." Hunter brings us into a world obsessed with numbers--but numbers that are a sinister and deadly equation. Waist size, hip size, measurements...she shows us what it is like to perceive the world from the point of view with someone suffering from an eating disorder. Most of us have had moments where we've felt upset or embarrassed by our physical appearance--the protagonist of this story, however, is trapped in her own personal struggle, unable to perceive how her actions affect others at the beginning of the story.

Whereas some other stories about illnesses focus on the protagonist's fight alone, Hunter has the honesty and sincerity to also address how anorexia affects those who love the afflicted. It is not easy to read "Perfect Nothing" because it is so real and so painful at points but the conclusion of the story gives the reader hope for both the protagonist and others who have experienced this struggle. Although the message of this story is ostensibly about an eating disorder, I found a deeper meaning from it in considering my own self-image and the way that I myself have related to other people. An excellent read and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing young writer June 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With "Perfect Nothing," Rachel Hunter, author of Empyreal Fate: A Llathalan Annal (Volume 1), immediately seizes your emotions with a siren call that draws you ever closer to the ghoulish world of anorexia nervosa that once she inhabited. Your heart is wrenched first one way, then another, as she summons the kraken to latch onto the ship of your sympathy and to immerse you fully into the depths of her despair.

It is impossible to read "Perfect Nothing" without tears streaming from your eyes, even if you have never had your own encounter with this disorder. Ms. Hunter's writing has such a natural flow to it that one would think the words come effortlessly to her. Yet, as an author myself, I know that is seldom the case with any writer. I find it amazing to see writing of this quality produced from the pen of one so young, so it's a safe bet that we have much yet to enjoy of Rachel's writing. In fact, I would not be surprised at all to see her name on the best-seller list in the not-too-distant future.
