17-Year-Old Author Publishes Fantasy/Fiction YA novel

The book tells the story of Angel Laramie who is given emotions as a trial to decide once and for all if angels are ready to feel again.

"I want readers to see that it is essential to consider expansive thinking about outdated rules and norms for society and to embrace the open-mindedness that is sorely lacking in the world today.”— A. L. Slade

STRATFORD, ONTARIO, CANADA, February 17, 2022 / -- For A. L. Slade, writing allows her to create a world that is something incredible and what makes it unique is knowing that she can be a part of it. She believes her imagination creates an escape beyond her ordinary existence. Her story examines the relationship between angels, God, and humans in such an unparalleled way, using her imagination and research efforts to come up with “The Bloodshed Of The Betrayed” (self-published through AmazonKDP).

The book tells the story of Angel Laramie, who is given emotions as a trial to decide once and for all if angels are ready to feel again. However, she soon becomes sidetracked by an infatuation with a human called Maggie, prompting her to neglect her orders and allow her mission to fail. She returns to her superiors in hopes of helping the human only to learn her feelings were a test. Her failure means her banishment to Earth until she fades away forever.

An excerpt from the book:

"I can’t even begin to comprehend the sensation that imbues my chest when I see her. As soon as I catch her in my periphery, I can’t bring myself to look away—when I regard her, I’m struck by the sight of her soul.

Even if it is merely for a second, I become transfixed by it; its colour is indescribable, one not yet seen nor termed by humans. Her presence encapsulates a warm hug promising comfort and safety, the burst of uncontrolled laughter in a spontaneous moment of jubilation, and the purest intimacy one could experience with their most trusted partner, and tethers them to a word I’ve never known before; home."

Available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble as an Ebook (and NOOK), Paperback, and Hardcover.
