Greetings fellow artists and art fans!
I'm an author and an artist with a debut novel fresh off the digital press for Kindle and wanted to share it here:
Psyche is a young visual artist struggling to jumpstart her painting career. Alexius is a powerful warrior angel banished to roam the earth wingless because of his disobedience. Immensely talented but penniless and alone, Psyche is ready to give up all hope of artistic success until she receives word of a wealthy patron willing to offer her the commission of a lifetime. Little does she know that her mysterious benefactor is an ancient and evil being planning to use her creative power for his own wicked means. Alexius has been sent to stop her from completing the job, with the promise that if he succeeds he will earn back his stolen wings and his place in Paradise. But when the paths of mortal maid and celestial warrior cross, a deeply passionate but forbidden romance develops, leaving Alexius torn between his unorthodox love for the lovely little artist and the order to complete his assignment and return home. As the tension builds, Alexius must ultimately decide between his heart and his calling, leaving all of Creation hanging in the balance...
A reviewer at Joyfully Reviewed had this to say about Psyche's Gate:
"Long ago, warrior angel Alexius was banished from heaven and brutally stripped of his wings. Now he has a chance at redemption. He must stop a powerfully talented human artist from being used by a demon to to create something that can bring forth the most deadly of evils. However, after seeing Psyche, the woman whose life he cannot spare, Alexius knows that he cannot go through with his task. Instead, he will do all in his power to keep Psyche from harm. But a romance between angel and human is forbidden and their actions will impact not only their own destiny, but the fate of all creation.
Enter the world of angels, demons, and art in the evocative Psyche's Gate. Danielle D. Smith has penned a fantastically vivid tale of good, evil, and everything in between. I admit I found Psyche's Gate to be a fascinating read. It's interesting, frequently dark, and each character is developed with great care...I absolutely loved Alexius...I admire how Ms. Smith brought the world of Psyche's Gate to life in such great detail and look forward to reading more of her work."
Check out Psyche's Gate and consider adding it to your electronic library today. :)
